Sox sign Fuentes, expect to ink Inglesias


The Red Sox signed first-round pick Reymond Fuentes last week; they have also come to terms with OF Jeremy Hazelbaker, OF Shannon Wilkerson, C Michael Thomas and 1B Chris McGuiness. That puts them at 16 out of 50 draftees successfully signed.

Boston also expects to sign 19-year old international free agent Jose Iglesias, who is a shortstop with some really impressive defensive ability. The former Cuban player may sign a deal for as much as $8M.

Additional international free agents to sign with the Red Sox are LHP Victor Payano and SS Jose Vicino, both of the Dominican Republic. Payano is receiving a $900k signing bonus as a 16-year old.
