Jung, a 21-year-old, a left-handed hitter from Texas Tech, signed for a $4,590,300 bonus, according to MLB.com’s Jim Callis. The signing bonus equals the full slot value for the 12th pick.
He is represented by agent Scott Boras.
Now that Jung has signed, he will begin his professional career at the team’s spring training complex in Lakeland, Florida.
