The Red Sox, already in the max penalty spending range for the 2014-15 international signing period, have signed Dominican shortstop Elwin Tejada for $300,000. Tejada, 16, has a long, ultra thin frame at 6-foot-2, 150 pounds. He has a solid righthanded swing and a high baseball acumen that stands out more than his raw tools. He can play shortstop for now, though he might have to move off the position depending where he goes physically. Tejada played in the Dominican Prospect League.
Earlier today the Red Sox also signed Venezuelan righthander Anderson Espinoza for $1.8 million and Dominican righthander Christopher Acosta for $1.5 million.
