Giants Sign Kyle Crick

The Giants have signed supplemental first round pick Kyle Crick, reports Jim Callis of Baseball America.  Crick, the 49th overall pick, signed a deal worth $900K, a healthy step up from MLB's $717.3K recommended slot price for the 49th pick. 

Crick, a right-hander from Sherman High School in Texas, "pitched consistently in the low 90s and touched 97 this spring, and he also flashes a plus curveball and slider," according to Callis.  Crick had committed to attend Texas Christian University this fall but instead decided to start his pro career at age 18. 

Between Crick and 29th-overall pick Joe Panik, the Giants have now signed both of their first round picks from the 2011 amateur draft.  Keep track of all the first and supplemental round selections on MLBTR's list of draft signings.
