MLB Draft 2013: Sixth-round pick Jacob Nottingham to sign with Astros

Another reported signing, though this report comes from one of TCB's own. Sean Feist took to Twitter last night to say that Jacob Nottingham, the Astros sixth-round pick out of Redlands HS in California, was signing with the club:

Nottingham was easily the favorite player in the first 10 picks of our draft experts here (outside of Mark Appel), as he combines that high upside, big-time power and young age that prospect hounds love so much. Here's what they had to say about him when he was drafted:

If you want some upside and some projection, this kid has it. He's definitely a project, but the upside definitely there. At first look, he looks like a right fielder as he stands 6-3 and is very lean, yet strong at 200 pounds. He then steps into the batters box and has a tall stance and you see a guy with power. Then, you see him put on catcher's gear and his defensive value shoots up!
