While Bregman has already recorded his first minor league hit and home run, it was announced that the organization had agreed to terms with yet another prospect according to the Houston Chronicle.
This time, it would be outfielder Daz Cameron, the son of Mike Cameron – a man who won three Gold Glove awards with the Seattle Mariners (2001, 2003) and San Diego Padres (2006) in his 16 years as a major league player.
Cameron (No. 37 pick), 18, is rumored to receive a $4 million deal as originally reported by CBS Sports very own, Jon Heyman. It’s insane knowing that someone who is that young will be bringing in that type of money – then again, we all heard about the contract that Mike Trout signed with the Los Angeles Angels last season.
But if he’s anything like his Father, then it’s definitely going to pay off for this club in the long run considering Mike’s resume.
His agent, Scott Boras, has a history of working well with Houston’s current general manager, Jeff Luhnow in the past. Boras put himself in the spotlight earlier this season after publically criticizing Chicago Cubs President, Theo Epstein regarding rookie third baseman Kris Bryant starting off the year with the Triple-A Iowa Cubs near the end of Cactus League play.
It was a bit of a headache, but we all got through it and Kris is doing quite well for himself on the North Side of Chicago. He has, however, been dismissed by former closer and current Cubs reliever, Rafael Soriano, after demanding off-season money which resulted in the veteran missing out on the first half of the season.
Now, with all that agent stuff aside, the Houston Astros are expected to introduce the young outfielder tomorrow during a press conference at Minute Maid Park.
