MLB Draft 2015: Diamondbacks Draft Tracker

New, comments

Remember that thing that happened a month ago? Let's circle back to the Diamondbacks 2015 draft and see who has signed

Steven Branscombe-USA TODAY Sports

The Diamondbacks entered the 2015 draft with the first overall pick and over $12,816,100 of pool money . They shied away from high schoolers, selecting only four players outside of the collegiate market. With approximately $4.2MM committed so far, the Diamondbacks are right in line to pay out Dansby Swanson at the slot value of $8.6MM; it is only a matter of time - July 15th to be exact...

23 position players and 17 pitchers were selected by the D-backs. 12 right-handed pitchers, 5 left-handed pitchers, 12 outfielders, 5 catchers, 2 shortstops, 2 third basemen, 1 second basemen, and 1 first basemen.

We will be updating the table as notable happenings happen.

Update: 07-08-15 -The D-backs have now agreed to terms with 34 of their 40 draft selections, including all but one of their top-10 picks
