The Phillies have signed 11th-round pick Tyler Greene for $375,000, the highest bonus outside of the first three rounds thus far in the 2011 draft. His bonus is equivalent to third-round money.
A shortstop from West Boca Raton (Fla.) HS, Greene has impressive speed and athleticism, though he has been inconsistent at the plate and in the field. His brother Chase is an outfielder in the Mets system. Tyler had committed to Georgia.
