One of the biggest features of the site during the draft pick signing period is the Draft Pick Signing Tracker. The tracker follows how many players have been signed, which players have been signed, any reported bonus amounts, and total spending in the draft. We update the tracker immediately after a player is signed, and since Pirates Prospects broke the most draft signings last year, we often have the tracker updated before the official announcements come out.
Be sure to check out the tracker, which includes links to all of the player pages, bookmark it, and check back daily throughout the draft pick signing period in order to get the most up-to-date information on the progress of the 2011 draft. The tracker can be accessed below:
