Arizona Diamondbacks Sign Trevor Bauer

On July 25th, The Arizona Diamondbacks signed 3rd overall pick right-handed pitcher Trevor Bauer to a contract, valued just north of $7.3 million over 4 years (more to follow). At the time of the signing, Bauer was on the short list of landing one the most lucrative deals in draft history. For those interested, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic tracked down the fine-print details of Bauer’s contract which includes a year-by-year salary breakdown.

Baseball America writes Bauer has "the deepest repertoire of any pitcher in the draft," while ESPN's Keith Law believes "Bauer can show two plus pitches and has a tremendous track record of missing bats" and has "premium stuff and a verifiable track record." The UCLA product is proving both of them right early on. Albeit only 14 innings at the lower levels of the minors, a 41% strikeout rate is nothing to sneeze at. Trevor Bauer's pitching repertoire will work anywhere. In fact, some believe Bauer could be working out of the Diamondbacks bullpen this year and could be starting for them next season.

Trevor Bauer's vigorous college workload, eccentric pregame routine, and questionable mechanics make the UCLA Bruin one of the most intriguing prospects in recent history. Visalia announcer Donny Baarns recently interviewed Trevor Bauer and sent it to our friends at the AZ Snake Pit. Courtesy of Jim McLennan and AZ Snake Pit, you can hear the must listen to interview and read the transcript here.

Along with Trevor Bauer, the Diamondbacks signed all six of their other top seven draft picks, including 7th overall selection Archie Bradley (RHP), and 43rd overall selection Andrew Chafin (LHP).
