Rangers sign 3rd round selection Patrick Cantwell from Stony Brook

By Evan Grant,

SAN DIEGO- With the underdog Stony Brook Seawolves eliminated from the College World Series, it did not take long for C Patrick Cantwell, the Rangers third round selection in the draft to reach an agreement with the team.
Cantwell, a 22-year-old senior, hit .290 for Stony Brook in 2012.
His signing means the Rangers have reached agreement with each of their first 16 picks through the 13th round. The two highest unsigned picks are football prospects OF Kwinton Smith and RHP-OF Jameis Winston, who have signed football letters of intent with South Carolina and Florida State respectively.
The Rangers have now signed 27 of their 43 selections in the draft.
