That's not official.  He has to pass the physical.  Once that's done the Astros will be announcing the signing all over the place.
Was wondering about significance of the "official" announcement.
Much obliged.

He's supposed to be in Houston today.  If there's no announcement today that's a little worrisome.  If there's not one by the end of the day tomorrow I'll be very concerned.

The first six official signings are in.  Including the 3rd round shortstop.

No word on him so signing Beer is not yet on tap.

Beer was just on the Astros pre-game show being interviewed. Reporting to Tri-Cities.

Twin cities, Quad cities and Tri City.   Didn’t you reside in one of those cities, or in the Tri City?  Why is it Tri City anyway?

And for that matter, what is the third city (Albany Troy ??), or am I completely missing the point and not to supposed to conceive of it as three cities in the first place.

It is the Tri-City Area. Third one is Schenectady (possibly misspelled).

Bob is correct, and yes, I used to live about 75 minutes from Troy, where “The Joe” is, so we’d go to a handful of games each summer, circa 2010-14. They usually made the playoffs too, so we got to experience some of those games.

CWS of course kicks off this weekend. As far as Astros' draft picks, senior RHP Brett Daniels (17th-rounder) works out of the pen for UNC as they face off against Oregon State on Saturday afternoon. Senior righties J.P. France (14th-round pick) and Jacob Billingsley (32nd-rounder) take the hill for Miss. State. The Bulldogs face Washington Saturday night. France is a reliever while Billingsley is in their rotation.

By the way, if anyone wants to see some of the new draft picks with me at either Brooklyn or Staten Island, shoot me an message.  The Valley Cats play in Staten Island June 24-26.  I will be attending at least two of these games. 
Boom!

I'm rusty.

Just for clarification it was Jacob Meyers who was recently promoted.  Jake Adams had been promoted a couple of weeks ago.
