Clemson OF Seth Beer says he has a deal with the Astros

-

Outfielder Seth Beer, taken by the Astros with their first-round pick (28th overall) in the MLB Draft, said he has reached a contract agreement with the team.

“We worked out a deal,” Beer said in an interview with FOX 26 Sports. “I’ll fly in Tuesday to sign everything and then head off to short-season.

“It means a lot. I think both parties are very excited.”

In three seasons at Clemson Beer hit 56 home runs with 177 RBIs.

In 2016 he had a spectacular freshman season, winning the Dick Howser trophy given annually to the top player in college baseball.

Beer said it was a special moment for him when his adviser told him he had reached a contract agreement with the Astros.

“For me it’s a lifelong dream come true,” Beer said. “I’m just eager to go out and start my professional career.

“I’m just extremely excited to be a part of the Astros organization. To be part of the team that is defending  World Champs, I can’t even put that into words.”
