Bryce Harper: newest National treasure

MOST GUARANTEED MONEY AT SIGNING
DRAFT PICKS, MLB HISTORY

Bryce Harper, the first junior college player to ever be taken first overall in the MLB draft, signed for $9.9 million Monday night. The contract was inked just seconds before the deadline. The contract is good for the 5th most guaranteed money for a draft pick in MLB history. The record is held by Harper's new teammate Stephen Strasburg who got $15.1 million after being drafted first overall last year.
