Forsyth Central graduate Michael Branigan will forgo his baseball scholarship at Belmont University to sign with the Arizona Diamondbacks, who drafted the Bulldog catcher with the 660th overall pick in the 22nd round of the 2014 MLB First-Year Player Draft on Saturday.

Branigan will report to Scottsdale on Thursday, at which point he will sign his contract and join the Diamondbacks' rookie ball affiliate in the Arizona League. The two sides are still negotiating terms of the deal.

The D-backs had been in contact with Branigan since Central's senior night on April 23 and were the only organization to express interest in the 5-foot-10 catcher.

Branigan hit .395 this season to go along with a .462 on-base percentage, 18 RBIs and 23 runs scored.
