Apparently, Brady Aiken has agreed to terms

(via Jim Callis, on the MLB Network during the draft)

Aiken has apparently agreed to a $6.5M contract.  Largest bonus ever for a high school pitcher.

The other important figure is that this bonus is approximately $1.3 million under slot (although $1.4 million was the under-slot figure quoted on the MLB network).

Correction - if he signed for 6.5 million, it would be 1.4 million under slot.  My bad.
