Astros Agree To Deal With Mike Foltynewicz

The Astros have reached an agreement with first round pick Mike Foltynewicz on a deal that includes a $1.3MM signing bonus, reports MLB.com's Brian McTaggart.

The 19-year-old Foltynewicz was the 19th overall pick in Monday's draft after posting a 0.38 ERA with 128 strikeouts in 72.2 innings for Minooka Community High School near Chicago this spring. MLB.com's scouting report says the 6-foot-4, 190 lb. righty can run his fastball up to 96 mph with a sinking changeup and a slurvy breaking ball. 

Houston can now focus on signing Delino DeShields Jr. and Michael Kvasnicka, their other two first round picks. Both have indicated that they expect to sign.
