Royals Sign Mike Montgomery

The Royals signed left-handed pitcher Mike Montgomery yesterday. Montgomery was a sandwich pick for the Royals in the draft this year. His signing bonus was $988,000 and he's on his way to the Arizona Rookie League, where he'll play for the Surprise Royals. Their season begins this coming weekend.

Montgomery had a scholarship offer from California State-Fullerton, but chose to sign with the Royals instead.

Bob Dutton is reporting that the Royals have signed "eight of 11 picks from the first 10 rounds and 28 of its 51 total picks."

The Royals also signed second round pick, 2B-Johnny Giovatella (he got a $787,000 signing bonus); third round pick, RHP-Tyler Sample ($500,000 signing bonus); fifth round pick, LHP-John Lamb (165,000 signing bonus); and sixth round pick, SS-Alex Llanos ($125,000 signing bonus).

The Star has made a .PDF available if you'd like to see the rest of the list. Here's a link to it.
