Cardinals Sign 33 Draft Picks—Third, Fourth, Fifth, and Seventh Rounders Among Them

The Cardinals’ official Twitter is reporting that 33 of the team’s 52 draft picks have already signed, among them third rounder Sam Tuivailala, fourth round catcher Cody Stanley, fifth round outfielder Nick Longmire, and seventh round shortstop Greg Garcia.

Drew Benes, a 35th round pick and the son of longtime starter Andy Benes, also signed.

A number of these players will join the short-season minor league squads, whose year begins June 18, when the Batavia Muckdogs open play in the New York-Penn League. Benes, on his Twitter, suggested he would debut with the Johnson City Cardinals.
