CHICAGO -- The White Sox agreed to terms with 28 players from their 2014 First-Year Player Draft class, including nine of their Top 10 selections. Carlos Rodon, the third selection overall, is the only player not signed of that first 10.

This list of signees includes second-round pick Spencer Adams, third-round pick Jace Fry and fourth-round pick Brett Austin. Adams, a right-handed hurler from White County High School in Georgia, was at the ballpark Wednesday and signed at a full recommended slot value of $1,282,700, per MLB.com's Jim Callis. Callis also confirmed that Fry, a southpaw from Oregon State, came in at $760,000, which was above the recommended $726,000.

Adams produced a 0.72 ERA with 90 strikeouts as a senior at White County High School, while Fry finished 11-2 with a 1.80 ERA in 16 starts as a junior for Oregon State. Austin served as Rodon's catcher at North Carolina St. and will remain a catcher in the White Sox organization.
