Kevin Goldstein of Baseball Prospectus has a good story up about unannounced, over-slot draft signings waiting for MLB approval. Within this story is a note that the Indians will sign RHP Trey Haley (second-round pick) for about $1 million, and also go over slot to sign RHP Zach Putnam (5) and OF Tim Fedroff (7). Good news if true, but none of those signings will be as significant as some over-slot signings by Red Sox and Rangers -- who are close to signing some top prospects who plunged in the draft due to bonus demands. Goldstein reports a rumor that Red Sox close to signing their 20th round pick (Alex Meyer) for $2 million... wow.
