The Red Sox have signed their 11th round pick Lucas LeBlanc away from LSU just 12 hours before the signing deadline.
LeBlanc is an unexpected signing, having already turned down a large offer from the Sox. While there’s no information on the specifics of his bonus yet, something around Kendrick Perkins’ $600,000 bonus isn’t unreasonable.
LeBlanc’s signing came as a surprise, with all signs pointing towards his attending LSU. It’s possible this is bad news for the Sox’ chances to sign another high-cost pick.
