Arnett agrees to terms

Eric Arnett, who was selected by the Milwaukee Brewers with the 26th pick in the recent MLB draft, has agreed to terms according to MLB.com.

Right-hander Eric Arnett agreed to terms on his first professional contract Friday, three days after the Brewers made him the 26th overall pick in the First-Year Player Draft. He received a $1.2 million signing bonus, the slot figure set by Major League Baseball.

“We just got a deal done,” Arnett said. “It’s tremendous. This has been a dream of mine since I was a little kid and to have it really happen is awesome.”

Brewers amateur scouting director Bruce Seid wouldn’t confirm that there was a deal in place, as Arnett has not yet actually signed a contract.

Arnett said he will travel from his Ohio home to Milwaukee on Saturday to attend the Brewers-White Sox game, followed by a dinner with club officials. He did not expect to meet the media until Sunday.
