8:59pm: The Giants have signed first round pick Chris Stratton according to the MLB Draft Twitter feed. The team confirmed the signing in a press release. He was the 20th overall selection, which carries a slot value of $1.85MM according to Baseball America.

Stratton, 22, fell just short of qualifying as a draft-eligible sophomore for last summer's draft. Baseball America says the right-hander from Mississippi State can run his fastball up to 95 while mixing in both a slider and curveball.
