According to Alex Speier of WEEI.com, the Red Sox have agreed to terms with 2009 first-round draft choice Reymond Fuentes on a signing bonus worth approximately $1.13 million, a figure reportedly slightly above the slot recommendation provided by the Commissioner's Office. Fuentes, who has already passed a physical and drug test, has been be assigned the Gulf Coast League Red Sox. A speedy outfielder out of Fernando Callejo High School in Puerto Rico, Fuentes was the Red Sox' first selection in the 2009 draft and the twenty-eighth player chosen overall. The 18-year-old left-handed hitter had an excellent senior season with Fernando Callejo, hitting .424/.620/1.091 with 3 doubles, 5 triples, 3 home runs, and 9 steals in only 33 at-bats. He is the cousin of Mets outfielder Carlos Beltrán.
