The Twins reached an agreement with first-round draft pick Byron Buxton, pending a physical Tuesday in the Twin Cities.

Buxton, an prep outfielder from Georgia, arrived in Minneapolis on Monday and met with the Twins at Target Field. The exact amount of the bonus is not yet known, but baseball's recommended bonus for the second overall pick is $6.2 million

The Twins also have agreements with righthander Jose Berrios, the 32nd overall pick, for $1.55 million; second-round pick J.T. Chargois, a righthander from Rice; fifth-round pick Tyler Duffey, a righthander also from Rice; Jorge Fernandez, a prep catcher from Puerto Rico; and eighth-round pick Christian Powell, a righthander from the College of Charleston, according to a club source. All deals are pending a physical.

Third-round pick Adam Brett Walker II, an outfielder from Jacksonville University, signed for $490,400, the league-recommended figure. Walker's father was a Vikings replacement player.

Buxton is expected to begin his pro career with the Twins' rookie league team in Fort Myers, Fla., with a chance to advance to Elizabethton, Tenn., of the Appalachian League.

Harmon's memorabilia

More than 30 items from the personal memorabilia collection of the late Harmon Killebrew (including an original painting by LeRoy Neiman and a baseball signed by President Dwight D. Eisenhower) will be on display from Tuesday through Thursday at Target Field. The collection will be shown on the main concourse inside Gate 34.

The items eventually will be moved to Kansas City to be auctioned off during the MLB All-Star FanFest on July 10.
