NEW YORK — First-round draft pick Michael Conforto from Woodinville has signed with the New York Mets.

The 21-year-old All-American outfielder from Oregon State, selected 10th overall last month, receives a $2,970,800 bonus — the assigned value for his draft slot.

The team said Conforto will start his professional career with Class A Brooklyn in the short-season New York-Penn League.
