Local reports say that former Virginia pitcher Jacob Thompson is set to sign with the Atlanta Braves and report to the club's rookie league team in his hometown of Danville.
Thompson's 27 wins are the most in Virginia history, and his 248 strikeouts rank 4th on the all-time list. He was the Braves 5th round pick in this year's major league baseball draft and is the last Cavalier from this year's draft class to agree to a contract.
