Incorrect. according to MLBTR:
The Royals' and Grandal had agreed to a predraft offer of $2.9MM. Yasmani Grandal then was offered $3.5ish by Cleveland. When Grandal went back to KC with this info they dropped him. Then Cleveland didn't even draft the kid, which to me is odd. The Reds had to know this. They have no intention of punting the pick. There was enough quality, signable talent at 12 that they coulda chose and let Grandal slide right by. Bet they have a deal in place by July 1st. Give him 30 games behind the plate in Dayton. AZFL, then Lynchburg to start next year.
Offer him $3MM. same money 8 spots later.... Take it or leave it.
Brentz, Vitek, Deglan already have deals so the ball is already rolling...
