Braves Rumors: Atlanta Continuing To Work To Sign No. 14 Overall Pick Kolby Allard

The Atlanta Braves are still working a deal with No. 14 overall pick Kolby Allard, according to David O’Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

“We’re still going through the process, and we’re very hopeful that we can sign Kolby,” said assistant GM John Coppolella. “You would’ve like to have had him signed earlier, but you understand that it’s a process. I wouldn’t say there’s a holdup on his end or our end, we just haven’t reached the finish line yet.”

O’Brien also said there’s a “legit chance” that the team won't sign Allard, noting that adviser Casey Close of Excel Sports has been seeking a signing bonus more in line with where Allard would’ve been drafted if a back injury didn't drop his draft stock.
