The Arizona Diamondbacks have reportedly signed another one of their draft picks as the signing deadline looms closer.

According to’s Jim Callis, the team has signed No. 75 overall pick Arkansas outfielder Dominic Fletcher to a deal worth $700k, less than the pick’s slot value.

Fletcher hit .317 in 64 games played his junior year with 11 home runs and an OPS of .922.

He was honored this season with a Second Team All-SEC selection and made All-SEC Defensive Team for the second consecutive year.

His brother, David Fletcher, currently plays for the Los Angeles Angels after being drafted in the sixth round in 2015.

Fletcher was one of the seven draft picks the D-backs selected in the first two rounds. Of those seven picks, six have signed.

The only player who hasn’t signed is Michigan pitcher Tommy Henry who just pitched in the College World Series.

The team has signed 28 of their 45 selections and have until the July 12th deadline to sign their draft picks.
