Twins sign more draft picks

So far, the Twins have signed four of their top ten draft picks.

We all know that on Monday they inked first round pick, shortstop Nick Gordon, to a $3.8 million deal.

A couple days later, the Twins signed their eighth-round pick Max Murphy, an outfielder from Robbinsdale Cooper and Bradley University.

Now they have signed seventh round pick Andro Cutura, a righthander from Southeastern Louisiana, and 10th round pick Randy LeBlanc, a righthander from Tulane.

Signed draft picks will head to Fort Myers, Fla. to take part in a mini-camp before joining their short-season league teams.
