The Red Sox have now signed their top 10 which are the bonus pool slots. The bonus for Noel Song was $100,000 which is a stunner, especially in light of the new executive order which will allow the Navy grad to play this coming season. This leaves the Sox with about $773k extra for signing others over and above the $125k bases. That should pretty much get them everyone they are likely to be trying for at this point (except Keane).

The Sox have also signed #12 Brendan Cellucci, #13 Blake Loubier, #25 Karson Simas. That's 3 of the 4 remaining guys I had hoped we'd sign. One more day left (unknown money) and I'm hoping for #15 Aaron Roberts.

The Sox are likely done (but have until next year's draft to sign any college seniors). That rarely happens but there's one that might happen.
SoxProspects.com @soxprospects Per our calculations, the Red Sox spent to within $3,305 of their bonus cap + 5%. They signed 27 draftees and 3 undrafted free agents. 7 HS, 2 JC, 21 college. 16 pitchers, 14 hitters.

Ben Badler, who is pretty much the International prospect guru calls 16 year old Luis Perales the sleeper of the signing period, FB between 90-95, tight-spinning curveball in the mid-70s with chance for it to be a true out pitch.
