Dodgers sign 28 of 40 picks before deadline, including all of top 12.

The deadline for major-league teams to sign the amateur players they drafted in June has come and gone. The Dodgers signed 28 of their 40 draft picks after pitcher MJ Villegas, their 23rd-round pick, officially signed yesterday.

The highest draft pick not to sign was 13th-rounder Ty Damron, a Texas high schooler who has committed to Texas Tech University. In all the Dodgers signed 18 of their first 20 picks and 23 of their first 25.
