Marin reportedly agrees to terms
Orioles third-round pick, Adrian Marin, tweeted late last night that he has signed a contract with the Baltimore Orioles, which effectively means he has agreed to terms. He would still need a physical.
Marin is a speedy 5-foot-10, 165-pound shortstop out of Gulliver Prep (Fla.) who has signed a letter of intent to play with the University of Miami. Earlier this week, scouting director Gary Rajsich called Marin an exciting, five-tool player with a little bit of pop in his bat who could play second base, shortstop or even center field professionally. Executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette also singled out Marin’s athleticism.
It’s unknown what the the 18-year-old signed for, but the Orioles bonus pool for the 99th overall pick was $481,100.
He would the first Oriole draftee to agree to terms. For more on this year’s Draft, you can read the second day recap here and a summation on what this means for the Orioles system here. Duquette told MLB.com on Wednesday that the organization expects it won’t have a problem in signing its top 10 picks, including first-rounder Kevin Gausman.
