The Washington Nationals have come to terms with Texas OF'er Kevin Keyes, their 7th round pick in the 2010 draft.
No terms of the deal were given, but Keyes is now an official member of the Vermont Lake Monsters, the Washington Nationals Short Season A Ball team.
Dustin McComas of orangebloods.com confirmed the signing on his twitter page while also speculating that Keyes signing bonus was worth 125,000 dollars.
Spoke with a source that informed me Kevin Keyes signed with the #Nationals, and will begin his pro career soon. Congrats to Kevin. #UT
