grant elmore has skills, but he needs more playing time. friend of a friend from yale.

Adam, I would imagine that a large percentage of high schooler drafted late end up not signing and going to college. Any reason why Matthew Franco decided to sign? Did the Brewers offer higher round $?

No but he didn’t have anywhere to play. Was going to walk on at TCC (Tallahassee Community College) breakout Senior Year in HS

Only received 8k signing bonus
