The Giants have added one of the draft's fastest players in Cal State Fullerton outfielder Gary Brown, signing their first-round pick for a confirmed $1.45 signing bonus, according to multiple sources. The Boras Corporation client had a big junior season for the Titans cut short by a broken finger on his left hand, batting .438/.485/.695 with 32 stolen bases in 37 attempts.
Brown is an aggressive hitter with 80 speed on the 20-80 scouting scale. He improved his draft stock significantly this spring by showing top-shelf defense in center fielder after bouncing between second base, third base and left field in his first two seasons. He has quick hands at the plate and surprising pop.
Earlier in the evening, the Giants signed Virginia outfielder Jarrett Parker, their second-round pick and another center fielder, for a $700,000 bonus. While the Giants still have some unsigned players left, they have now signed all their picks through round 14 and are likely done with any major draft-pick signings.
