Diamondbacks agreed to terms with first-round pick RHP Braden Shipley.
Shipley, the No. 15 overall pick in this month's first-year player draft, received a signing bonus from the Snakes worth $2.25 million. The athletic right-hander out of the University of Nevada already boasts a high-90s fastball and a power curve. He can rise quickly. Tue, Jun 18, 2013 05:54:00 PM

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Diamondbacks are nearing a deal with first-round pick right-hander Braden Shipley.

Shipley was selected No. 15 overall in this month's First-Year Player Draft. Standing at 6-foot-3 and 190 pounds, the University of Nevada product throws in the mid-90s with his fastball while his curveball and changeup have the chance to be quality offerings.

Diamondbacks selected Nevada RHP Braden Shipley with the 15th overall pick.

The Diamondbacks, already pretty well loaded with young arms, get some very good value here; Shipley throws in the mid-90s, gets swings and misses with his curve and also throws a changeup. He probably won't move as quickly with the Diamondbacks as he might have in another organization, but he'll be another potential No. 2 or 3 starter for the club.
