Sox sign Speier, Allday, Martin, Grover, Gragani and Romanski



The Red Sox have agreed to contract terms with six more selections from the 2013 draft.

Among the signings are the Red Sox eight, ninth and tenth round selections, which include center fielder Forrestt Allday, right-handed pitcher Kyle Martin and right-handed pitcher Taylor Grover, respectively.

According to Baseball America, the team has also signed left-handed pitcher Gabe Speier (pictured), who was selected in the 19th round out of Dos Pueblos High School in California, Jake Romanski, a catcher out of San Diego State University, and second baseman Reed Gragani, the team's 21st round pick.

The team has also confirmed the signing of 11th-round middle infielder Carlos Asuaje, which was reported by Kiley McDaniel of Fox Sports on Twitter earlier this week.

Speier stands at 6-0 tall and 175-pounds is reported to sit around 90 MPH with his fastball. He is described on MLB.com as having a solid four-pitch mix with the possibility of developing an above-average slider. In Baseball America's  ranking of the top 500 selections in the draft, Speier was ranked as the #265 best choice. 

Speier will receive a signing bonus of $200,000 and Grover has signed for $10,000. Signing bonuses for the other players will be announced as they are released. 

All signees with the exception of Speier have been assigned to the Lowell Spinners. Speier's assignment will be announced when it is released.
