ATLANTA (AP) – The Braves have signed left-hander Sean Gilmartin, the team’s first-round pick from Florida State, for a bonus of $1,134,000.

Braves director of scouting Tony DeMacio said Friday that Gilmartin is expected to “move fast through our system” after reporting to the team’s minor league complex in Orlando, Fla.

Gilmartin was 12-1 with a 1.83 ERA in 2011 and was selected 28th overall by Atlanta last month. He had 122 strikeouts and was ranked by Baseball America as the 16th-best college pitcher in the draft.

Gilmartin, from Moorpark, played his prep ball at Crespi High School in Encino.
