Per MLB Draft Tracker: (Approx. Pick Value; $2.2M)

A late bloomer in high school, McClanahan opted for South Florida instead of the Mets, who had taken him in the 26th round in 2015. Tommy John surgery wiped out his freshman year, but he came back and pitched well as the Bulls' Saturday starter. He's kept it going as USF's ace this year, among the best in the nation in strikeouts per nine innings and being one of 40 named to USA Baseball Golden Spikes Award Midseason Watch List as a result. McClanahan has as good of an arm as just about any college pitcher in the Draft, and the fact that it's his left one certainly doesn't hurt his Draft stock. He's touched triple digits this year with his fastball consistently all spring, hitting 97-100 on a regular basis. He combines that with a plus changeup, a pitch he throws with good arm speed that features a ton of late drop to it. His slider gives him a third at least average pitch. While his strikeout rate has been really high, his walk rate has been as well. That, plus a delivery that features a fairly big recoil, have some wondering if he's better suited for a bullpen, especially if that could get him to the big leagues in a hurry. With a loose and very athletic frame, though, McClanahan might be able to get away with those mechanics. He's elicited some Chris Sale comps, with some scouts thinking he has better stuff now, at least with the fastball, than Sale did in his Draft year.

314 slot value is $136,800 so he will get a nice bonus.  I don't know about $150K, but close.
