Sixteen days after being selected in the 5th round by Cincinnati in the 2015 Major League Baseball Draft, recent Campbell graduate Ian Kahaloa is officially a member of the Reds.
MLB.com’s Jim Callis first reported that the right-hander inked a signing bonus of $300,000.
The slot value for the 145th pick was listed at $369,400. Callis reported that Kahaloa had originally agreed to a deal for $400k before a physical raised concerns about an elbow that threw 138 pitches in the HHSAA State Tournament semifinal round.
Kahaloa has reported to the Arizona Rookie League, however it is unknown at this time when he will begin game participation.
