LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers on Wednesday announced the official signing of right-handed pitcher Christian Baranik out of Louisiana-Lafayette, the team's 33rd-round pick in the 2014 MLB Draft.

The Dodgers also confirmed the signing of seventh-round selection Trevor Oaks out of Cal Baptist, a signing that was reported last week.

Baranik was 11-2 with a 3.17 ERA in 17 starts as a junior in 2014, with 74 strikeouts and 27 walks in 106 innings, and was named the Sun Belt Pitcher of the Year. He was the No. 2 starter on the No. 1 team in the country, one that was upset by Ole Miss in the Super Regionals.

Baranik tweeted this five days ago.

The Dodgers, who signed first-round pick Grant Holmes on Tuesday for a reported $2.5 million bonus, have signed 25 of their 40 draft picks, including 18 of their top 22 selections. The only top-10 pick their haven't yet signed is catcher Hunter Redman, their eighth-round pick out of Texas Tech. Redman's season just ended on Tuesday.

One draft pick who won't sign with the Dodgers is 19th-round pick Gary Cornish, a 19th-round pick out of Palomar College in San Diego. The right-handed pitcher tweeted that he would play one more year of college baseball for the University of San Diego.

The deadline to sign draft picks is July 18.
