Powell inks deal with Mex City
The number two overall pick in this year's amateur draft has ended the suspense. Independence High School pitcher Charles Powell signed a deal with the Mexico City Day Laborers that will pay him a $3.91 million bonus. His signing means that the only top ten picks left to sign a contract with their teams are Charlie Clark, taken 7th overall by Houston, and Dan Berry, taken with the 10th overall pick by Florida. Clark is demanding a $7.5 million bonus but is leaning towards college either way while Berry is looking for a shade over $3 million.
