The Royals announced on Friday that the physical was complete, he passed and the signing is official.

The signing bonus is believed to be in the neighborhood of $2.8 million, which is slightly higher than what the Royals were expecting to pay.

He's expected to report to high-A in Wilmington within two weeks.
