  2. Good for him.
     
  3. Tripled his money in 3 years. I’m sure Schloss will be pointing to this example for quite a few years.
     
  4. Considerably more money combined with a university resume. Well done!
     
  5. Does anyone who where the Reds will be sending him to start his career?
     
  6. No clue where they’re sending him and TBH wouldn’t shock me if he pitched very little or not at all this summer.

    curious the number of mlb prospects who were taken in the first two rounds who turned down the chance to sign and then were taken in a higher position 2-3 years later.
