Reds Sign Top Two Picks

5:12pm: MLB.com's Mark Sheldon says the deals for Leake and Boxberger aren't done yet. The players still have to take physicals, which could push the signings back to Monday.

3:09pm: According to Jim Callis of Baseball America, the Reds have agreed to terms with their top two picks from June's First-Year Player Draft.  Right-hander Mike Leake, taken eighth overall, signed for $2.27MM while right-hander Brad Boxberger, taken in the supplemental first round, signed for $857K.  Both bonuses exceed MLB's slot recommendations.
