WASHINGTON (AP) - The Washington Nationals have agreed to terms with right-hander Erick Fedde, the 18th overall pick in the 2014 draft.
Fedde, a 6-4, 180-pound junior out of the UNLV, went 8-2 with a 1.76 ERA and 82 strikeouts in 11 starts for the Rebels this past season.
He was the 2014 Mountain West Pitcher of the Year.
Fedde underwent Tommy John surgery on June 3 and will report to Viera, Fla., to continue his rehab, according to GM Mike Rizzo.
The 21-year-old is a graduate of Las Vegas High School, where he played with Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper.
The team did not come to terms with its second-round pick, left-hander Andrew Suarez of the University of Miami, before Friday's 5 p.m. deadline.
