NEW YORK -- Major League Baseball and its players' union are moving back the deadline for amateur draft picks to sign by one day to Aug. 16.

The change was made because Aug. 15 falls on a weekend. A similar shift was made last year.

The deadline applies only to draft picks with remaining college eligibility.
