    Right-hander J.T. Ginn says he will not sign with the Los Angeles Dodgers and will instead attend Mississippi State.

    The 19-year-old from Brandon High School in Mississippi was selected with the 30th overall pick in last month’s amateur draft [url=http://www.bengalscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-darqueze-dennard-jersey]Darqueze Dennard Jersey[/url] , which has a slot value of $2,275,800.

    Ginn posted on Instagram , ”I had a lot to think about over the last month” and added ”after giving it a lot of thought I decided to pursue my lifelong dream of playing college baseball for the Mississippi State Bulldogs!!!”

    The deadline for draft picks to sign, unless they have exhausted college eligibility, is 5 p.m. Eastern Friday. Two other first-round selections remained without agreements: right-hander Carter Stewart (selected eighth by Atlanta) and shortstop Matt McLain (25th by Arizona).

    Shortstop Brice Turang, taken 21st by Milwaukee, agreed to a $3,411,100 signing bonus, $397 [url=http://www.bengalscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-dre-kirkpatrick-jersey]Dre Kirkpatrick Jersey[/url] ,500 above his slot value.



    This story has been corrected to show that Turang’s first name is Brice, not Bruce.



    Brandon Nimmo began the game with an inside-the-park home run. Turned out he was just getting started.

    Nimmo homered twice during a huge night at the plate, and the New York Mets finally gave Jacob deGrom some run support Monday in a 12-2 victory over the Colorado Rockies.

    ”It took a funny bounce (off the wall), so something was working my way for that first at-bat,” Nimmo said. ”That was pretty cool and a great way to start it off. Just kind of loosened things up after that.”

    Wilmer Flores and Devin Mesoraco also went deep for New York, which won its third straight following a prolonged slide. Nimmo had four hits and set a career high with four RBIs – one night after his go-ahead, two-run homer with two outs in the ninth inning staved off defeat for the Mets and rallied them to a win at Arizona.
