Cardinals Sign Michael Wacha

The Cardinals officially signed first-round draft pick Michael Wacha to a contract today.  Terms weren't announced, but Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com reported (on Twitter) that Wacha received a $1.9MM bonus, which matches MLB's recommendation for the 19th overall draft selection.  Wacha himself tweeted that he was flying to St. Louis for his physical on Wednesday. 

The Texas A&M right-hander was touted by Baseball America as one of the year's top draft-eligible college pitchers. Wacha's repertoire includes the best changeup in the draft and a fastball that sits in the 90-93 mph range, according to the publication.
