Red Sox sign second-round pick Brandon Workman
The Red Sox have come to terms with second-round pick Brandon Workman, signing him to an above-slot deal of $800,000. The University of Texas standout was taken with the No. 57 overall pick in the Draft.
News of taht signing came on the heels that the Sox had also gone over-slot to ink their third-round pick, high school infielder Sean Coyle. The Eastern Pennsylvania product was signed away from his University of North Carolina commitment for $1.3 million. He’s the first third-rounder to get a seven-figure bonus.
The Red Sox are still working on signing fourth-round pick Garin Cecchini and supplemental first round pick Anthony Ranaudo, both of whom will likely take above-slot deals to get done.
