Twins ink first round draft pick Walker Jenkins

NEW YORK (AP) — Outfielder Walker Jenkins, the No. 5 overall pick in this month’s amateur draft, agreed to a $7,144,200 signing bonus with the Minnesota Twins ahead of the deadline and became the final first-round selection to reach a deal.

Jenkins is a high school player from North Carolina.

Only one player chosen in the first 10 rounds failed to reach an agreement by the 5 p.m. EDT deadline: UC Irvine outfielder Caden Kendle, selected by St. Louis in the 10th round with the 305th pick.

Teams reached deals with 313 of 314 picks in the first 10 rounds.

Arizona spent the most on the draft at $16,185,700.
