Cameron is being advised by Scott Boras. He was considered a potential first overall draft pick in the 2015 Major League Baseball (MLB) Draft; however, he fell into the competitive lottery pick round because of rumored high contract demands. The Houston Astros took him 37th overall; as the team with the largest draft spending pool, they were thought to have the best chance to sign Cameron. Cameron signed with the Astros for a reported $4 million signing bonus.
