Though Bubba Starling hasn't signed yet, it has been a busy day for the Kansas City Royals front office, as they announced they have signed 30th round selection, pitcher Christian Binford. Binford who goes by the first name Mark, checks in at 6'7" 235 lbs and is a right-handed pitcher from Mercersburg Prep in Pennsylvania.
Binford has Tommy John surgery in 2009 and was committed to play next year for the University of Virginia.
This past season Binford threw 52 innings for his high school team and was 8-1 with a 0.40 ERA, including 74 strikeouts and four walks.
Things are starting to wind down, but Royals fan should still be hoping that Bubba Starling and third round slection Bryan Brickhouse are added to the fold later in the evening.
Stay tuned for more updates as the clock winds down closer to 11 pm (CST) when the deadline passes for players to sign with their major league ball clubs.
