CLEVELAND (AP) - Brady Aiken will receive a signing bonus of just over $2.5 million from the Cleveland Indians.

The left-hander, taken with the 17th overall pick in the amateur draft, agreed to a minor league deal last week that includes a signing bonus of $2,513,280, slightly above the slot value of $2,393,600.

Aiken was the No. 1 overall selection in last year’s amateur draft by Houston but didn’t sign after the Astros became concerned about his elbow. Aiken had Tommy John surgery in March and won’t be able to pitch until next year.
