Travieso Gets $2 Million From Reds

The Reds have signed first-rounder Nick Travieso, the draft's 14th overall choice, for $2 million.

A righthander from Archbishop McCarthy HS (Southwest Ranches, Fla.), Travieso consistently works at 91-95 mph with his fastball. He also has a hard slider and shows good feel for pitching.

The assigned value for pick No. 14 is $2,375,000.

With Travieso's signing, Cincinnati has landed all of its first 11 picks who aren't participating in the College World Series. UCLA outfielders Jeff Gelalich (supplemental first round) and Beau Amaral (seventh) and Arizona third baseman Seth Mejias-Brean (eighth) are chasing a national championship in Omaha.
