Holbert ends holdout, signs with Day Laborers

The number one pick in the season 7 draft has finally ended the wait. 2B prospect Ken Holbert has accepted Mexico City's 3-year major league contract and $8 million signing bonus. Holbert had been holding out since being drafted, threatening to enter next year's draft if he didn't receive the contract he thought he deserved. Holbert initially had asked for a $4 million signing bonus, which the Day Laborer's eventually doubled.
