The Marlins came to terms with their first round pick, first baseman Christian Yelich, as the deadline approached late last night MLB.com reports.
The high schooler projects as an outfielder and even signed a letter of intent to play for the University of Miami if a deal was not reached. Currently, the California native is plays first base and his swing has drawn comparisons to Mark Grace. He has been projected to be more of a doubles hitter, compared to a Lyle Overbay, but is showing a bit more pop in his bat. Where he plays will still remain to be seen but he was signed with a $1.7M contract to play for the Fish.
