Tenth-round pick Jacobs agrees to terms

According to Jim Callis of Baseball America, the Red Sox and 2009 tenth-round draft pick Brandon Jacobs have agreed to terms on a signing bonus worth a reported $750,000, a figure $600,000 higher than the slot recommendation of the MLB commissioner's office. A raw hitter at the plate, Jacobs possesses a powerful bat with big-time home run potential. As an outfielder, he has quick acceleration and his speed is above average, but he has a below-average arm. Jacobs had been committed to Auburn, where he was to play both football (as a running back) and baseball. As a senior at Parkview High School in Georgia, Jacobs hit .511 with seven home runs and 16 runs batted in.
