The Phillies have agreed on bonus terms with first-round pick Adam Haseley, according to’s Todd Zolecki. (’s Jim Salisbury tweeted yesterday that the draftee was in Philadelphia.) While the deal has yet to be finalized, it is likely to be inked in the coming days.

Financial terms are not yet known. Haseley was tabbed with the eighth overall pick of the draft, which comes with a $4,780,400 bonus allocation. It seems that the Phils have largely sorted out their pool money for the draft, as Zolecki also notes that the club has deals in place with the bulk of its top ten picks. That includes second-round pick Spencer Howard and third-rounder Jake Scheiner.

Haseley, an outfielder at the University of Virginia, emerged as a consensus top-ten draft prospect after a huge junior season. The left-handed hitter isn’t seen as a major future power source, but did hit 14 long balls on the year and otherwise delivers strong tools across the board. He is expected to be able to handle center field as a professional.
