The Red Sox signed third baseman Rafael Devers from the Dominican Republic and lefthander Emmanuel DeJesus of Venezuela on Tuesday, the first day of the international signing period.
Devers received $1.5 million and DeJesus a bonus of $780,000, according to reports from
ESPN Deportes and MLB.com, respectively.
The 16-year-old Devers is a lefthanded hitter who was generally ranked as one of the top five prospects in this international class.
The Red Sox have a cap of $3.17 million for international players. Under new rules, teams can trade international “bonus slots.” So theoretically, the Sox could obtain more money.
