Jim Callis of MLB.com reports that the White Sox and their fifth round pick, Bailey Horn, have agreed to a deal.

Horn’s bonus will be around $150,000, a tad shy of the pick's slot value of $386,600. This is likely a result of fellow draft picks Jared Kelley and Garrett Crochet receiving above-slot money.

There is a good chance that Rick Hahn and company knew their first two picks would require above-slot money, and they would have to pick a player they like later that would cost less than slot. It seems like the White Sox found that player with Horn in the fifth round.
