Pitcher Meyer gets $6.7 million signing bonus from Marlins
Right-hander Max Meyer has agreed to a $6.7 million signing bonus as part of a minor league contract to join the Miami Marlins, and he’ll take part in training camp starting Friday.
The deal was for less than his slot value of $7,221,200 as the No. 3 overall pick in last month’s amateur draft.
Meyer had a 2.07 career ERA at the University of Minnesota. He’s in the Marlins’ 60-man player pool and could crack their rotation at some point this year.
