Howard, Barzilli and Ruiz also headed to Omaha. Will be fun to watch 4 prospective Astros over the next few weeks. All 4 picks participating in the CWS are JRs, so it will be interesting to see who signs and who returns for their SR year.

Your second 12th rounder on the list should be 13 and the bonus for 9th rounder Hartman should be $10,000 (way under slot).

Astros' 13th-round pick Ryne Birk, a second baseman from Texas A&M, is set to sign with the Astros today.

#1 Whitley signs for $3.148.
In addition to Whitley, the Astros also signed six more players taken in the 2016 MLB Draft: catcher Raymond Henderson-Lozano (22nd round), infielder Troy Sieber (24th), LHP Nathan Thompson (27th), OF Chaz Pal (38th), IF Tyler Wolfe (39th) and RHP Lucas Williams (40th).

Thanks for maintaining the list.

Here's a tip:
Nathan Thompson (27th round) pitched on Monday, June 27th for Greeneville.

Does it seem like the Astros are signing picks slower this year? Are they reaching for tougher players to sign this year?
