MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota Twins announced Wednesday that they have signed first-round pick Kohl Stewart, the fourth overall pick in this month's Major League Baseball Draft. According to Jim Callis of Baseball America, the Twins signed Stewart for 4,544,400, which was right around the slot value for the fourth pick. Stewart, a right-handed pitcher from St. Piux X (Texas) High School, was the first prep player take in the draft. He was 5-1 with a 0.18 ERA in 40 innings this season, adding 59 strikeouts and 16 walks. While Stewart also had a scholarship to play football at Texas A&M, the Twins were confident that Stewart would choose baseball over football. Minnesota also announced they've signed 22 additional draft picks, including six other draftees from the first 10 rounds. Among them is third-round pick Stuart Turner, a catcher from Ole Miss, and left-hander Stephen Gonsalves, the Twins' fourth-round pick out of Cathedral Catholic (Calif.) High School. Also of note of the 23 players the Twins have signed is 30th-round pick Tanner Vavra, whose father, Joe, is Minnesota's third-base coach. Twenty-one of the Twins' first 25 picks have now signed, with the exception of second-round pick Ryan Eades out of LSU; fifth-round pick Aaron Slegers, a right-hander from Indiana University; eight-round pick Dustin DeMuth of Indiana; and 16th-round pick Brandon Bixler from Florida Gulf Coast University.
