Chicago Cubs finalize deal with 3B Kris Byrant

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (Associated Press) -

The Chicago Cubs finalized their agreement with third baseman Kris Bryant, the No. 2 overall pick in last month's amateur draft.

Bryant will receive a signing bonus of $6,708,400, the slot value for the selection and the highest amount in the two years since spending restraints began under baseball's collective bargaining agreement.

The deal was announced Friday, a few hours before the deadline for draft picks to sign, other than players who have exhausted their college baseball eligibility.
