The Cardinals agreed to terms with second-round pick Carson Kelly on a $1.6 million bonus on Thursday, pending a physical on Friday. His bonus exceeds the assigned value for his pick ($574,300 at No. 86) by more than $1 million, the largest difference thus far in the 2012 draft.
A two-way star at Westview HS in Portland, Ore., Kelly has more upside as a third baseman with a sound swing and promising power potential. As a righthanded pitcher, he displays a 90-92 mph fastball. He had committed to Oregon.
