Just three days after the conclusion of the 2013 MLB Draft, the Red Sox have reportedly agreed to terms with two picks from the first 11 rounds: second-round right-hander Teddy Stankiewicz, according to Baseball America, and 11th-round middle infielder Carlos Asuaje, per Kiley McDaniel of Fox Sports on Twitter.
Both deals' official completion is pending physicals.
Stankiewicz, a 6-foot-4, 215-pounder out of Seminole State (Okla.), signed for $1.1 million, BA reported, approximately $130,000 below the 45th overall pick's slot value. He used a mid-90s fastball and low-80s changeup to go with his still-developing curve and slider en route to a 2.52 ERA and 10.4 K/9 rate in 11 games (nine starts) this season.
Asuaje, meanwhile, is in line for a signing bonus of about $100,000, according to McDaniel. For the Division II Nova Southeastern Sharks, the 5-foot-9, 160-pound left-handed batter slashed .320/.441/.449 while stealing 32 bases in 35 tries in 2013. He also drew 38 walks and struck out just 13 times before becoming the 323rd overall pick.
Aside from Stankiewicz and Asuaje, a handful of other draftees are in Boston taking physicals. We will provide information regarding agreements as it becomes available.
