The Dodgers have agreed to terms with first-round pick Corey Seager. He'll receive a $2.35 million bonus in a deal expected to be finalized today.
Seager was one of the best high school bats available in this year's draft. He possesses an easy lefthanded swing and power to all fields. A shortstop at Northwest Cabarrus HS (Concord, N.C.), he'll probably move to third base as a pro. The younger brother of Mariners starting third baseman Kyle Seager, Corey had been committed to South Carolina.
Seager's bonus exceeded the assigned value for his No. 18 slot by $400,000 and leaves the Dodgers $98,500 over budget for their signed picks in the first 10 rounds. Los Angeles has one unsigned player remaining in those rounds: Florida lefthander Paco Rodriguez, its second-rounder.
