Brice Turang has agreed to terms with the #Brewers.

I have not seen what the bonus amount is yet, but it looks like the Brewers will indeed sign their #1 pick.

3:24 PM - 5 Jul 2018

Just to be clear, I said “agreed to terms” and not “signed.” Important difference. They might still be working on a physical, or just taking as much time as necessary for a life-altering decision.

Turang just tweeted a pic of him putting pen to paper so it looks like it's official! Will be interesting to see what the $ are and if we can snag any more later round picks before the deadline.

From the photos it looks like the signing took place in Milwaukee. I assume Turang will do the whole batting practice and formal announcement tomorrow.

MILWAUKEE -- The Brewers officially signed first-round Draft pick shortstop Brice Turang on Thursday night.

The two sides had until 4 p.m. CT Friday to come to terms on a contract.

Turang, an LSU commit and California native, will be trading the chance to play college baseball to join the Brewers' organization.

"This was a tough decision," Turang said in a tweet. "It was an honor to be a part of the 2018 Draft, and I appreciate the Brewers for taking their chance on me!"

Milwaukee used the 21st overall pick of the 2018 MLB Draft to select Turang. He was the last unsigned top-10 pick for the Brewers.

Turang's pick value was $3,013,600, according to MLB.com, and the Brewers were able to give him as much as $3,566,195 without losing a future first-rounder. According to MLB.com's Jim Callis, "Turang entered last summer as a candidate to go No. 1 overall, but fell to No. 21 because of a so-so spring rather than unsignability."

Correction, it is being reported by Brad Ford that Brice Turang signed the contract in Arizona (Link).

Love Jim's work, but "efforting" is not a word.

Doesn't leave a lot left over to sign anyone remaining. Maybe one flyer or two today, but I think they are pretty much done.

The Brewers have a little over $70,000 left by my math. If that's accurate, I would fully expect them to use most of it today. Since the first $125,000 is exempt from the bonus pool after round 10, they can offer one of the remaining guys over $195,000.

If you could pick one guy, who would you offer that single deal to?

My guess is that they sign Matulovich, perhaps Baran depending on what the holdup is, and then maybe one of Sparks/Pacheco/Dillard/Hylton.
