Stryker Trahan Officially Signs With Arizona Diamondbacks (Or So He Tweets)

The Arizona Diamondbacks and first round pick Stryker Trahan have agreed to terms on his first contract, according to a tweet from his personal twitter account. Trahan was taken with the 26th overall pick in this week's MLB Draft and was eager to sign, which is always nice for all parties involved.

We have Trahan's tweet for you after the jump...

Here it is from Stryker's Twitter account, @strykert25

The Diamondbacks are yet to officially confirm the news, but you'd sure have to think the player himself would have a pretty good idea of where his contract negotiations stand. No word on the official numbers, but the slot signing bonus for the 26th pick typically sits in the range of $1.2 million or so. Not too bad for an 18-year-old catcher.

Trahan will likely report to Rookie Ball in a few weeks and get his feet wet against younger competition before the season wraps up. Look for him to begin the 2013 season in A-Ball as he begins his journey towards the big leagues.
