Brady Aiken and Astros agree on $6.5 million signing bonus
It only took two days for the Houston Astros to ink their number one draft pick, Brady Aiken. The 17-year-old phenom pitcher just became a rich man Saturday signing a 6.5 million contract tying Jameson Taillon for the largest signing bonus ever given to a high school pitcher. Aiken topped off his senior year with a 1.06 ERA, 111 strikeouts in 59 2/3 innings for Cathedral Catholic High which is in San Diego. Though the agreement is verbal both sides have until July 18th to finalize a deal.
