MIAMI -- Tyler Kolek, armed with a 100-mph fastball, is ready to bring the heat to South Florida.
The Marlins have reached an agreement with the No. 2 overall pick from this year's First-Year Player Draft. According to MLB.com's Jim Callis, the hard-throwing 18-year-old will receive a below-slot bonus of $6 million.
The slot value for the pick was $6,821,800.
Miami has aggressively pursued its picks from each of the first 10 rounds.
With Kolek, negotiations advanced quickly. The deal was basically in place a few days ago, but it has been pending completion of physicals.
The Marlins have not officially announced the signing.
Miami has also come to a deal with catcher Blake Anderson, the 36th overall pick. His deal is for $1.17 million.
Shortstop Justin Twine, the 43rd overall pick, was taken in the second round, and he will receive a bonus of $1.316 million. Second baseman Brian Anderson, a third-round selection, is signing for $600,000.
Kolek is Miami's prize pick.
Raised on a 10,000-acre ranch in Shepherd, Texas, Kolek has a fastball that has been clocked as high as 102 mph, the highest reading ever by a high school player.
