After much speculation that University of Hawai’i junior starting pitcher Scott Squier would leave the program after being drafted in the 16th round of this month’s Major League Baseball draft by the Marlins, the big lefty made it official this morning.

Squier inked a deal with Miami, agreeing to a minor league deal with an $80,000 dollar signing bonus. Squier leaves Hawai’i with a career record of 8-15, 3.47 earned run average, with 182 strikeouts in 207.1 innings pitched.

The Phoenix native says he will report to the Batavia Muckdogs of the New York-Penn League on Sunday.
