The Marlins have agreed to terms with their frst-round draft pick Chad James, a high school pitcher out of Oklahoma.
James, a left-hander who was chosen with the 18th overall pick, will receive a $1.7 million bonus, as well as a six-figure college scholarship that he can use in the future.
The Marlins plan to officially sign James on Monday.
At the time he was drafted in June, James -- out of Yukon High School near Oklahoma City -- predicted he would be in the majors within three years.
