To this point on Draft Deadline Week, we’ve refrained from speculation and only reported confirmed signings (or definitive non-signings, as the case may be). But with a little less than two hours before the deadline, we’re going to reveal the latest gossip we’re hearing on negotiations. Remember, this is gossip, not hard facts, and it comes from industry sources but not the clubs or agents involved.
The Royals reportedly have upped their offer to No. 2 overall pickÂ Mike Moustakas from MLB’s slot recommendation of $3.15 million to $4 million. Moustakas, advised by Scott Boras, appears to be seeking $7 million.
The Orioles reportedly have offered No. 5 choice Matt Wieters a major league contract worth slightly less than the guaranteed $8.5 million deal that No. 1 pick David Price got from the Devil Rays today. Wieters, also advised by Scott Boras,Â apparentlyÂ isÂ looking for more than $10 million.
