First-round pick Hurston Waldrep, a right-handed pitcher, signed for $2,997,500. The slot value for the pick was $3,270,500.
Second-round pick Drue Hackenberg, another righty, signed for $1,997,500. The slot value was $1,369,300.
Outfield Isaiah Drake, a North Atlanta High product, signed for $747,500. The slot value was $367,500, so the Braves paid him an above-slot bonus to entice him to sign instead of going to Georgia Tech.
The Braves also went above the slot value to sign righty Garrett Baumann. They signed him for $747,500. That fourth-round selection had a slot value of $521,800. Baumann, a prep righty from Vaughn Grissom’s high school, stands at 6-foot-8.
The Braves haven’t officially announced the entirety of their signings.
