Red Sox sign six international free agents

Daisuke Matsuzaka and Hideki Okajima are not the only international players the Red Sox signed this off-season. Since the end of the 2006 season, Boston has signed six international amateurs: RHP Randy Consuegra from Colombia (pictured, left), RHP Alberto Gonzalez and C Maykol Sanchez from Venezuela, 1B Eddy Lora and LHP Ernesto Reyes from the Dominican, and RHP Dennis Neuman from Curacao. Not a great deal of information is available about these players, except that Consuegra got a $100,000 signing bonus after receiving competing offers from the Mets, Mariners, and Twins. His fastball sits in the low 90s, and he also possesses a good changeup and curveball. He is the godson of Edgar Renteria. Additionally, some locals may be familiar with Dennis Neuman, a former star of the Little League World Series for the Netherlands Antilles, who shut down the Worcester, MA team in the 2002 consolation game. The Red Sox landed Neuman after he also received offers from the Dodgers, Pirates, and Braves.
