The deadline to sign players from last month’s MLB Draft was this evening at 5 p.m., and the Cleveland Indians announced a few high-profile signings in the final day. Although final-day signings were way down this year compared to the past (hat tip to Baseball America’s Jim Callis), three new Indians joined the organization in the last 24 hours.

Last night, the Tribe reached an $765K agreement with fourth-rounder OF D’Vone McClure, one of the highest-potential guys they picked in the draft. The Arkansas high school product has good speed, a positive bat and projects to make a big impact down the road. Also yesterday, the team signed RHP Caleb Hamrick for $185K. Hamrick, an eight-round pick, is a Texas high school product who has a low-90s fastball and a possible plus-slider.

The last guy to sign today was OF Logan Vick, the team’s 11th-rounder out of Baylor. He was first-team All-Big 12 this year, and the switch-hitter projects to have good speed and contact ability, but not much power. He reportedly signed for $125K. Overall, that means that Cleveland was able to sign all of its first 16 picks, 22 of its first 24, and 26 out of 40 overall.
