The Detroit Tigers agreed to terms Friday with right-hander Jackson Jobe, the No. 3 overall pick in the 2021 draft.

The Tigers also reached a deal with shortstop Izaac Pacheco, a second-round selection (39th overall).

Terms were not disclosed for either player. The slot value for Jobe as the third pick was $7.22 million.

Jobe went 9-0 with a 0.13 ERA over 51 2/3 innings as a senior at Oklahoma City's Heritage High School. He struck out 122 batters and walked only five.

Pacheco batted .543 with six home runs and 45 RBIs in 34 games in his senior season at Friendswood (Texas) High.
