Red Sox announce international signings


The Red Sox announced the signing of four 16-year-old international prospects: third baseman Rafael Devers (Dominican Republic), lefthander Enmanuel DeJesus (Venezuela), lefthander Jhonathan Diaz (Venezuela) and center fielder Yoan Aybar (Dominican Republic).

Devers, who signed for $1.5 million, is the prize of the group. Scouts have been impressed with his power and approach at the plate. But obviously trying to project what kind of player a 16-year-old will be in five years is lots of guesswork.

Devers played in the International Prospect League and they posted this photo on Twitter.
