The four juniors from Wake Forest’s baseball team have all signed with the teams that drafted them last week.
Right-handed pitchers Colin Peluse and Morgan McSweeney have signed with the Athletics and Orioles, respectively, while shortstop Patrick Frick signed with the Mariners, and left-handed pitcher Carter Bach signed with the Rays — all in the last few days.
Peluse was the Athletics’ ninth-round pick and was given a signing bonus of $149,300, which is the full slot value for being the 284th overall pick.
Signing bonuses weren’t announced for Frick (14th-round pick), McSweeney (17th round) or Bach (34th round).
This leaves two players to keep an eye on for the Deacons: Chris Lanzilli, a sophomore outfielder and the 39th-round pick of the Giants, and Blake Loubier, a signee and pitcher who was the 13th-round pick of the Red Sox. Lanzilli has reported to his team in the Cape Cod League, the Harwich Mariners.
The signing deadline is 5 p.m. July 12.
