Correa receives $4.8m bonus

Unbelievable. Not only did the Astros sign their #1 overall pick in the same week as he was drafted, but the reported signing bonus (so discovered by Baseball America) is $4.8m - or less than half of the bonus received by 2010 #1 overall pick, Bryce Harper - or, if you're still doing figures - $2.4m less than the recommended slot for the #1 overall pick of $7.2m.

Incredible news on would could be a historic draft for the Astros.
