The Red Sox formally announced yesterday that they had come to terms with 36th round selection, right-hander Pat Goetze, and 26th rounder, shortstop Mauricio Dubon. The announcement additionally verified the signings of fourth-rounder Myles Smith, 30th rounder Nick Longhi, 35th rounder Rafael Olivares, and 39th rounder K.J. Trader. Boston ended up signing 27 of their 40 selections, including 18 of their top 19 picks.
Goetze, who had reportedly signed earlier on Friday, was originally committed to attend Louisburg College. The 6-foot-6 right-hander was homeschooled and played as part of the Wake County Home School Warriors. Goetze missed the entire 2012 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery.
Dubon, originally from Honduras, played his High School ball at Capital Christian in Sacramento, CA. The 18-year-old Dubon shined in the field and at the plate as a senior, hitting .477/.549/.875 with three home runs and 33 RBI in 31 games played. Dubon also flashed some speed on the bases, swiping 28 bases in 34 attempts.
