Orioles agree to terms with two more
After waiting patiently for UCLA's season to end in the College World Series, the Orioles have agreed to terms with two Bruins they drafted last month, though neither is third-round pick Dan Klein, UCLA's closer.
While they continue to negotiate with Klein and have met with his representatives, the Orioles have agreed to terms with UCLA left-handed pitcher Matthew Drummond, their 20th-round pick, and UCLA outfielder Blair Dunlap, their 43rd-round pick. Both are expected to begin their professional careers in Aberdeen.
The Orioles have now agreed to terms with 29 of their 50 picks, and that number could grow in the next couple of days as the team is close to an agreement with 11th-round pick Alexander Gonzalez, a right-handed pitcher from Boca Raton High in Florida.
Despite agreeing to terms with only one of their top 10 selections and five of their top 15, the Orioles are still confident that they'll agree with most, if not all, of their top 10 selections.
