The Dodgers wasted little time in getting one of their new draft picks into the fold, as the team has reportedly agreed to terms with second-round pick Tom Windle, a left-handed pitcher out of the University of Minnesota, per Darren Wolfson of ESPN 1500 in Minnesota.

Wolfson said that Windle plans to sign his contract next week, and that the left-hander will sign for slot value. Per Baseball America, the slot value of the No. 56 pick in the draft is $986,500.

"It's an honor to be selected by any Major League team, but to be selected by the Dodgers that's pretty cool and I'm really excited right now," Windle told GopherSports.com on Thursday. I'm just happy that they have given me this opportunity."

Windle isn't the only Dodger draftee to agree to terms, as fourth-round pick Cody Bellinger reportedly agreed to a deal before getting picked. Kyle Odegard of the East Valley Tribune in Arizona reported that Bellinger agreed to a deal at "third round money," which means instead of the slot bonus of $409,000 Bellinger will get somewhere near $566,500.
