Justin Upton SIGNED

Postby The Great One » Sat Jan 07, 2006 3:36 pm

Diamondbacks signed shortstop Justin Upton, their first-round pick in the 2005 draft.
It's payable over five years, but Upton gets a $6.1 milion signing bonus, the largest in a minor league contract for a drafted player who was not a free agent. Upton probably won't arrive in the majors until 2008 at the earliest and it's too soon to say what position he might be playing when that happens. Still, he has to be regarded as one of baseball's best prospects. He's an outstanding offensive talent.

Another fabulous move by new GM Josh Byrnes.
