BJ Hermsen Signs
(The Word Press page for this article can be found here)
According to an unnamed source, the Twins have signed 6th round pick BJ Hermsen. Terms of the contract were not made known to me at this time. Obviously college tuition will be part of the contract. The Iowa native was believed to be going to Oregon State, but with Friday's deadline to sign looming, talks have been ongoing. Great signing. Now, could they be lucky enough to talk Joe Loftus into forgoing his scholarship to Vanderbilt?
UPDATE - The same source tells me to expect another signing later tonight. I'll try to keep you updated.
