Orioles To Sign Kevin Gausman

By Ben Nicholson-Smith [July 13, 2012 at 4:10pm CST]

The Orioles have agreed to sign first round selection Kevin Gausman, the pitcher reports (on Twitter). MLB recommended a bonus of $4.2MM for the fourth overall pick and Gausman's bonus is expected to fall in that range, Jon Paul Morosi reported today.

Gausman has two premium pitches including a fastball that sits 94-96 mph and a plus change-up, according to Baseball America. The Louisiana State right-hander also throws a curve and a slider.


FINALLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Keith Law is reporting the bonus was 4.32MM, so they gave him slot and their surplus from the first ten picks. I wonder what that means for Vasquez?

Welcome aboard! I would rather have had Giolito but you make a fine runner-up. :P
