Please understand the "signed/unsigned" designations are unofficial and simply "to the best of my knowledge."   You can find a more thorough and official listing at Baseball America. Those that were signed before yesterday can be found on the rosters of either the GCL Mets, the Kingsport Mets, the Brooklyn Cyclones or the Savannah Sand Gnats.Links that were initially found around draft day in June to information about many but not all of these players can be accessed at Picks 1-30 and Picks 31 -50.
