Draft pick Krook failed recent physical

MIAMI -- More details are surfacing regarding Matt Krook's decision to pitch for the University of Oregon rather than sign with the Marlins.

A source confirmed reports that the left-hander from St. Ignatius High School in San Francisco recently failed his physical. The Marlins chose Krook 35th overall in the 2013 First-Year Player Draft.

The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported the two sides had agreed to terms, and Krook declined a reduced offer. And the Miami Herald added that Krook is hampered by a left shoulder ailment.

Technically, Krook could change his mind and either accept the reduced offer or continue negotiations. Teams have until July 12 to sign their Draft picks. So, the southpaw has until then to reconsider. However, a source added that there is "no chance" of that happening.

The Marlins continue to negotiate with their first-round pick, third baseman Colin Moran from the University of North Carolina.

Miami is confident that they will agree to terms with Moran, the sixth pick overall in the Draft.

Krook was a competitive-balance Round A selection that the Marlins acquired from the Pirates as part of a trade last July. Miami sent Gaby Sanchez to Pittsburgh for Gorkys Hernandez and the pick.
