The Baltimore Sun reports that the Orioles are close to signing first-round pick LHP Brian Matusz.

Matusz is scheduled to take a physical Thursday in Baltimore, which the newspaper notes could be a precursor to the fourth overall pick signing a deal. The deadline to sign draft picks is midnight Friday.

I sure hope so. Because if they don't sign him that means they wouldn't get jack back right? But a lot of the top first round guys are unsigned right now. Personally I think their contracts should be incentive loaded. That's a lot of dough for a guy who has never pitched in the majors. But oh well these teams will figure out something.

This would be nice for them. He's a very good young prospect who I think will make a very good pitcher in the next few years in the major leagues. I think that this was their main concentration since they drafted him. Nice job and hopefully they get a deal done soon.
