Kevin Mooney (WSH) and Jake Drossner (MIL) have signed with their respective teams and should begin their pro careers soon.
Brandon Lowe (TB) is still negotiating with the Tampa Bay Rays and has until July 17 to strike a deal. If he doesn’t, he will return to College Park in 2016.
In full season ball, Jake Stinnett (CHC) turned in his best start of the year for Single-A South Bend on Thursday. The former second round pick did not allow an earned run over a career-high six innings, striking out four and only allowing one hit.
