Former Sooner catcher Brady Lindsly signed a contract with the Washington Nationals, per MLB.com’s Jim Callis.
The fourth-rounder’s contract is worth $20,000, despite the assigned value for the No. 123 overall pick being $464,500. Sooners’ coach Skip Johnson has praised Lindsly for his leadership ability in the game of baseball.
"He brings a lot of enthusiasm,” Johnson said on a call with reporters on Friday. “He brings a lot of energy, he’s a leader, he’s a captain.”
The senior batted .275 in the condensed 2020 season, and will remain teammates with former Sooner Cade Cavalli, who was drafted with the 22nd pick by the Nationals.
