Mets Agree With 24th-Rounder To Over-Slot Deal

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.

Pretty surprised by this. It seemed like everyone expected him to go back to UCLA where he’d be a starter next year. Nice signing by the Mets.

Did Wilpon sell the Mets? WTF? Isn’t he afraid of Bud Selig shooting him a dirty look at their bridge game?

Don’t much about the kid, except to recognize Mets obviously see something in him, beyond the stats.

What’s great news is that we are finally over-slotting, like Yanks and Sox!!!
