The Dodgers have agreed to terms with one of their first 10 draft picks, and possibly another one. Seventh-round pick Trevor Oaks, a right-handed starting pitcher out of Cal Baptist, has signed with the club, per Chris Cotillo of SB Nation.
Oaks, who was 11-0 with a 1.68 ERA in 15 starts for Division II Cal Baptist as a redshirt sophomore, gets a signing bonus of $161,600 per Cotillo, $5,000 less than the slot amount for the No. 219 overall pick. Oaks also reportedly gets a $45,000 scholarship to complete his college education, which doesn't count against the bonus pool.
The Dodgers have not announced the signing, which usually just means he player hasn't yet taken his physical.
In addition to Oaks, it appears fourth-round pick Jeff Brigham, a right-handed pitcher from the University of Washington, has signed as well, unless Brigham was just being reflective in anticipation of a deal.

Counting Oaks and Brigham, the Dodgers have now signed eight of their top 10 picks, though we only know the bonuses for four of the eight signees. All signs continue to point to bonus money getting saved for some sort of over-slot offer to No. 1 pick Grant Holmes, No. 22 overall. Here is a look at the Dodgers draft bonus pool based on what we know now:
