NEW YORK -- First-round pick Michael Conforto officially will be a Met assuming he passes a physical, a source familiar with the process confirmed to ESPNNewYork.com.

The sides had agreed to the $2,970,800 salary, which MLB recommended for the 10th overall pick, weeks ago.

Conforto is the two-time Pac-12 Player of the Year.

He hit .345 with seven homers and 56 RBIs in 203 at-bats with Oregon State during his junior season and produced a .504 on-base percentage. He set a single-season school record with 55 walks.

Conforto is likely to be assigned to the Brooklyn Cyclones.
