Blake Lillis update

Lillis is a LHP who is one of the two Arkansas signees still in negotiations with MLB teams. He was drafted in the 25th round by the Brewers.

I was told his signing a pro contract would be highly dependent on whether the Brewers were able to sign Chad McClanahan, a third baseman from Phoenix who was drafted in the 11th round.

McClanahan signed over the weekend for a reported $1.2 million - or about 10 times slot value. So the prospects look good for Lillis to make it to campus unless he takes less money than he indicated he would.

As expected, he’ll play for the Razorbacks next year: … -arkansas/
