NEW YORK -- An initial wave of Draft picks has signed with the Mets.

The team announced Wednesday that it has inked 16 of its 39 draftees, including third-round shortstop Milton Ramos out of American Heritage (Fla.) School, who signed for $750,000, about $100,000 more than the recommended bonus for his Draft slot.

The Mets also signed fourth-round third baseman Eudor Garcia, fifth-round right-hander Josh Prevost, sixth-round catcher Tyler Moore, seventh-round left-hander Brad Wieck, eighth-round first baseman Dash Winningham, 10th-round left-hander Kelly Secrest, 11th-round right-hander Connor Buchmann, 12th-round right-hander Alex Durham, 13th-round right-hander Erik Manoah, 14th-round catcher Darryl Knight, 17th-round left-hander David Roseboom, 19th-round right-hander Bryce Beeler, 22nd-round second baseman William Fulmer, 25th-round right-hander Nicco Blank and 27th-round right-hander Alex Palsha.

As for top pick Michael Conforto of Oregon State, general manager Sandy Alderson said on Tuesday that he does not anticipate any issues signing the outfielder.

"I don't expect it will take very long," Alderson said. "Days rather than weeks."
