Originally written June 08, 2012 on PRO Rumors:
The New York Mets have agreed to terms, pending physical, with their first round pick Gavin Cecchini according Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com. Quinn Roberts of MLB.com adds that the deal is for $2.3 million and that the team will make an official announcement today. Yesterday, we reported that the Kansas City Royals were close to an agreement with their first round pick Kyle Zimmer. Today, Jim Callis of Baseball America reports that Zimmer signed for $3 million with the team. Here we have a little scouting report on the right hander. Zimmer, 21, is 6?3? and 210 lbs. Long arms with strong thick legs and good body strength and physical maturity. High 3/4 delivery with a loose arm action and smooth delivery. His fastball sits at 92-94 MPH with great movement and life. Reports indicate that Zimmer also possesses a sharp curveball with plus-plus 12-6 break and a good change up. Needs to improve his command. Callis also reports that the Milwaukee Brewers signed their first round pick Victor Roach for $1.525.
