2014 Draft recap
Here is the rundown with everything you need to know about each of the Indians' 42 selections in the 2014 MLB Draft. To see information, capsules, scouting reports, video, and so on for each player, just click on their name below.
These capsules are free and a premium membership is not required. Please note, several premium capsules on players will be posted over the next several weeks that have much more detailed information than what is provided in their linked draft capsule.
The final tally for the 42 picks is as follows: 15 right-handed pitchers, 4 left-handed pitchers, 8 outfielders, 4 third basemen, 4 catchers, 3 shortstops, 2 second basemen and 2 first basemen. Also, 27 are college players and 15 are out of high school.
As I get information on signings, I will be providing updates in separate postings. Unofficial information will be premium only, but official releases from the team announcing signings will be posted site wide.
This 2014 Draft page will be listed for easy reference under the "Draft" tab at the top of the page (below the site logo/header). For the next two months I will also have a banner on the right side of the page to click on for easy reference.
Note: bold means they have officially signed.

On the Indians web site they show that there 18th pick Taylor Murphy as signed. Is he signed?
Tony in June 12th signing update mentioned he was going to be in Columbus this weekend. Might not be able to update until Monday.
You called the David Speer pick, I think he's a future LOOGY. Solid pick, I think he could be fringe major leaguer.
They mixed it up with 3 bats that should move quickly and help out in A-ball where a lot of bats (esp Latin) are busting right now.
While I would have liked at least 1 or 2 College pitchers in the top rounds, I still do like this draft a lot, especially the Sheffield, Papi and Bradley selections, who were among my favs in the top 100.
On day 3, Eubanks was a good pick, hope he signs. Same with Bobby Ison. If they can sign 3 of Robinson, G.Jones, Eubank and Ison, that would be very strong.
And watch out for the Ivy league selection. David Speer dominated in College and was good in the Cape. He will perform and surprise early on at least, with a LOOGY role later on..
Haven't heard dollar amount yet, but I'm guessing Patterson signs for $2,500-$5,000 and Mayweather gets $5,000-$10,000 combined they might save the Indians as much as $500K.
They'll need it to sign some of these other guys who likely get overslot.
The Tribe might be willing incur cash penalties to get some of these guys signed. From my understanding the Tribe did incur cash penalties on the international mkt by exceeding their signing pool. If the Tribe did, they could spend about $400K without losing a draft pk.
Just a great site period.
Good job Tony by you and your team. A lot of great information for us fans that do not really follow the college and high school scene closely.
And get Lonnie's bust in upstate NY ready!!! Unreal! Forget .380, I'll take a career .280 !!!
Do your homework and maybe you get lucky once in a while. Otherwise just pass on the pick.
And he wants to go to scum?
