2012 MLB Draft: Jose Berrios To Sign With Twins With $1.55 Million Bonus

The Minnesota Twins and No. 32 pick Jose Berrios came to an agreement on Monday on a $1.55 million signing bonus, via the St. Paul Pioneer Press' Ben Goessling. The right-handed pitcher will receive exactly the recommended bonus for his draft slot after the completion of a physical.

This news comes on the heels of a report that No. 2 overall pick Bryon Buxton is 'very close' to signing with the Twins. The latest on Buxton is that he should take his physical on Tuesday.

Berrios is an 18-year-old from Puerto Rico who throws in the mid-90s. If this deal becomes official before Buxton's, it will be the highest pick signed by Minnesota.

The Twins were riding a three-game winning streak before falling to the Cubs on Monday. They begin a three-game series with the Philadelphia Phillies at home on Wednesday.
