Moyer's son unsure whether he'll sign

PHILADELPHIA -- The Twins' 22nd-round selection in the First-Year Player Draft, shortstop Dillon Moyer, was noncommittal about whether or not he would sign with the club, but said he was planning to meet with team officials tomorrow. Dillon is the son of Phillies left-hander Jamie Moyer.

The 6-foot-1 shortstop from IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla., committed to University of California-Irvine. He is a frequent presence in the Phillies clubhouse, though on Friday he spoke on the steps of the visiting Twins' dugout.

"I was really honored," Moyer said of being drafted. "Out of high school it was pretty cool. The Twins are obviously a great organization, I've only heard good things about them."

Moyer said his parents have not pressured him either way about his decision. He hit .351 with 16 runs and seven stolen bases in his senior season for IMG this season.

"I didn't get the pitching genes," Moyer joked. When asked how surreal it is to be negotiating for his own playing career, Moyer shrugged.

"I've been around it my whole life, so it's natural for me," he said.
