Supplemental first-rounder Michael Fulmer Tweeted (via @MFulmer12) on June 23 that he had reached an agreement with the Mets. Nearly a month later, he officially signed with the team for $937,500.
That amount is more than any other deal outside of the first round so far, and in excess of the commissioner's office's $776,700 guideline for the 44th overall pick.
Fulmer was part of an outstanding crop of Oklahoma high school pitchers led by top-seven-overall picks Dylan Bundy (Orioles, No. 4) and Archie Bradley (Diamondbacks, No. 7). A product of Edmond's Deer Creek HS, Fulmer is a 6-foot-2, 200-pound righthander with a mid-90s fastball and a hard slider. He was a member of Arkansas' recruiting class.
