The Baltimore Orioles and first-round draft choice, Kevin Gausman have agreed to terms on a contract. The announcement came via Gausman himself via twitter.

The signing bonus is $4.32M, reports ESPN.com’s own Keith Law, again, via twitter. The team announced the official deal.

The MLB recommended bonus for the fourth overall pick is $4.2M, so Gausman came out with $120K extra. Not bad.

The Louisiana State righty has a fastball that sits at 94-96 MPH, very good change-up, and a curve and slider.
