Red Sox Sign Pat Light

The Red Sox have officially signed supplemental first rounder Pat Light, according to Alex Speier of WEEI.com.  The hard-throwing right-hander out of Monmouth University agreed to a bonus of $1MM, shy of the $1.394MM bonus earmarked for the No. 37 pick.

Light routinely worked in the mid-90s in college and flashed fastballs of 96 mph and better at the end of games last season.  The right-hander posted a 2.40 ERA in his junior year with 102 strikeouts and just 16 walks across 101.1 innings.

The Red Sox also signed second-round pick Jamie Callahan, a hard-throwing right-hander from Dillon High School in South Carolina.  The amount of the 17-year-old's bonus is unknown.
