If the PTBNL is a Royals' 2011 Draft Pick, Part 2

A few weeks ago, I posted information about the players the Royals picked in the first 20 rounds of last years' draft.    I felt this information was significant as it is a strong possibility that the PTBNL in the Astros/Royals trade from Spring Training could come from this group of players.

Today, while listening to the OKC game, I learned that a player cannot be traded until one year after he SIGNS, not one year after he is drafted.  Based on that new knowledge, I think it is worthwhile to provide you with the signing dates of the Royals' draftees mentioned in the previous post.  If you have your heart set on Brian Brickhouse, it looks like you will have to wait until August.
