Harvard-Westlake’s Crow-Armstrong, Corona’s Greene agree to deals with New York Mets

NEW YORK — First-round draft pick Pete Crow-Armstrong of Harvard-Westlake High School and the New York Mets agreed Thursday to a minor-league contract with a $3,359,000 signing bonus, the slot value for the 19th overall selection in the amateur draft.

The 18-year-old center fielder from Sherman Oaks hit .514 in 10 games for Harvard-Westlake during the shortened spring season. He batted .426 with three homers and five triples during his junior season.

Crow-Armstrong has elite defensive skills in center with Gold Glove potential, according to scouts and evaluators, and a top-of-the-order profile as a hitter.

The Mets also announced they agreed to a deal with outfielder Isaiah Greene, a second-round compensatory selection from Corona High School.

The speedy Greene, 18, was the 69th overall pick, which New York received as compensation for losing free-agent pitcher Zack Wheeler to Philadelphia last December.

Greene got an $850,000 signing bonus, below his slot value of $929,800.
