The Philadelphia Phillies and P Alec Rash, their second-round pick in the 2012 MLB Draft, were unable to reach an agreement. Rash's father said Saturday, July 7, that his son will attend the University of Missouri instead. "Primarily, it was the Phillies and us couldn't come to terms," Rash said. "Before the draft, all the teams that we were in contract with knew his signability." Rash's father said the family requested $800,000 during negotiations, while the Phillies countered with $500,000, plus $120,000 for college.
