That was considerably above the pick value of $1,003,200 assigned to the 56th overall pick.

Blewett, from Baker High School in Baldwinsville, N.Y. was the Royals' fourth choice in the Draft.

At 6-6 and 210 pounds, Blewett has a fastball that's been clocked up to 95 mph and a good breaking ball. His career record at Baker High was 16-0 with a 1.01 ERA and 195 strikeouts in 124 1/3 innings.
