Which Picks Actually Signed

Stephen Strasburg wasn't the only first round draft pick to leave it until late to sign his first professional deal yesterday. A host of teams closed on their opening picks from the 2009 entry draft, with No. 2 and 3 overall picks Dustin Ackley (Mariners) and Donovan Tate (Padres) also agreeing to deals within the final two hours of Monday evening.

For the record, here's the complete list of the first round selections who signed, and who didn't. Not that a particular Aaron Crow is still not under contract ... and has no recourse, with his rights held by Royals until a week prior to next year's draft:

Yeah, but Crow has until next Spring.

Purke's agent is Peter Vescovo. All of Boras' clients signed.

Au contraire, gbooksdc...LeVon Washington was/is a Boras client, and went unsigned by TB. I think there might have been one other client of his that didn't sign - I seem to remember reading something about a second-rounder.
