Diamondbacks Amateur Scouting Director Deric Ladnier discusses the first day of the 2019 Draft

“We were taking the top player on the board and phone calls between each pick, it was the most picks I’ve ever had, 7 picks. We have 8 picks tomorrow, so it’s almost overwhelming when you start thinking about the number of picks you have in Day 1 and going into Day 2 and you have 8 picks…....... “We weren’t taking guys because we thought we could sign them, we were taking guys because we know we can sign them. It’s the first time you look at your signability board and it’s not real big”

With 8 picks in the first 76 overall, the DBacks had the largest signing pool at over 16 Million.
