The Red Sox have signed first-round pick Brian Johnson for $1,575,000.
Johnson was a two-way standout at Florida, where he appeared in three College World Series in three seasons. Boston drafted him as a lefthanded pitcher, and on the mound he throws strikes with four pitches. He also offers intriguing lefthanded power as a first baseman.
Johnson's bonus matches the assigned value for his No. 31 overall selection.
