    It should be noted that the Red Sox transactions do not list Yusniel Padron-Artiles. They do list the other 24 draftees they have signed.

    The Red Sox also signed UDFA Kevin Biondic from Maryland. 2nd Team Big Ten All-Star this season as a utility player – first base and pitcher. The Red Sox have him listed as a pitcher on the Lowell Spinners.

    If the signing bonuses at MLB.com are accurate and depending on how much of a bonus Marrero got, the Red Sox should have between 200 and 300K (keeping under the 5% overage threshold) extra to attempt to sweeten the signing bonuses for the other 15 or 16 draftees... all of whom have college eligibility left.

    Just checked the transactions... They now have Padron-Artiles signed as of today.

    So 25 of 40 signed.

    Casas, Northcutt, and Milligan debuted today in the GCL.

    Seth Beer has 4 HR in 9 games. Hope that pick doesn’t haunt us.

    What level did he start at?


    Edit: class A, right?

    Speaking of fast starts, when is Boston going to pitch Durbin Feltman? I thought they were going to fast track him.

    Seriously? this years draft and the Ball draft are not even remotely similar..

    If I remember correctly Seth Beer had defensive concerns and questions on if he could do well with a wood bat....


    Also.. Its been 9 games, the definition of SSS

    There was much speculation that the Red Sox could fast track him and that he might be able to help the MLB club by September.

    None of that speculation, as far as I know, came from the Red Sox camp.

    Of the Red Sox signed pitching draft picks, only Brian Brown and Andrew "Scritti" Politi have debuted. Which means both Feltman and Thad Ward (3rd and 5th picks) as well as Eddie Jimenez (18th), Yusniel Padron-Artiles (22nd), Logan Browning (24th), and Kris Jackson (28th) have not debuted. Seems like an organizational approach.

    As for Casas vs. Beers... color me surprised that a college player can hit some home runs in short-season A Ball. I'm pretty sure the Red Sox are looking longer term than right now with the pick. (It still might fail. The Draft is nothing if not a crapshoot.)

    Not comparing him to the Ball draft. But up thread I think one of the experts (Law?) was questioning his power hit tool. Obviously seeing pitching at that level is probably less than ACC Friday night guys, but thought it was interesting he was off to a fast start. And, if he didn’t have the issues with defensive position, I doubt he drops that far. The hit tool isn’t going to hold him back IMO.

    Red Sox 1st round pick Triston Casas underwent successful ulnar collateral ligament repair surgery on his right thumb yesterday. Sox say he should be ready for 2019.

    On Deadline day (Friday the 6th), the Red Sox agreed to terms with Chase Shugart (12th) and Chris Machemer (16th). Which means the Red Sox signed 26 of the top 28 picks (Nick Lucky (14) and Kason Howell (20) the missing two) and 28 overall of 40. Both of which are rather impressive.
