Vickerson, an infielder and 20th-round selection of the Texas Rangers, will report to the Spokane (Wash.) Indians of the Northwest League. Parks, a third baseman who was taken in the 24th round by the Los Angeles Angels, is headed for the Orem (Utah) Owlz of the Pioneer League.
Neither Ogden nor Thigpen were drafted, but they were signed as free agents by the Detroit Tigers. A shortstop and catcher, respectively, the duo will report to the Tigers’ training center in Lakeland, Fla.
Also drafted but not yet signed are pitcher Devin Jones (Baltimore Orioles) and outfielder Jaron Shepherd (Colorado Rockies). Jones has one year of eligibility remaining and could return to school.
