The Dodgers have reached a contract agreement with 2nd round pick, Landon Knack. He was the 60th pick of the draft and was a 5th-year senior at East Tennessee State University. The Dodgers still have two more picks to sign in the form of Clayton Beeter and Jake Vogel. With the Dodgers having about $2.8M left to sign their last two picks I remain hopeful that the Dodgers can sign both of them.
2nd-rder Landon Knack signs w/@Dodgers for $715k (slot 60 = $1,157,400). That must be a record for a 5th-yr senior. East Tennessee State RHP, led NCAA D-I in K (51 in 25 IP) & K/BB (51/1) after stuff jumped this spring, fastball was 93-98, always has pounded zone. @MLBDraft

After a summer spent lifting weights and firming up his burly 6-foot-2 frame, he worked at 93-95 mph deep into games and touched 98 during the shortened season. He tightened his slider into a consistently solid offering, added power to what had been a get-me-over curveball and continued to demonstrate feel for his changeup. – MLB Pipeline
It is possible that he might be added to the 60-man pool of players. They have not added anyone from the 2020 draft yet, but they still have that option.
