It wasn’t expected to take very long for the four USF senior baseball players to sign with the clubs that selected them in last week’s MLB draft, and it won’t.
Right-handed pitcher Randy Fontanez signed today with the New York Mets, right-handed pitcher Kevin Quackenbush and infielder Jonathan Koscso are undergiong physicals today with the San Diego Padres and Tampa Bay Rays, respectively, and expect to sign with their respective teams by this evening, and left-handed pitcher Junior Carlin will sign tomorrow with the Los Angeles Angels.
Carlin said he will begin his career with Angels’ rookie-league affiliate in the Arizona League before joining the Pioneer League’s Orem Owlz. As for the other three, they are still awaiting word from team officials for their exact destination, though each has an idea.
Fontanez said he’ll likely begin his career with the Brooklyn Cyclones, the Mets’ affiliate in the short-season New York-Penn League. Koscso also believes he’s headed to the New York-Penn League with the Rays’ affiliate, the Hudson Valley Renegades.
And Quackenbush said he’s headed to the Padres’ affiliate in either the Northwest League (Eugene Emeralds) or Midwest League (Fort Wayne Tincaps).
