Ninth overall pick Aaron Crow has signed with the Fort Worth Cats of the American Association. The Cats said Crow will pitch out of the bullpen unless he signs a deal with the Nationals, so do not rule that out just yet. My first reaction was that Crow was gone, but he might be doing this for leverage in negotiations. Crow was 13-0 with a 2.35 ERA for Missouri last season with 127 strikeouts in 107 1/3 innings and is reportedly looking for a 7-8 million dollar signing bonus.
If he does not sign with the Nationals, he can play with the Cats and will be eligible for next years draft.
