The announcement of Crow-Armstrong’s signing comes hours after the team officially announced the signing of second-round compensation pick Isaiah Greene, and according to MLB.com, RHP J.T. Ginn, the Mets’ actual second-round pick, is the only member of their draft class left unsigned.

Also per numbers reported by MLB.com, the team has roughly $2.7 million left in its draft bonus allocation pool to sign Ginn, whose slot value at the No. 52 selection overall is $1.4 million.
