The Indians have agreed to terms with 7th round pick catcher Eric Haase, and his signing is expected to become official anytime between now and next Monday August 16th. The Indians have not officially announced the signing, probably because they may have to wait a few days before MLB approves the signing to be released publicly due to his expected well overslot bonus.

Haase had a commitment to attend Ohio State University to play baseball, but will instead hope to pass through Columbus down the road via the Indians' Triple-A affiliate. He offers up an interesting power-speed skill set, and while he is a catcher has the versatility with his athleticism to move to a corner position.

UPDATE: The signing is now official and Haase signed for $580K.
