Red Sox Agree To Terms With David Renfroe

Jim Callis of Baseball America reports that the Red Sox have agreed to terms with third round pick David Renfroe on a $1.4MM deal. A star quarterback in high school, Renfroe's bonus will be spread over five years under MLB's provisions for two sport athletes. Callis says the net present value of the deal is under the $1.134MM Boston gave first rounder Reymond Fuentes.

Selected 107th overall, the deal is worth considerably more than MLB's slot recommendation of $294,300. Callis says Renfroe is "a polished hitter with solid power and a plus arm that delivered fastballs that topped out at 95 mph."
