Former LSU right-handed pitcher Paul Skenes has received the largest contract bonus ever for an MLB draft pick, Kiley McDaniel of ESPN reported on Tuesday.

Skenes will receive a bonus of $9.2 million after signing with the Pittsburgh Pirates, who selected the pitcher with the No. 1 overall pick in the draft earlier this month.

Arizona State product Spencer Torkelson received the previous highest bonus at $8.42 million from the Detroit Tigers in 2020.
