Orioles To Sign Second-Rounder Chance Sisco

The Orioles have agreed to terms with second-round draft pick Chance Sisco, Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun reports (via Twitter).  The deal will become official if Sisco passes a physical on Monday.  Terms of the contract weren't released, though the draft slot value (as listed by Baseball America) for the 61st overall pick is $913.3K.

Cisco is a left-handed hitting high school catcher who just began playing behind the plate last season, according to Connolly.  Cisco's scouting report on MLB.com describes the 6'2", 193-pounder as having "an average arm and…good hands," and as a former shortstop switching to catcher, Cisco "should develop into a solid all-around defender" as he learns his new position.
