Dodgers sign Chris Anderson and Tom Windle for full slot, as well as others

The Dodgers inked first-round draft pick Chris Anderson to a $2,109,900 bonus, which was slot-recommended for the No. 18 selection.

Anderson signed less than a week after being drafted. The Dodgers inked 2012 first-rounder Corey Seager more than three weeks after drafting him last year and went over slot to do it.

Anderson, 20, boasts a 90-96 MPH fastball with sink, a potentially plus slider in the low-to-mid-80s and a changeup at the same velocity.

The Dodgers have officially signed just Anderson at this point. Word is second-rounder Tom Windle will sign for full slot. In fact, Baseball America's Jim Callis just confirmed it. Sixth-rounder Jacob Rhame tweeted and said he's officially signed. Eighth-rounder Kyle Farmer tweeted a photo of himself signing his contract and 12th-rounder Adam Law did the same.

It's unknown how much Rhame and Farmer received, but the Dodgers didn't save any money on their first two selections.

Expect a slew of signings in the coming days and weeks.
