This is the place to keep track of all signings, bonus information, pool spending, and media regarding all 40 2015 Draftees. I’ll accept any help you can provide as reports surface through articles from local, national, or social media. Please post any links you have, or if it’s a tweet, just post the text or however you like. I would ask only that you post any new information as a new comment so it appears at the bottom and makes it easier to find amongst what’s likely to be a pretty large post with possibly hundreds of comments. If you have something you want to draw my attention to and you don’t think it can wait until I get back on and check this page, you can always tweet at me @jimpeyton19. I’ll date/time stamp notes as I add them below. A special “Thanks” to Brad. I stole most of this from his 2014 Draft Tracker. Link to the 2015 Draft Tracker. The most recent updates will be above the fold, older updates will move below.

Williams graduated on the 18th. The Phillies also cannot sign a player still active in the NCAA season. Laird’s LSU team was eliminated on the 18th, Thomas’ Florida team plays an elimination game today. Lauria has decided to take another direction in his career. Nice story. Read it here.
