The silence out of Cleveland has been deafening as the deadline for signing 2010 draft picks – including former Ole Miss lefty Drew Pomeranz – looms at midnight.
There may be a flurry of deals today, as 17 of the top 32 draftees – including Pomeranz, who was taken No. 5 overall – went into the weekend unsigned.
He was the first college pitcher selected, and it’s possible some pitchers taken after him have been waiting to see the terms of his deal.
The Indians had Pomeranz in town for a physical soon after he was drafted in June, but few details about the negotiations has been seen in the Cleveland media. The team went into the weekend with its four top draft picks unsigned.
