Will Nimmo Sign?

According to Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork, a Mets official said that the organization is confident that a deal will get done with 1st round draft pick (13th overall) OF Brandon Nimmo prior to tomorrow's deadline.

Analysis: As usual with players who are committed to college's or universities, they use there committment as leverage to squeeze every possible dollar out of the organization that drafted them. I do expect Nimmo to eventually sign as the temptation to turn down millions of dollars and a major league contract will be too much for the teenager to pass up.
