Marlins agree with 2nd-rounder Lilek, 7 others
MIAMI -- The Marlins have agreed to terms with their second-round Draft pick, left-handed pitcher Brett Lilek from Arizona State, for $1 million, according to MLB.com's Jim Callis.
While the club has yet to confirm the Lilek agreement, it announced prior to Monday's matchup with the Yankees that it came to terms with seven other Draft picks: sixth-rounder Justin Cohen (catcher, Riverview HS/Fla.), seventh-rounder Travis Neubeck (RHP, Indian Hills CC), eighth-rounder Chris Paddack (RHP, Cedar Park HS/Texas), 12th-rounder Terry Bennett (CF, Atlantic Coast HS/Fla.), 13th-rounder RJ Peace (RHP, Serrano HS/Calif.), 14th-rounder Jordan Hillyer (RHP, Kennesaw State) and 20th-rounder Korey Dunbar (catcher, North Carolina).
Lilek, a 6-foot-4 junior, was nabbed by the Marlins with the 50th pick. He was 4-2 with a 3.20 ERA with the Sun Devils this season and features a fastball that reaches 94 mph.
The 18-year-old Cohen previously committed to play collegiately for Florida State. Meanwhile, Paddack had committed to Texas A&M and Bennett was committed to Florida International University.
