    Since the first post on this thread I have post about the lack, the need of LHP. The Sox seems to be trying to fix that issue with drafting Henry Owens with their first sandwich selection, Cody Kukuk in the 7th Rd, Jarrett Brown with the 23th rd selection, Shawn Dartnell in the 34th rd, Jordan Gross in the 40th rd and drafting and signing Miguel Pena (6th rd) Kevin Brahney (11th Rd who projects as a reliever) with Zachery Good who also projects as a reliever its also close to be signing. However Brown, Dartnell and Gross aren't likely to sign profesional contracts.
    Baseball America is reporting that Zach Good signed with the Red Sox for a $140,000 signing bonus.

      • There's talk that RHP Noe Ramirez (4th Rd pick) and the Red Sox have come to a agreement, when it becomes official it will be the 16th draft pick by the Sox who have signed, with Ramirez being the highest selection who have signed.

        After the scrimage game at Fenway draft picks will be going to play at Summer leagues where they will be followed by Red Sox scouts, there probably won't be anymore signings until the August 16th deadline day. Two players who didn't go to Fenway was catcher Blake Swihart and outfielderSenquez Golson making their signing very unlikely.

        • Weei is reporting that the Red Sox have signed their second round selection Dominican outfielder William Jerez. Jerez who played H.S. baseball the last 2 years in New York is 6-4 190 (reportly) a left hitter, thrower and 19 yrs.

          • Reports are that the Red Sox have signed their 10th round selection outfielder Cody Koback.

            • There's talk (not confirmed) that the Red Sox have signed (pending a physical) their 30th rd selection third baseman Nick Moore out of the high school ranks of Georgia.

              • The Red Sox have signed their third round selection High school (Georgia) catcher Jordan Weems. There's also reports that LHP Cody Kukuk (Sox's 7th rd pick) and catcher Mattew Martin (Sox's 44th rd selection) have signed. Both are H.S. players Kukuk from Kansas and Martin from Florida.

                • The 2011 MLB draft dead line for signing draftees is next Monday (August 15 at midnight) Reports out of Boston is that Red Sox second selection in the first round catcher Blake Swihart (perhaps the draft's most unlikely to sign) took batting practice in Fenway this past week. If the Sox don't sign Swihart they will the same selection in the 2012 draft, however the 2012 draft at this time looks as the weakest in years.

                  The Red Sox signed their 41th rd selection Maryland U outfielder Matt Marquis. Maquis was also drafted by the Red Sox in 2007 a highly regard prospect out of New Jersey's high school. In 2007 was one of the top power hitters coming out of high school who instead of signing with the Red Sox choose to attend college. In college (the last 2 years at Maryland) Marquis struggle perhaps because of health reason to both parents.

                  PS Marquis is playing in the GCL and his first profesional hit was a HR.

                  • Weei is reporting that the Red Sox have signed their 29th rd selection RHP Matt Spalding. Spalding who is 6-0 190 signed for a $275,000 bonus has + fastball and there are reports that it touched 95 in HS (Kentucky in 2011)

                    Also there is a rumour tonight that the Red Sox have reach a agreement with Mississippi H.S.Senquez Golmoz Red Sox 8th round selection. I am trying to find out if it is valid.

                      While not official the rumour seems to have legs, by the way its abit more than 36 hours from the 11.59 PM (on 8/15) from the deadline.

                      • Its less than 12 hours before the MLB draft signing deadline.

                        • BA is reporting that the Red Sox have signed their fourth Rd selection Cal St Fullerton St RHP Noe Ramirez for a $625,000 signing bonus, however the signing of Ramirez who is represented by Scott Boras has been speculated for a while.

                          By the way is getting close to 3 hours (11.59 PM) away from the deadline.

                            PS Is 1 1/2 Hr before the dead line.

                            • Looks like 8th round pick Senquez Golson didn't sign after all. He was always thought as unlikely to sign right until news broke that he was flying to Boston taking physicals at Fenway. Other than Golson, out of the Sox' first 15 round picks only Deshorn Lake didn't sign. That means the Sox signed all of their first 10 picks and 16 out of their first 18! Those include Matt Barnes (1), Blake Swihart (1) who got the biggest Bonus from the Red Sox (2.5m), Henry Owens (1s), Jackie Bradley (1s), Williams Jerez (2), Jordan Weems (3), Noe Ramirez (4), Mookie Betts (5), Miguel Pena (6), Cody Kukuk (7), Travis Shaw (9), Cody Koback (10), Kevin Brahney (11), and more.

                              The Sox spent an estimated 11m on this year's draft class, about the same as in past years (slightly more actually). It's a good haul from a deep draft. Meanwhile the Yankees failed to sign their 2nd round pick who wasn't even on the BA top 100. weird. This xear's first pick overall, Gerrit Cole who previously turned down the Yankees signed an mlb contract that includes a record 8m signing bonus. Alex Meyer who turned down an estimated 2m from the Red Sox in 2008 signed for 2m with the Nats.

                              And apparently Tyler Beede elected not to sign with the Jays, turning down 2m. It's fascinating to see such a young guy pass on 2 million dollars and a professional career. I can't even begin to know how difficult a decision like that must be.

                              Some more info on the draftees signed yesterday, courtesy od weei: link

                              Watching Derek Jeter make 40 defensive plays and then watching Adam Everett make 40 defensive plays at the same position is sort of like watching video of Barbara Bush dancing at the White House, and then watching Demi Moore dancing in Striptease. (Bill James)

                              Dustin Pedroia doesn't have the strength or bat speed to hit major-league pitching consistently, and he has no power. If he can continue to hit .260 or so, he'll be useful, and he probably has a future as a backup infielder. (Keith Law)

                              • Scaff, how would you rate the 2011 Red Sox draft now that we know who signed? And where would you put the new guys on your prospect rankings. Barnes and Swihart in the 10-15 range (too low?)? What do you think about Bradley and Kukuk?
