MINNEAPOLIS -- The Brewers announced the signings of 21 additional players from the 2012 First-Year Player Draft on Friday, including supplemental first-round pick Mitch Haniger.

Haniger, an outfielder from Cal Poly, tweeted on Friday that he passed a physical and flew to Milwaukee to sign his contract. He received a $1.2 million signing bonus, according to a baseball source.

Second-rounder Tyrone Taylor, an outfielder from Torrance H.S. (Calif.), signed for $750,000, according to Baseball America. MLB's recommended pick value for the slot was $523,600, so the figure represents Milwaukee's first notable over-slot signing of this Draft class.

Fourth-round pick Tyler Wagner, a right-handed pitcher from Utah, tweeted that he signed his contract and will report to rookie-level Helena.

The Brewers have now signed 12 of their first 15 selections, including the signings of first-rounders Clint Coulter and Victor Roache, announced on June 8.
