No. 1 is done
I refuse to use some kind of Price play on words…
But David Price has signed with the Tampa Bay Devil Rays. The details were figured out by around 5 p.m. ET. Here are the terms for the No. 1 overall pick:
It’s a Major League deal that covers six years (2007-2012) and a total package of $11.25 million. The signing bonus is $5.6 million. Within the contract are minor league salaries that add up to $2.9 million and Major League salaries dding up to $5.65 million. A total of $8.5 million (the bonus plus the minor leaugue salaries) are guaranteed.
That only leaves No. 2 pick Mike Moustakas, No. 3 Josh Vitters, No. 5 pick Matt Wieters, No. 9 Jarrod Parker and No. 12 Matt Dominguez (I apologize for the earlier oversight) as unsigned of the top 30 picks.
