Tanner Chleborad leaning toward signing with the Baltimore Orioles?

WSU right-handed pitcher Tanner Chleborad, a junior, appears as if he's probably going to be headed off to begin his professional career after being selected in the 16th round by the Baltimore Orioles on Saturday.

"I'm extremely excited to have an opportunity to play at the next level," Chleborad said in a statement through WSU. "There is still some negotiating to do, but I am eager to see how the process plays out."

That sounds an awful lot like "I'm signing if they're in the ballpark of a reasonable offer." Outfielder Yale Rosen already has announced his intention to turn pro, while third baseman Nick Tanielu sounds less sure.
