The Giants have signed Mississippi State righthander Chris Stratton, the 20th overall pick in the draft, for $1.85 million. He becomes the 12th of 31 first-rounders to sign, and his bonus matches the assigned value for his slot.
Stratton broke out as a prospect with a 17-strikeout game against Louisiana State in mid-March and kept rising up draft boards all spring. He pitches at 91-93 mph and touches 95 with his lively fastball, and he also has a plus slider and flashes an above-average curveball.
