The Red Sox have signed 26th-round pick Miles Head for $335,000, more than double MLB’s recommended $150,000 maximum for selections after the fifth round.
A third baseman from Whitewater High (Fayetteville, Ga.), Head was the best high school hitter in the state of Georgia this year. His position is somewhat in question, but he makes consistent contact with a short stroke and offers promising power. He had committed to Georgia.
Boston is close to completing deals with third-rounder David Renfroe and seventh-rounder Madison Younginer, but neither has been finalized yet. Renfroe is expected to get a bonus of roughly $1.5 million (spread over multiple years under MLB provisions for two-sport athletes), while Younginer is expected to receive a bonus slightly under $1 million.
