Cards dispute report they've signed top pick
ST. LOUIS -- Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak disputed a report on Wednesday that the club has agreed to a deal with first-round Draft pick Kolten Wong. However, he acknowledged that negotiations continue with the second baseman, and expressed optimism that a contract will be agreed to prior to the Aug. 15 deadline.

KITV in Honolulu reported that a deal has been reached and that Wong will report to Class A Quad Cities, and that Wong will receive a bonus "between $1 million and $1.5 million." Wong was the 22nd pick in the First-Year Player Draft, selected out of the University of Hawaii.

"It's not true," Mozeliak said when asked about the report. "I know we're in discussions, but nothing's been agreed upon or signed to my knowledge."

However, the club did confirm that sixth-round pick Adam Ehrlich has agreed to a deal. Ehrlich is a catcher, taken out of a California high school.
