15th-round pick Evans sign

8/15/2011

Shortstop Phillip Evans, the Mets' 15th-round pick out of La Costa Canyon (Calif.) High School, has signed for $650,000.

That’s roughly supplemental first-round money -- about 55th overall pick -- and the most ever paid by the Mets below second round.

Evans had committed to San Diego State.
