Rangers Sign First 5 Draft Picks

The Texas Rangers seemed to place a focus on pitching and outfielders during the 2012 MLB Draft. The team is likely pleased with how they performed in the draft, as they have wasted no time in locking up several of their selections.

Joey Matschulat of Baseball Time in Arlington reports that the Rangers have already signed their first five draft picks from this year's draft to contracts. These five players are outfielder Lewis Brinson, third baseman Joey Gallo, right-handed pitcher Colin Wiles, outfielder Jamie Jarmon and outfielder Nick Williams.

While no contract information is yet available for Brinson, Gallo and Wiles, Jim Callis reports that Jarmon signed for $601,500 and Williams inked a contract for $500,000, which is about $15,000 below Williams' pick value.
