The Royals are getting closer to signing Blue Valley Northwest graduate Jason Adam, according to the Kansas City Star.
“Negotiations have been fairly painless,” said Adam, a fifth-round pick in the June draft. “We talked to them before the draft. They knew going in what it would take to sign me. It’s looking pretty sure we’ll sign.
“It’s probably 99 percent I’m going to the Royals.”
The Star reports that the deal is pending approval from the Commissioner's office which means the money is likely higher than MLB's suggested slotting.
