The Dodgers have agreed to terms with outfielder Mitch Hansen, their second-round pick in the 2015 MLB Draft, per Kiley McDaniel of FanGraphs, convincing the Plano High School standout to forgo his commitment to Stanford with a $997,500 bonus, per Jim Callis of MLB.com.
The No. 67 pick overall has slot bonus allotment was $921,100, putting the Dodgers $78,900 over slot given the bonuses we know, leaving plenty of room to sign Walker Buehler and Kyle Funkhouser, their first two picks, as well as 11th-round pick Imani Abdullah out of Madison High School in San Diego.
The Dodgers haven't yet confirmed the signing, though the team did announce the signing of 24 other draft picks on Monday.
Hansen reportedly agreed to terms on Sunday, then flew to Camelback Ranch in Arizona for his physical on Monday.

Dodgers director of amateur scouting Billy Gasparino last week called Hansen "a five-tool player."
Baseball America rated Hansen as their No. 43 prospect heading into the draft and likened him to former Dodgers outfielder Shawn Green, saying of the left-hander, "Hansen has an ideal corner outfielder's frame as he should add significant good weight to his 6-foot-4, 200-pound frame."
