San Diego and No. 7 overall pick Max Fried have agreed to a $3 million deal that’s the exact slot amount for the pick.
Fried, a high school left-hander from California, ranked seventh on Baseball America‘s list of the top players in the class and ESPN.com rated him fifth, behind only Byron Buxon, Carlos Correa, Kevin Gausman, and Mark Appel.
He was the first high school pitcher chosen, although a healthy Lucas Giolito may have changed that.
