South Carolina Gamecocks 2B Max Schrock signs with Nationals

New, 16 comments

Next year Carolina will have some work to do if they want to maintain production from the second base position

Max ended up doing what most thought he would. Signing with the Washington Nationals. The specifics of the contract have yet to be released, but rumor is he will get a sizable bonus, despite his slot value being much lower than a 6 figure value. We don't know specifics yet, but since Schrock signed I would make a guess that he ended up getting that bonus as the Nationals reportedly valued Max highly. Schrock finished the 2015 season hitting .328/.419/.500 with 6 homeruns and 34 RBI, despite battling injury for most of the year. Max will end his career with a .302 average to go along with 17 homeruns and 93 RBI's. As more information becomes available I will post updates as best I can. For more information in the upcoming days, head over to our sister site Federal Baseball.

****UPDATE****

I barely finished typing those words when his contract figures came out. Max will reportedly sign a contract with a $500,000 signing bonus. That is the highest bonus for any draftee taken after the 10th round so far this year.
