DIAMONDBACKS SIGN BAUER

The Arizona Diamondbacks have agreed to a deal with the number three overall draft pick, Trevor Bauer of UCLA. The 2011 Golden Spikes Award winner signed a four-year deal that includes a $3.4M signing bonus and has about $4.4M guaranteed.

Bauer had a standout 2011 at UCLA and was deemed by many scouts to be the most polished pitcher coming out. The Diamondbacks will send Bauer to the hi-A Visalia Rawhide in the California League.
