Second top independent player inked


The Red Sox have signed their second independent player in as many days, purchasing the contract of catcher Dennis Blackmon of the Joliet Jackhammers of the Northern League. Blackmon, a 24-year-old right-handed hitter, was ranked as the #5 independent league prospect by Baseball America, and grades out above average defensively, with a very strong throwing arm. He hit .289/.352/.426 (.778 OPS) with 10 doubles, one triple and nine HR in 289 AB (37 K/28 BB) over 81 games with Joliet in 2007.
