Phillies Agree to Terms with Greene
The Phillies have agreed to terms with top draft pick Larry Greene.
MLB.com confirmed he received a $1 million signing bonus. The agreement came late last night.
Greene, 18, hit .562 with 11 doubles, one triple, 19 home runs, 52 RBIs, 58 runs scored and 13 stolen bases this season for Berrien County High School in Nashville, Ga. Greene, an outfielder listed at 6-foot-1 and 225 pounds, earned a football scholarship to Alabama.
Second-round pick Roman Quinn remains unsigned, but the Phillies are hopeful they can reach an agreement with the shortstop before tonight’s midnight deadline.
