Dodgers sign four draft picks
By Mark Saxon
LOS ANGELES -- The Los Angeles Dodgers announced they have signed four of their picks from last week's draft, including first-round pick Chris Anderson from Jacksonville University. Additionally, their eighth-round pick, catcher Kyle Farmer from Georgia, announced via Twitter that he, too, has signed.
Reports indicated Anderson signed for $2.109 million, the suggested slot number for the Dodgers' top pick. The team also signed its second pick, Minnesota left-hander Tom Windle, again for slot money, or $986,500.
Other players to sign were 12th-round pick Adam Law, a third baseman from Brigham Young, and 26th-round pick Thomas Taylor, a pitcher from Kansas.
Anderson went 7-5 with a 2.49 ERA and three complete games in 14 starts this season for Jacksonville. Windle, 21, went 6-4 with a 2.14 ERA in 14 starts for Minnesota as a junior, including pitching the first nine-inning no-hitter in Minnesota history on March 8 against Western Illinois.
