The Red Sox still haven't signed any of their top four picks and are trying to persuade eighth-rounder Senquez Golson to accept a seven-figure deal that would curtail his football career, but they have gotten their first deal done on deadline day. Boston signed fourth-rounder Noe Ramirez for $625,000–more than three times MLB's $180,000 recommendation for the No. 142 selection.
A Cal State Fullerton righthander, Ramirez had as good a changeup as any pitcher in the 2011 draft. He sets it up with a fastball that sits at 88-91 mph and tops out at 93, and also has a solid slider and very good feel for pitching. He went 29-7, 2.57 in three seasons with the Titans.
