Clemson RHP signs with Mets

Clemson junior right-hander Ryley Gilliam signed with the New York Mets as expected on Wednesday.

Per MLB.com's Jim Callis, Gilliam's deal is above the pick slot value of $379,400 for the 140th pick with a $550,000 contract.

The Kennesaw, Georgia product was tagged by MLB.com as a prospect who could make the Major League level the fastest.

"Another reliever who dominated college hitters this spring, Gilliam is a small guy with a quick arm that produces one of the better curveballs in this Draft," MLB.com's Jim Callis said, "not to mention 91-96 mph fastballs. The Clemson product has an up-tempo delivery with some funkiness that adds deception, though it also can hamper his command at times."

Gilliam earned All-American honors last season at Clemson with 11 saves and a 1.41 ERA. For Team USA last summer, Gilliam didn't allow an earned run in 8 1/3 innings with a .148 opponent batting average, nine strikeouts and three saves.
