Orioles sign MLB second overall pick, Arkansas OF Kjerstad

BALTIMORE (AP) Outfielder Heston Kjerstad agreed to a minor league contract with the Baltimore Orioles that includes a $5.2 million signing bonus, well below the slot value of $7,789,900 assigned to the No. 2 overall pick.

"Just the beginning of a new journey! Excited to be an Oriole!" Kjerstad wrote on Twitter.

Kjerstad batted .448 with six homers and 20 RBIs over 16 games as a junior with Arkansas this year before the season was cut short by the coronavirus pandemic. He started every game in right field and had at least one hit in each outing.
