2013 MLB Draft: Chris Anderson, Dodgers agree to terms for slot, per reports

Jennifer Hilderbrand-US PRESSWIR

The Dodgers' bonus pool allotted by MLB for their first 10 picks - plus any amount over $100,000 for picks past the 10th round - is $5,211,700.

The Dodgers have agreed to terms with 2013 first round draft pick Chris Anderson, a right-handed pitcher out of Jacksonville University, per Jim Callis of Baseball America. Anderson, the 18th overall pick on Thursday, agreed to the slot amount of $2,109,900.

Anderson, 20, went 7-5 with a 2.49 ERA and three complete games in 14 starts this season for Jacksonville, and garnered second team All-Atlantic Sun Conference honors in his junior campaign. He was rated by Baseball America as the ninth-best right-handed pitcher in the 2013 draft.

The 6'4, 225-pound right-hander had the leverage of returning to Jacksonville for his senior season, but on Friday indicated his plans were to join the Dodgers, and quickly.

"I'm pretty set on turning pro," Anderson said. "I'm ready to go. I'm ready to get in there and compete, and do what I love to do, and pitch."

The Dodgers have taken a pitcher with their first pick in 10 of the last 11 drafts.

No draft signings have yet been announced by the Dodgers, but they have a number of agreements in place. In addition to Anderson, second round pick Tom Windle, a left-handed pitcher from the University of Minnesota, agreed to terms last week, and Callis confirmed the deal for the slot amount of $986,500.

Fourth-round pick Cody Bellinger reportedly agreed to an over-slot deal for "third round money," and they also have deals for unknown amounts with sixth-round pitcher Jacob Rhame, eighth round catcher Kyle Farmer and 12th round third baseman Adam Law, per various tweets from the players themselves. Law is already at Camelback Ranch:
