ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -The Texas Rangers agreed to terms Tuesday with pitcher Michael Main, giving a $1.2 million signing bonus to the 24th overall pick in the amateur draft two weeks ago - and the second high school right-hander they picked in the first round.
Texas also agreed to terms Tuesday with high school third baseman Matt West from Bellaire, Texas. West was the 80th overall pick in the draft, the sixth by the Rangers.
The Rangers haven't yet signed Blake Beavan, the right-hander from nearby Irving High who was the 17th overall pick. Also unsigned are three players Texas got as supplemental picks between the first and second rounds.
Main, who is from DeLand, Fla., and Beavan were teammates on the U.S. junior national team that played in the world championships in Cuba last September.
