June 9 signing updates

*7th Round pick James Ramsay says he's likely to sign with the Astros. Slot value for 7-197 is $202,300.

This has always been a huge dream of mine. Hopefully, I'll get to play in the major leagues.

*10th Round pick Austin Nicely, who found out he'd been drafted while at his high school graduation, is still undecided whether to sign or go to the University of Virginia.
I'm still in a whirlwind.

*14th Round pick Chris Cotton, LSU's closer, isn't even concerned with the Astros right now.
Excited for the opportunity given by the Astros. Still a Tiger, though, and ready for the chance to win another championship.

*This SBNation Washington State blog wouldn't be surprised to see 18th Round pick Adam Nelubowich come back to Pullman for his senior season. Prior to the draft, his hometown paper said it didn't really matter which team called his name in which round.

*23rd Round pick Thomas Lindauer is talking about the University of Illinois in past-tense, though the Champaign Room (the SBNation blog for the University of Illinois) says it's possible he'll return for his senior season. Lindauer said (pre-draft) he's willing to listen to an offer:
If it works out, it's something I want (to) do. If not, I'd be perfectly fine with being part of (Illinois) next season. 

UPDATE: Lindauer will sign with the Astros. 

*26th Round pick "William Chrismon" is actually better known as Austin Chrismon, whom the Astros drafted in the 32nd Round of the 2010 draft, and went to East Carolina.

*27th Round pick Pat Christensen is likely going to sign with Houston.

*Yeah, 35th Round pick Kacy Clemens is headed to Austin.
