Draft update

The Orioles announced last night they have agreed to terms with the following six 2012 draft picks: Adrian Marin (3), Brady Wager (9), Sean McAdams (14) Tommy Richards (24), Anthony Caronia (27) & Charles Porter (35).

Marin is a high school shortstop out of Miami, while Wager is a right-handed pitcher from Grand Canyon University. McAdams is a high school arm –a right-handed pitcher out of Cardinal Mooney– who is a Sarasota resident and Richards is Washington State University’s second baseman. Caronia is a shortstop out of the University of Tampa.

Porter is a 6-foot-3, 185-pound left-handed pitcher from Miami, who  was listed without a high school when he was drafted. He actually gave up baseball in favor of mixed martial arts for a while.

The club has also agreed to terms with eighth-rounder Torsten Boss, a third baseman from Michigan State University, although it hasn’t been officially announced yet.

Amateur scouting director Gary Rajsich said earlier this week that the organization hoped to start negotiations with top pick,right-handed pitcher Kevin Gausman. Gausman was the fourth overall pick out of Louisiana State University.

Under the new deadline, the Orioles have until July 13 at 5 p.m. ET  to sign their players.

Sign Gausman asap. We could use a player with the mental and physical toughness of a martial arts guy. Now does he have the talent and ability to learn
