Post MLB Draft
Since nobody's mentioned it yet, Teddy Hoffman was drafted by the Tigers in the 15th round of the MLB draft Wednesday. Anybody know if he has plans to sign?

not sure how close the Tigers will stay to the pool limit in the 15th round
late round picks usually are signed very close to the limit
pool limit is 100K

someone (can't remember who) posted a while back, that if Teddy was drafted, he would sign
have no idea if they had the scoop or what
July 15 is the signing deadline

Can he pass and and come back for his sr year?(if he put his name in don't know why he would not sign) Like other sports, if he doesn't get an agent and such.

He could come back for his senior year if he does not sign. I hope he comes back but probably won't with our luck.

The last time we only had 1 taken in the draft (or go FA) was 2010 - Jason Martinson

HIGHLY UNLIKELY Teddy returns! He had a draft party in Brenham and is going to sign unless things go really badly. He truly does not want to come back and play for Ty....

Anyone know if Hoffman graduated? Heard he had a 4.0 GPA. I think our only hope is he hasn't graduated yet and sticks around to do so, otherwise he gone.

He has no reason to return. Even if he improved his draft position he would get less money. He has all the leverage this year, he will get his pool money this year, maybe more, it depends how many college seniors the Tigers drafted.

Harrington needs to go. He has run this program right into the ground. We are now one of the worst baseball schools in Texas.

I know a juco kid that just signed. He was a 27th round pick. Hear he got his 100K pool money plus 60K for the two years of college he will miss. 160K total. Sounds like a lot. BUT, he will only make $2500 a month as a minor leaguer, have to pay his agent, and then taxs out of the 160K.
He is a pitcher, so he took the money. Never know. Any pitch could be your last.
