The Diamondbacks have signed No. 9 overall pick Jarrod Parker for $2.1 million, up from his MLB recommended slot of $1.89 million. As with the three players taken directly behind him (Madison Bumgarner by the Giants, Phillippe Aumont by the Mariners, Matt Dominguez by the Marlins), Parker successfully held out for 2006 slot money rather than MLB’s 2007 recommendation.
With 45 minutes to go, three first-rounders remain unsigned: Mike Moustakas (No. 2, Royals), Josh Vitters (No. 3, Cubs) and Matt Wieters (No. 5, Orioles).
