Marlins Ink First-Round Pick

According to Jim Callis of Baseball America, the Marlins have agreed to terms with first-round pick Chad James.  The young left-hander, taken 18th overall in June, was handed a $1.7MM signing bonus.  He boasts a high-velocity fastball and promising curve, but is just 18 years of age and is likely to spend several seasons navigating the Marlins' farm system.
