Zach McKinstry, the Central Michigan University shorstop whom the Dodgers selected in the 33rd round of last month’s draft, has signed his first professional contract according to wane.com.
Reports Glenn Marini:
By signing McKinstry forgoes his final two years of eligibility at CMU. A draft-eligible sophomore, McKinstry hit a team-best .325 this past season playing stellar defense for the Chippewas.
He spent this summer playing baseball with the Orleans Firebirds in the Cape Cod League. Zach reports to the Dodgers’ facility in Glendale, Arizona on Monday for evaluation.
The signing, which hasn’t been announced by the Dodgers yet, would put 33 of the club’s 42 draft picks under contract.
