Sox sign supplemental pick Price


The Red Sox have agreed to terms with supplemental first round pick RHP Bryan Price (#45 overall) for a reported $849,000 bonus, essentially slot value. The pick the Red Sox used to select Price was awarded as compensation for the departure of type-B free agent RHP Eric Gagne. Price, 21, was a senior draftee out of Rice University where he recorded a 4-4 record with a 3.72 ERA in 48.1 IP over 30 games (one start), allowing 20 ER on 38 hits and striking out 54 batters and issuing 27 walks. His arsenal features a 95 MPH fastball with good movement, a mid-80s hard slider and a third-pitch sinking change. Used as a reliever by the owls, Price is expected to be developed as a starter by the Red Sox.
