The deadline to sign draft picks isn’t until Friday at 5 p.m., but a source confirmed Andrew Heaney is not accepting the Marlins’ final offer. Jim Callis of Baseball America first reported the news.
The Marlins’ proposed a $2.6 million signing bonus, $200,000 less than the slot amount for the ninth overall pick. Heaney, a left-hander out of Oklahoma State, asked for the full $2.8 million. Per club policy, the Marlins require a physical and full bloodwork before consummating a deal. They no longer have time to complete it before Friday’s deadline.
In fairness, without that extra stack of hundreds to pad out the heels in his shoes, David Samson would look really short.
for his generous support.
