UPDATE: Sox Sign First Round Pick Trey Ball

Top Sox Pick Trey Ball
UPDATE-Jon Heyman: Red Sox Sign Trey Ball's Alex Speier reports that Boston's first pick in this year's MLB Draft, Trey Ball, is set to sign with the club as early as today. The #7 overall pick is a left-handed high school pitcher out of Indiana. Ball is expected to sign below the $3.246 million slot number—which (in conjunction with other savings) will allow the Red Sox to sign their third round pick (catching prospect Jon Denney) at a higher amount that his slot allotment. Ball showed mid-90s velocity and a minuscule ERA (0.76) in his senior year—all in a New England-like climate.
