I hear from an Arkansas source that 2nd Round Pick Brett Eibner signed with the Royals on Monday. Terms or the deal are unknown. Eibner has been seen with Royals officials including Dayton Moore and Mike Arbuckle at Arvest Ballpark in Springdale, Arkansas, the past several days.
I wouldn't be surprised if the deal was a bit overslot and thus will not be announced until the deadline is nearer. Eibner also sustained an arm injury and still may not be ready to play and so there is no rush for the Royals to make the deal public at this point. Eibner was a two way star at Arkansas but the Royals plan to make him their centerfielder of the future.
