Cardinals Sign 1st-Rounder Kolten Wong

According to Baseball America's Jim Callis' twitter, the St. Louis Cardinals have signed their 1st-Round pick Kolten Wong to a $1.3 million signing bonus. The bonus is just barely above the slot recommendation by MLB for the 22nd overall pick.

A 2nd Baseman from Hawaii, Wong hit for a line of .378/.492/.560 as a junior with 7 home runs and 23 stolen bases. Although he is only listed at 5'9" 190 lbs, Wong is an outstanding hitter and should provide solid defense at 2nd base.
