Giants’ 2011 Draft Signings

It’s now been basically a month since the 2011 MLB draft was held, so I figured I’d check in on the Giants’ draft picks that have signed so far.

Here’s a quick rundown of all the signings, in order of when they signed (based on what the San Francisco Giants’ official website says).

Name	          Pos	Round	Signed
Joseph Panik SS 1 6/11/2011
Cody Hall RHP 19 6/16/2011
Jack Snodgrass LHP 27 6/16/2011
Phil McCormick LHP 31 6/16/2011
Shawn Payne 2B 35 6/16/2011
Garrett Buechele 3B 14 6/19/2011
Paul Davis RHP 17 6/19/2011
Eldred Barnett OF 29 6/19/2011
Ben Thomas 1B 34 6/19/2011
Brian Nicholson 1B 38 6/19/2011
Danny Sandbrink LHP 42 6/19/2011
Brian Maloney LHP 45 6/19/2011
Elliott Blair OF 46 6/19/2011
Kelby Tomlinson SS 12 6/24/2011
Kentrell Hill OF 10 6/25/2011
Demondre Arnold RHP 25 6/25/2011
Clayton Blackburn RHP 16 6/30/2011
Jean Delgado SS 8 7/3/2011

The Giants have yet to sign any of their picks from rounds 2-7 (and the sandwich round).

He’s not listed above, but I’m assuming that 32nd round pick Michael Mergenthaler has signed, as he’s already appeared in eight minor-league games with the Giants’ farm system (one at-bat in Triple-A Fresno…?).

Most of these guys have started with the Rookie-class AZL Giants. Here’s what they’ve done, though obviously, small sample size caution should be applied (especially in the case of those that have tossed just a few innings, it’s too early for these stats to mean much of anything).
