Byron Buxton And Twins Have Tentative Agreement In Place

It looks like Byron Buxton will be officially signed, sealed and delivered to the Minnesota Twins very shortly. Buxton, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2012 draft, has agreed to a tentative agreement with Minnesota, via the St. Paul Pioneer Press' Ben Goessling.

While there are "a few minor details" to be sorted out, the rookie deal should be finalized after the completion of a physical Tuesday. The recommended signing bonus for Buxton's draft slot is $6.2 million, but the details of the agreement remain unknown.

Goessling also reports that the Twins' third round pick, Adam Walker, will receive his recommended signing bonus of $494,400. This came hours after the report that 18-year-old pitcher Jose Berrios had agreed to terms with Minnesota. He is set to receive the recommended $1.55 million signing bonus.
