The Falcons junior right-hander, picked in the third round (93rd overall) by the Twins last week, signed with the organization Tuesday evening for the MLB-recommended slot value of $645,000.

Jax will spend his three-week summer break from the academy pitching for the Twins' Rookie League affiliate in Elizabethton, Tenn., starting June 25.
