MLB Draft prospect Matt Purke is reportedly looking for a deal similar to the one Rick Porcello received from the Tigers back in 2007.

Porcello, the 27th pick that year, received a deal worth $7.285 million in guaranteed money, including a $3.58 million signing bonus.

Both of those numbers were records for a high school pitcher.

Purke, a left-handed pitcher from Klein High School in Texas, has committed to TCU.
