White Sox general manager Rick Hahn repeatedly expressed confidence in his ability to get No. 3 overall pick Carlos Rodon signed despite the North Carolina State left-hander being a Scott Boras client and sure enough the two sides have reached an agreement.

Baseball America reports that Rodon will receive a $6.582 million signing bonus, which is the largest in White Sox history and well above the slot recommendation of $5.72 million. In other words, Boras got his client a bunch of extra money.

Coming into the season Rodon was widely viewed as the likely No. 1 pick, which had a slot recommendation of $7.9 million this season. He should move very quickly through the White Sox’s farm system, setting up a potential 2015 debut.

    Lord Boras will represent the most promising prospects. In return, he demands your first born. Praise be to Lord Boras, Supreme Dark Leader of the MLBPA.
