Red Sox Reportedly Sign Second-Round Pick Brandon Workman, Third-Rounder Sean Coyle

Brandon Workman, a pitcher from Texas whom the Red Sox took in the second round (the 57th overall pick) of the 2010 MLB Draft, has reportedly agreed to a deal with an $800,000 bonus with Boston (exceeding the recommended $634,500 for the No. 57 pick), this according to WEEI's Alex Speier.

The agreement was finalized after a call between the Red Sox and Workman's represenatives on a 2 p.m. call, with the player coming down from his asking price of $1.25 million and the Sox coming up from the MLB's suggested slot of approximately $634,000. He will begin his professional career in the coming days, reporting to Fort Myers.

Additionally, Boston came to an agreement with third-round pick Sean Coyle for a reported $1.3 million (roughly one million more than baseball's "recommended bonus" for a player drafted with the No. 110 pick). Coyle is a shortstop from Germantown Academy in Fort Washington, Pa.; he was a member of USA Baseball's 18-and-under team and had signed to play at the University of North Carolina.

The Red Sox reportedly also reached a deal with an eighth-round pick, Matthew Price, a right-handed pitcher from Virginia Tech (he was a 34th-round selection of Atlanta Braves in 2008, but did not sign).

On Monday, the deadline for signing 2010 draft picks, the Red Sox also reportedly locked-up OF Lucas LeBlan (pick No. 353) and are close to signing Garin Cecchini, a high school shortstop they took in the fourth round.
