Greene, the righthander who throws up to 101 miles per hour as well as a shortstop with prodigious power, will receive $7.23 million, according to BA's Hudson Belinsky, making Greene the third player in this year's draft to get $7 million or more.
Zach Buchanan of the Cincinnati Enquirer added that, along with Greene's record-setting bonus, he also became the "first player to go in top two picks and go over slot".
Greene's deal is the largest handed out since the draft went to its current format. His money beats what Brendan McKay received from the Rays at No. 4, which previously was a record.
Bill Cosby's sexual assault retrial is scheduled to begin November 6
Cosby was charged with aggravated indecent assault for allegedly drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand in January 2004. CNN reports that on Thursday the judge who presided over Cosby's June mistrial scheduled a retrial for November 6 of this year.
Greene had been in Cincinnati during the week to take a physical, indicating something was close between the sides.
A two-way star at Notre Dame HS in Sherman Oaks, Calif., Greene was recently touted on the cover of "Sports Illustrated" as a potential star that can both hit and pitch at the major league level.
Greene has also played shortstop at Notre Dame High School, but a fastball that can reach 100 miles per hour has the Reds projecting him as a future ace.
