Nationals Spend Big On Solis, Cole

Posted Aug. 15, 2010 1:08 am by Jim Callis
Filed under: Signings
The Nationals likely will go down to the midnight deadline Monday to sign No. 1 overall pick Bryce Harper, who's expected to break the record for the largest guarantee ever given to a position player in the draft ($9.5 million by Mark Teixeira from the Rangers in 2001). But Washington already has gotten a huge start on spending by agreeing to terms with fourth-round pick A.J. Cole for $2 million and second-rounder Sammy Solis for $1 million.

Cole broke the fourth-round bonus record of $1.5 million set by Athletics catcher Max Stassi a year ago. Cole and Solis received the first two seven-figure bonuses given to 2010 draftees after the supplemental first round. MLB's recommendations for their draft slots were $694,800 for Solis (No. 51 overall) and $258,300 for Cole (No. 116).

A righthander from Ovieda (Fla.) High, Cole entered 2010 as a near-lock first-rounder before inconsistency and signability concerns dropped him to the fourth round. At his best, the projectable 6-foot-5, 190-pounder works at 92-93 mph and touches 96 with his fastball. He also flashes a plus curveball and a changeup with late fade. He had committed to Miami.

After a herniated disc in his back limited him to two starts in 2009, Solis bounced back to go 9-2, 3.42 with 92 strikeouts in as many innings this spring as a redshirt sophomore at San Diego. The 6-foot-5, 228-pound lefty throws a lively 88-82 mph fastball and quality secondary pitches in his curveball and changeup.

Well, I guess Hammonds has to drop the LAC mantra after this one.

No I don't.  I applaud this move - no doubt - but this shouldn't stop us from having one of the lowest payrolls in baseball.

Extend dunn, sign crawford would be nice.

Here are the latest stats updates.  32nd round pick Randolph Oduber is the star of the class right now.

You have a typo in the second sentence:  "His .78 batting averages leads the entire Gulf Coast league. "

.378, not .78.

What is up with the high fielding errors of this draft class? Are we trying to get even worse defensively in the future? This is going to be a mess for our pitchers, haha.

Players typically have real high error totals in the low minors (Derek Jeter once had 56 errors). Unfortunately, some of them carry that to the big leagues (Hint: he is a monster).
