The Mets reached an agreement with 24th-round pick Erik Goeddel on an over-slot deal, MLBTR has learned. A source close to Major League Baseball indicated that Goeddel agreed to a contract believed to be worth just under $500K. Goeddel, a righty out of UCLA, received third-round money. He's one of the first over-slot signings, which is surprising since he's a college junior rather than a prep player. Just before the draft, Goeddel had what Baseball America's Dave Perkin called an "eyebrow-raising outing" in front of scouts.
Reached by MLBTR, Goeddel's advisor Matt Sosnick denied an agreement is in place.
