Signings update

Okay, so there was a decent amount of news last night regarding draft signings courtesy of Brian McTaggart.

Mark Appel: Not signed, but fully engaged in talks. Luhnow hopes to sign him this week.

Andrew Thurman: The 2nd Round pick signed for full slot value ($1,397,200) and will report to Tri-City.

The Astros also signed 28th Round pick Jordan Mills, 30th Round pick Jorge Perez, 33rd Round pick Tyler White, and 36th Round pick J.D. Osborne.

And, thanks to Dustin on Twitter, we find that the Astros have signed undrafted free agents Brett Clements and Kevin Ferguson.

Clements, a catcher out of Nova Southeastern University (J.D. Martinez's alma mater), is 5'9" 180lbs and hit .292/.400/.359 with 22K:24BB for the Sharks in 2013, starting 42 of 46 games and committing two errors.

Kevin Ferguson is a pitcher from Northeastern University and led the Huskies in wins (seven), IP (104.1IP), and ERA (2.59). In 104.1IP, Ferguson allowed 90H/30ER, 93K:28BB and a .231 BAA.
