LOS ANGELES, Calif. - The Montreal Expos have signed their No. 1 draft pick, UCLA right-handed pitcher Josh Karp (Jr., Bothell, WA). Terms of the agreement were not immediately disclosed.
Karp was selected sixth overall in last June's draft after posting a 5-2 record with a 3.26 ERA for the Bruins last spring. In 80 innings, Karp recorded 92 strikeouts and emerged as one of the best pitching prospects in the nation.
Karp finishes his UCLA career with 23 victories, fifth-most in Bruin history, and with an ERA of 4.21. He was the 17th UCLA player taken in the first round of the draft.
