That is great for Casey. It takes some of the sting out of dropping in the draft. If he invests his money reasonably well and tax rates stay about the same, which they never do, he could be a pretty wealthy man in 20-30 years from this money.
If he makes the show and gets some of that crazy MLB money in salary…even better.
I am looking forward to watching him progress. Good luck, son.
$1.3 million was the slot value for the #55 pick in the second round.
