Rockies sign Peter Tago…other signings
Just got the release via email — the Rockies have signed high school right-hander Peter Tago, the No. 47 overall pick in the Draft, taken in the supplemental first round. No word yet on the bonus, but it’s likely to be over-slot. Here’s his Draft Report.
The Indians did have to go well over-slot to sign local high school catcher Alex Lavisky, their eighth rounder. It’s confirmed that he received a $1 million bonus. Hopefully, they got a little bit of a hometown discount, as Lavisky is a St. Edward High School product from nearby Lakewood, Ohio.
The reports that the Dodgers had signed 11th-rounder Joc Pederson aren’t quite, 100 percent right. It’s not official until the NoCal product passes his physical. Assuming that goes well, the reports are accurate that he’ll sign for $600,000.
