The Cubs have agreed to terms with first-round pick Ian Happ, the Sun-Times has confirmed.
Happ and the Cubs agreed on a $3 million signing bonus, which comes in just under the $3,351,000 slotted for the ninth overall pick.
Happ, the fifth straight position player drafted by the Cubs with their first pick, played the outfield and infield in college. He’s expected to start his pro career at short-season-A Eugene of the Northwest League.
Happ batted .369 and cranked 14 home runs, 18 doubles and 44 RBIs in his final college season at Cincinnati.
The new Cub tweeted Sunday that he’s headed to Arizona.
MLB.com’s Jim Callis was the first to report the Cubs and Happ agreed to terms.
