Indians Grab Naquin For $1.75 Million

The Indians have agreed on a $1.75 million bonus with first-rounder Tyler Naquin, pending a physical.

A Texas A&M product, Naquin was one of the best pure hitters and had one of the strongest outfield arms in this year's draft. He was the second college position player selected in June, and he runs well enough that he may be able to move from right field (his position with the Aggies) to center.

The assigned value for Naquin's pick at No. 15 was $2.25 million.
