Top Marlins draft pick Braxton Garrett signs deal

MIAMI (AP) Left-hander Braxton Garrett has signed with the Miami Marlins, who took him in the first round of last month's draft.

Garrett, 18, had been the only unsigned top-10 draft pick in the majors. The 6-foot-3, 190-pounder was selected seventh after pitching last season in high school in Florence, Alabama. He had a 0.53 ERA with 131 strikeouts in 65 1/3 innings.

Friday was the deadline to sign Garrett, who had a commitment to attend Vanderbilt.
