Per Multiple reports, the Cubs sign first round pick Bryant

Bryant one

The deadline for signing draft picks is this Friday, well the Cubs got their number one priority taken care of today.  Per multiple reports from Jim Callis, Peter Gammons, and Paul Sullivan the Cubs have agreed to terms with Kris Bryant for full slot, meaning $6.7M.  It seemed like the Cubs would be getting Bryant signed all along, he is a Boras client so I’m not surprised it took this long.  The money is a record in the slot era, but again, Bryant got slot so it’s not like the Cubs went over, but some were hoping he would go for under slot.  Expect the Cubs to make it official shortly then we get to see where Bryant will start his Cubs career, wouldn’t be shocked to see him start at High A Daytona right off the bat.
