The Cincinnati Reds and Hunter Greene have come to an agreement and he is officially a part of the Reds organization. It came down to seemingly the last minute, but the two sides were able to come to an agreement. Jim Callis of had it first and it’s been confirmed by numerous other sources.

Zach Buchanan of the Cincinnati Enquirer had this signing bonus details first. Greene gets a record amount since the draft set pool limits, easily topping the $7,007,500 that was the previous record. He signed for $7,230,000.

With the signing, it gives the organization four Top 100 prospects according to Baseball America, who released their rankings earlier today. Hunter Greene came in at #30 overall, which would rank second among the organizations prospects behind third baseman Nick Senzel.

Hunter Greene is now in the fold, but the exact plan for him hasn’t been discussed yet. The 17-year-old right handed pitcher hasn’t thrown in a game since April. It would seem that the hope is to get him to Billings to pitch this season, but his first few appearances may very well come in the Arizona Rookie League in Goodyear where it will be a bit easier to manage his workload. That, of course, is a big assumption on my part and you know what they say about assumptions, right? In either case, though, Greene is expected to be the designated hitter on some of his non-pitching days.

It doesn’t appear that the Reds were able to sign anyone else today, though that matters far less than getting Hunter Greene signed. It would have been nice to make that happen, though.
