The Red Sox have agreed to terms with third-round pick Sean Coyle for $1.3 million. That's more than $1 million above MLB's recommended bonus of $279,900 for the No. 110 slot, and could be the first over several seven-figure deals for Boston today. The Red Sox also are trying to close deals with sandwich-rounder Anthony Ranaudo, second-rounder Brandon Workman and fourth-rounder Garin Cecchini.
A shortstop from Germantown Academy in Fort Washington, Pa., Coyle is a 5-foot-8, 175-pounder who plays bigger than his size and projects as a second baseman in the mold of Brian Roberts. He has plus speed and good instincts on the bases, as well as surprising power and a competitive makeup. He had committed to North Carolina, where his brother Tommy is the starting second baseman.
