The Milwaukee Brewers signed their first-round pick on Friday.
Shortstop Brice Turang, a high schooler taken 21st by Milwaukee, agreed to a $3,411,100 signing bonus, $397,500 above his slot value.
The deadline for draft picks to sign, unless they have exhausted college eligibility, was 5 p.m. Friday. Two other first-round selections remained without agreements: right-hander Carter Stewart (selected eighth by Atlanta) and shortstop Matt McLain (25th by Arizona).
