Our Noticias, 7/12/19: Top picks set to finally sign

Playing in the College World Series was a valid reason for the Marlins and fourth-overall pick J.J. Bleday to delay contract negotiations after the Draft in early June. Even though a deal was expected to be announced swiftly after the Vanderbilt outfielder wrapped up the title in Omaha, the deadline to sign draft picks (5 p.m. ET today) has been quickly approaching. You can breathe a sigh of relief, however, as a deal has been reportedly been struck, and should be announced in the next few hours. Kameron Misner, the 35th pick, is also tipped to put pen to paper today, but the fact that he was a potential top ten pick before his mediocre junior year—meaning he could return to Missouri to prove himself worthy of a bigger signing bonus in the Draft next year—makes his acquisition less than certain.
