Twins sign two more Draft picks

MINNEAPOLIS -- The Twins announced Wednesday the signing of two more Draft picks, including second-round selection Billy Bullock.

Bullock, a 6-foot-6 right-handed pitcher from the University of Florida, was taken by the Twins 70th overall in the 2009 First-Year Player Draft. He was one of four pitchers selected by Minnesota on the first day.

Also signing Wednesday was Nick Tindall, a high school catcher from O'Fallon Township (Ill.). Tindall was Minnesota's 17th-round pick, taken 522nd overall.

With Bullock and Tindall signed, the Twins have now inked nine of their Draft choices. Bullock has been assigned to Elizabethton of the Appalachian League, while Tindall was assigned to the Rookie-level Gulf Coast League Twins.

Other Draft picks that have signed include infielder Derek McCallum (University of Minnesota), catcher Tobias Streich (West Virginia), left-handed pitcher Tony Davis (Florida), right-handed pitcher Dakota Watts (Cal State Stanislaus), pitcher Kane Holbrooks (Texas State), catcher Stewart Monroe (Florida) and catcher Trayvone Johnson.

The Twins also signed undrafted free agent Brian Bistagne this week. Bistagne was a shortstop at Lee University in Tennessee. He hit .364 in his senior season with the Flames.
