Oklahoma prep right-hander Michael Fulmer, the 44th overall pick in the draft, watched a Mets-Rangers game from the second row with father J.P. and the rest of his family last month.
One month after Oklahoma prep right-hander Michael Fulmer tweeted that he had agreed to terms with the Mets, the deal reportedly is official.

Fulmer signed for $937,500, which is $160,000 more the commissioner's office recommends for the 44th overall pick, Baseball America reports.

The Mets have yet to announce the signing of first-round pick Brandon Nimmo, a fellow University of Arkansas signee, although the outfielder is widely expected to eventually reach a deal. The deadline is Aug. 15.
Adam Rubin has covered the Mets since 2003. He's a graduate of Mepham High School on Long Island and the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. He joined ESPNNewYork after spending 10 years at the New York Daily News.
