Angels sign 14 Draft picks, five of top 10

ANAHEIM -- The Angels have signed 14 of their 40 selections from last week's First-Year Player Draft, including five of their first 10 picks, but none of their first three.

First-round pick Sean Newcomb, a left-handed pitcher from the University of Hartford, and second-rounder Joe Gatto, a right-hander from St. Augustine Prep in New Jersey, are among those remaining unsigned. Newcomb was the 15th-overall selection, which has a slot value of $2,475,600. While Gatto, as the 53rd-overall selection, is slotted at $1,050,600.

The Angels selected 22 pitchers and 18 position players in the 2014 Draft. Thirty-seven of their picks were from colleges and three were in high school.
