MLB Draft Deadline: Padres Fail To Sign Karsten Whitson

With so many other teams arriving at agreements with their unsigned draft picks at the deadline, the Padres have thrown everyone for a loop:

Folks, I'll need to eat a little crow here. The #Padres could not come to terms with the No. 9 overall pick Karsten Whitson. Details soon.
