Clemson first baseman Ben Paulsen, the third round draft pick of the Colorado Rockies, rejected the team’s first contract offer according to his father, Clemson assistant coach Tom Riginos. “It was way below slot,” Reginos said. “He’s enrolling in summer school and will work camp. He’s not afraid to come back to school.” Riginos said seniors Matt Sanders, Ryan Hinson and Clinton McKinney have signed their contacts, but at this time he expects second baseman Mike Freeman to return to school. The one signee of concern is pitcher Madison Younginer, the seventh round pick of the Red Sox. Riginos said Younginer will probably go thr the summer before making a decision.
