The Reds and 12th-round pick Kyle Waldrop have agreed to terms on a $500,000 bonus, the largest deal to date in the 2010 draft for a player drafted after the 10th round. Under MLB provisions for two-sport athletes, Cincinnati will spread the bonus over multiple years.
Waldrop starred in baseball and football (as a safety and wide receiver) at Riverdale High in Fort Myers, Fla. The 6-foot-3, 190-pounder has average or better tools across the board, standing out most with lightning bat speed that allows him to drive balls to all fields from the left side of the plate. An outfielder, he fits best in right field. He had committed to South Florida.
