The Cubs have agreed to terms with supplemental first-rounder Paul Blackburn on a $911,700 bonus, matching the assigned value for his No. 56 slot.
A righthander from Heritage HS in Brentwood, Calif., Blackburn is athletic and projectable. He throws a 90-94 mph fastball and backs it up with a curveball and changeup that both qualify as potential plus pitches. He had committed to Arizona State.
