According to MLB.com’s Jonathan Mayo, Bello received a $550,000 signing bonus from the Brewers, taking roughly $275,000 less than the slot value for the No. 73 overall pick, which was $824,900.
Punahou and Oregon State alumnus KJ Harrison, who was drafted by the Brewers in the third round (No. 84 overall) last year, earned a signing bonus of $667,000.
The Brewers also have Waiakea alumni Quintin Torres-Costa and Kodi Medeiros in their farm system. Both are currently playing for Biloxi in Double-A.
