Indians top draft pick Alex White is said to be seeking top-five type money, according to Jim Callis of Baseball America.
The Cleveland Indians drafted White as the no. 15 pick in this year's amateur draft. The University of North Carolina right-hander was 8-4 last season with an 3.87 ERA in 107 innings. He struck out 121 and walked 44.
The two sides have until Aug. 17 to work out a deal. White, a junior last season, could return to North Carolina if a deal is not reached. The signing deadline does not apply to seniors who were drafted. They can sign whenever a deal is reached.
