Sox agree to terms with eleventh-round pick Thompson

According to Jim Callis of Baseball America, the Red Sox have agreed to terms with eleventh-round choice Jason Thompson on a signing bonus worth $300,000. Thompson, a shortstop out of Germantown High School in Tennessee, had committed to Louisville. During his senior season, the switch-hitting Thompson hit .414 with 5 home runs and 26 RBI. He was Baseball America's top-rated high school position player in the state of Tennessee and was also selected to participate in the Aflac All-American Classic. An athletic infielder with above-average speed, a reliable glove, and excellent arm strength, Thompson hits to all fields with gap power and could develop more power down the line.
