Skole, Deglan, Lipka all locked up
It's early, but clubs are getting their top picks under contract, including first-round selections Jake Skole and Kellin Deglan of the Texas Rangers. Skole, an outfielder from Blessed Trinity High School in Georgia, was the No. 15 overall pick and landed a $1.557 million signing bonus. Deglan received $1 million as the No. 22 pick. Both players will report to the club's rookie league club in Surprise, Ariz.
Good info after the jump, especially if you're a BoSox fan. There's some Cape Cod League news, too. If you're interested in prospects and the economics of baseball, this is a worthwhile read.
