UPDATE: Perry, Green, and Linton all sign before the deadline! How awesome is that? With these final add-ons the D-backs finished with a whopping 33 signings. The money they saved by not signing Loux was clearly used to coerce the trio; each player signed for more out of slot, but who cares? If you want to know why it's such a big deal, I've included some background info on the bottom of the post.
*Updated info is bold.
With the last day to sign draft picks quickly approaching, now is a good time to take a look at who has already signed (and at what cost) along with whether or not we should expect any more before the August 16th deadline. Most of the signed players have already been assigned to either Missoula or Yakima. Clicking on a player's name will reveal where he has been sent.

Rd. 2-10 Signing bonuses: (Excluding Loux for obvious reasons)
Additionally, Ty Linton, the 14th round pick, signed for a staggering $1.25 million.
Clearly a far cry from the talent, quantity, and money spent on last year's draft but 2010 still looks like a good one in terms of signings. The two unsigned top ten picks so far this year are still trying decide whether or not to commit to college. Tyler Green is reportedly interested in committing to Texas Christian college and Blake Perry has an offer from Kentucky. We'll see what DiPoto and the rest of the FO can do.
What are you thoughts so far? Are you disappointed or satisfied up to this point?
