More overslot signings

Jacob Turner signs a unique contract with a $4.7 mil bonus payable over 6 years with a guarantee of $5.5 million. He could push it to $7 million depending on how quick he makes it to the show. This deal is a record for a high schooler. Wow.

He is not the only Jake to sign as Jake Marisnick signed with Toronto for $1 million. He has five tool potential and is a great athlete. To me, he was a supplemental talent so the bonus was fair.

Boston signed Kendall Volz for $550k. If he gets back to the level he was at, he will be a stud starter and if not, he will still be a solid RP.

Matt Helm was a surprising sign. The D'backs signed a lot of really good HS hitters in this draft.
They will be fun to watch as most of them should move up the ladder at about the same pace.

The Brewers also signed Scooter Gennett for $260k. I expected him to go to college but it looks like the Brewers get a hard nosed middle infielder at a good price.

Andy Oliver signed for $1.495 and the Padres have announced the signing of Donovan Tate. I would guess about $6.25 mil.

Zach Dotson is a 13th rder and the signed him for $500k. He could be a good #3 pitcher.
