A few days ago we heard that third baseman Ke’Bryan Hayes, taken 32nd overall in the draft last Monday, had already reached an agreement with the Pittsburgh Pirates. Jon Heyman has the bonus amount this morning and Hayes will sign for $1,855,000, which is exact amount of his slot. Hayes posted on Twitter yesterday that he was on his way to Pittsburgh. His deal could be officially announced today, one day after the Pirates announced the signing of their other first round pick, shortstop Kevin Newman. Our draft tracker has been updated with the new information.
