Monday Morning Manager: July 16th, 2012

Welcome back to the Monday Morning Manager, we have a short update for you this week so lets dive right in!


- Scott Atchison joined Andrew Cashner as former Frogs currently on the major league DL last week, both suffering through some arm soreness/tightness. Atchison should be looking at just 15 days while Cashner is expected to be out until August or September.

- The 2012 MLB Draft signing day passed by on Friday with no news for TCU fans. TCU managed to get through the draft with only minimal casualties. Juniors Josh Elander, Kyle Von Tungeln, Kevin Allen and Kaleb Merck all signed as expected with their professional teams. Incoming Freshmen Austin Aune, Jake Thompson, Cody Eaves and Austin Fairchild also signed deals to turn pro.

While Aune and Thompson were expected signings (second round draft choices), Eaves and Fairchild were a little bit surprising. Eaves took the maximum non-penalty deal at $100k to join the Angels and Fairchild got a way above slot deal with the Royals ($350k+). Ultimately, while it would have been nice to have all four of these guys make it to campus, there is still plenty to be excited about for 2013.

- No update this week on summer league play for current Frogs, will try to get to that next week.
