MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Twins have signed their first-round draft pick, shortstop Levi Michael.

Michael’s deal was reached Monday night. It includes a $1,175,000 bonus.

The switch-hitting Michael was taken with the 30th overall selection. He batted .289 with 14 doubles, three triples, five home runs and 48 RBIs in 65 games for the University of North Carolina this season.

The Twins also beat the midnight Eastern time deadline to sign 10 more picks, including both of the high-schoolers they took in the supplemental round. Third baseman Travis Harrison of Tustin, Calif., was the 50th overall selection, and right-handed pitcher Hudson Boyd of Fort Myers, Fla., was the 55th overall pick.

The Twins signed 33 of their 52 draft picks overall, including their top 15.
