The Red Sox have offered Greensburg (Ind.) High righthander Alex Meyer a $2 million bonus, but that offer has been pulled from the table and no deal is expected to be reached before tonight’s 11:59 EDT deadline. Meyer, a consensus first-round talent who slipped to the 20th round because teams didn’t believe he could be diverted from a commitment to Kentucky, apparently will become a Wildcat.
If Meyer had signed for $2 million, it would have set a new bonus record for a player drafted after the third round.
Boston, however, is expected to announce the signings of athletic outfielders Pete Hissey (fourth round) and Ryan Westmoreland (fifth) later this evening.
