2012 MLB Draft: Cardinals Come To Terms With 27 Draft Picks

With the 2012 MLB draft recently coming to an end, the St. Louis Cardinals made quick work locking up some of their top draft picks. The Cardinals announced that they came to terms with 27 of their 44 picks, including two of their four first round selections. The big news in the announcement was the signings of Patrick Wisdom and Steve Bean:

Among those signed include first round picks third baseman Patrick Wisdom (52nd overall) and catcher Steve Bean (59th round) as well as seven total players drafted in the first 10 rounds and 15 drafted in the top 20 rounds.

Bean, a highly-touted catcher out of Rockwall (Texas) High School, decided to sign with the Cardinals after signing a letter of intent to play college baseball at the University of Texas in the fall.

The Cardinals have yet to come to terms with Michael Wacha, who was selected 19th overall, and James Ramsey, who was selected 23rd. Ramsey is still competing for a National Championship at Florida St., so he isn't eligible to sign at this point.
