ATLANTA (AP) - The Braves have signed left-hander Sean Gilmartin, the team’s first-round pick from Florida State, for a bonus of $1,134,000.

Braves director of scouting Tony DeMacio said Friday Gilmartin is expected to “move fast through our system” after reporting to the team’s minor league complex in Orlando.

Gilmartin was 12-1 with a 1.83 ERA in 2011. He had 122 strikeouts and was ranked by Baseball America as the 16th-best college pitcher in the draft.

Gilmartin, from Moorpark, Calif, was drafted by San Diego in the 31st round of the 2008 draft before launching his college career.
