No movement on talks with top Draft pick
BALTIMORE -- It's been rather quiet of late with news regarding the Reds' first-round Draft pick, pitcher Robert Stephenson.

Stephenson was the 27th overall selection in the 2011 First-Year Player Draft out of Alhambra High School in Martinez, Calif. The deadline to sign all picks is Aug. 15. When might the Reds ink Stephenson? "Probably Aug. 13," Reds general manager Walt Jocketty joked.

The Reds' past few first-round picks were all signed right at or near the deadline.

"[Stephenson] came out to the ballpark when we were in San Francisco," Jocketty said. "We've had very little discussions with him at this point. I don't know if we will for a while."
