Another Red Sox draftee has agreed to terms, this time it’s the team’s third round pick Sean Coyle coming to terms.
Coyle will earn 1.3 million dollars, which is higher than the MLB average for third round picks by about a million dollars.
A word from Baseball America’s Jim Callis
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.
