D-backs sign 10th-round Draft pick Winkler

D-backs sign 10th-round Draft pick Winkler

|
PHOENIX -- The D-backs announced on Sunday that they have agreed to terms with their 10th-round Draft pick Kyle Winkler, according to the D-backs' senior vice president of scouting and development Jerry Dipoto.

Winkler, a 20-year-old right-handed pitcher, was one of 30 semifinalists for the Golden Spikes Award. He garnered third-team Louisville Slugger All-American and first-team Mountain West All-Conference accolades after going 8-2 with a 1.39 ERA and 99 strikeouts in 14 games (13 starts) for Texas Christian University.

Overall, the D-backs have signed 32 of their 52 Draft selections this year.

Teams have until 9:01 p.m. MST on Monday, Aug. 15, to come to terms with their draftees, meaning official notification has to be in the Commissioner's Office when the clock strikes midnight. A team that does not sign its first- or second-round pick will receive a compensatory pick in the 2012 Draft. That selection will come at the same slot, plus one. In other words, if a team doesn't sign the No. 9 overall pick, it would receive the No. 10 pick -- technically 9A -- the following year. A team does not receive a 2012 pick if it does not come to terms with a selection made with a compensation pick this year.
