The Indians have announced two more above-slot signings. Central Heights High (Nacogdoches, Texas) righthander Trey Haley signed for $1.25 million in the second round, the highest bonus thus far in his round this year. Haley’s bonus exceeded the $1.1 million Cleveland gave its first-rounder, Lonnie Chisenhall.
The Indians also landed Picayune (Miss.) Memorial High lefthander T.J. House for $750,000 in the 16th round. That’s the second-highest bonus for a second-day pick this year, after the $900,000 the Pirates gave to New Jersey prep righthander Quinton Miller.
Haley had committed to Rice, while House had been set to attend Tulane.
Previously, Cleveland had handed out over-slot bonuses to fifth-rounder Zach Putnam ($600,000), seventh-rounder Tim Fedroff ($725,000) and 22nd-rounder Bryce Stowell ($725,000).
