Tigers sign three more draft picks

Aside from the top couple picks, the top half of Detroit’s draft is starting to come together on contracts. The Tigers announced deals Wednesday with their fifth, sixth and seventh round selections.

Sixth-round pick Bryan Holaday from Texas Christian won the Johnny Bench Award last week as the nation’s top collegiate catcher this spring. He batted .355 for the Horned Frogs with 17 home runs, 24 doubles and 53 RBIs, while throwing out 46 percent of would-be basestealers.

Left-handed pitcher Alex Burgos, the fifth-round pick, went 13-1 with a 1.42 ERA for the State College of Florida at Manatee, striking out 109 batters over 95 1/3 innings.

Seventh-rounder Corey Jones, a second baseman out of Cal State Fullerton, also signed. He batted .374 with nine home runs and 56 RBIs for the Titans.

The deals bring Detroit’s total of 2010 draft signings to 28. They still have to sign top picks Nick Castellanos and Chase Ruffin.

Tigers need a shortstop and catcher and one more power hitter, like Corey Hart, from the Milk. if they do get another power hitter, than they could be in the World series.

The Tigers need to make there move now, while they can get Corey Hart, also Dunn might be another D.H and a good power hitter.
