WASHINGTON (AP) -The Washington Nationals and sixth-round draft pick Jack McGeary, a high school left-hander, agreed to terms on a contract with a $1.8 million signing bonus right before the midnight deadline Wednesday night.
McGeary was rated as the 18th-best pitching prospect among draft-eligible players by Baseball America, but he was expected to enroll at Stanford University. He went 6-1 with a 0.88 ERA and 80 strikeouts in 40 innings over seven starts as a senior at Roxbury Latin High School in West Roxbury, Mass.
His decision to join the Nationals means the club will have signed its top 20 picks in the 2007 draft.
