Yankees sign first round pick Heathcott

Lane Meyer at NoMaas is reporting that the Yankees have signed first round draft pick Slade Heathcott. Meyer spoke to Heathcott directly and was told that the bonus he received exceeds $2 million.

After the Yankees failed to sign last year's first round pick Gerrit Cole, this is certainly good news.

For more on Mr. Heathcott, here is his scouting report.

Update - 11:45 a.m.: Jim Callis (via River Ave. Blues) is reporting Heathcott's bonus was almost double the slot money MLB recommends.
