The Twins signed first-round draft pick Kyle Gibson to a $1.85 million signing bonus tonight, according to a person familiar with the negotiations.
The sides were facing an 11 p.m., deadline and worked into the final hour.
“This thing got done because the kid and the family wanted to get it done,” said Twins assistant general manager Rob Antony, who handled the final negotiations for the Twins.
Note: The official signing bonus is for $1.85 million. Will have more detail in our late editions.
