After two months of modest signings, teams have begun awarding some historically big bonuses this week. The agent for Orioles 22rd round selection Cameron Bryan Coffey says his client agreed to sign a deal worth $990k, according to Mark Berman of My FOX in Houston. That's more than what first rounders such as Brett Jackson and Tim Wheeler received.
Coffey, a lefty who is recovering from Tommy John surgery, has been clocked in the mid 90s. Jim Callis of Baseball America, who was right on this signing, calls Coffey "projectable" and notes that his fastball velocity jumped significantly this year.
