Alex Bregman Has Agreed to Terms

Chandler Rome broke the news this morning that the Astros top draft pick, Alex Bregman, agreed to terms and was in Houston to sign. Bregman's LSU team only recently ended their season in the College World Series.

Terms are unknown at this time, although Drellich is reporting that it's expected to be $6 million. The pick value for the #2 pick was $7,420,100. If that figure is accurate, that would bring the total savings to $2.3 million based on confirmed bonuses. Should leave plenty of room to bring in Daz Cameron for his asking price of $4 million. 

UPDATE: The signing was formally announced today by the Astros. Bregman will be assigned to Quad Cities. The bonus was $5.9 million, so the savings ended up at $2.4 I expect we will be seeing news of Cameron formally agreeing to terms soon.
