Hello, and happy Friday.

On Thursday, the San Francisco Giants signed three draft picks: Casey Schmitt (San Diego State 3B/RHP, second round), Jimmy Glowenke (Dallas Baptist SS, second round compensation), and Ryan Murphy (Le Moyne RHP, fifth round).

On Wednesday, when I wrote about the Giants signing Patrick Bailey (North Carolina State C, first round), I mentioned that they’d already signed Kyle Harrison (De La Salle High School LHP, third round). It turns out the Giants hadn’t actually signed Harrison, but rather just agreed to a bonus figure with him. Now they’re in the process of signing everyone else and making Harrison’s figure work.

According to MLB Pipeline’s Jim Callis, Murphy is signing for just $25,000, only $5,000 more than the undrafted free agents got. That shouldn’t be a big surprise, since he wasn’t projected to get drafted.

Glowenke commanded a bit more, but still went well underslot.

The slot money for Schmitt has yet to be reported, but between the reported figures for Bailey, Murphy, and Glowenke, the Giants should be roughly $1.1 million underslot. The reported agreement with Harrison is for roughly $1.8 million overslot, which means the Giants need to go under by about $700,000 in the deals for Schmitt, Nick Swiney (North Carolina State LHP, second round compensation), and R.J. Dabovich (Arizona State RHP, fourth round).

I would expect those deals to be announced soon.


Did Barry Bonds hit a home run today?

A bunch.

July 3, 1995: Against the Cincinnati Reds, Bonds hit a solo home run in the 8th inning off of Xavier Hernandez. It gave the Giants an 8-7 lead, which was the final score. It was his 14th homer of the year.

July 3, 1997: Against the Oakland A’s, Bonds hit a 2-run home run in the 1st inning of Brad Rigby, scoring Jose Vizcaino. It gave the Giants a 2-0 lead, and they would win 6-4. It was his 20th homer of the year.

July 3, 1999: Against the Los Angeles Dodgers, Bonds hit a 2-run home run in the 3rd inning off of Chan Ho Park, scoring Bill Mueller. It gave the Giants a 4-1 lead, and they would win 9-1 (Beat LA). It was his 9th homer of the year.

July 3, 2007: Against the Cincinnati Reds, Bonds hit a 2-run home run in the 1st inning off of Aaron Harang, scoring Ray Durham. It gave the Giants a 2-0 lead, and they would win 7-3. It was his 17th homer of the year.
