Dodgers first - round pick J.T. Ginn, the No. 30 overall selection in last month’s draft, announced tonight As Jim Callis of MLB.com notes, he ’ ll be eligible to enter the draft again after his sophomore season Because the Dodgers won’t be signing Ginn, they’ll receive a compensatory pick at No. 31

The Dodgers have announced the signing of first - round Draft pick Kody Hoese. He 's one of 34 college players the Dodgers selected among their 41 picks this year, along with North Carolina second baseman Michael Busch, drafted a few picks later after Hoese at 31st overall.

​On June 4, the Los Angeles Dodgers used the 30th pick in the MLB Draft to select J.T. Ginn, a high school pitcher out of Brandon, Mississippi.

But Ginn just turned down a potential $2,275,800 signing bonus and will play baseball for Mississippi State instead.

Obviously, a college education is important and a great thing to have, but when you go in the first round in the MLB Draft, it's a shocker any time someone in that situation doesn't sign on the dotted line.

Along the way, he caught the eye of Cal head coach Jeff Tedford, who established his reputation teaching eventual first - round NFL draft picks Trent Dilfer, Akili Smith

He was a stud, and his well-rounded numbers didn't do him enough justice. I think he becomes a surprisingly high first round pick .

The signing bonuses for ​first-round picks are tough to turn down.

Ginn was seen by scouts as an athlete on the mound and a competitor at the plate. His 16 home runs last year was second nationally among high schoolers behind Los Angeles Angels prospect ​Jo Adell

However, his fastball sits at 95-97 miles per hour and he has a wipeout slider to complement it, making him more desirable as a pitcher.

Hopefully the Dodgers will have another chance to bring him on board.
