The Red Sox have reportedly reached an agreement with one of the most athletic prospects in this year's international class.
The New York Yankees and free agent second baseman DJ LeMahieu are finalizing a new contract, MLB Network’s Jon Morosi reported Friday. The Red Sox reached out to LeMahieu earlier this offseason, Yahoo’s Tim Brown reported earlier this week, although it was never likely LeMahieu would sign with Boston because he is attached to a qualifying offer.
As is typical around this time, MLB Network is taking inventory of players and putting together lists of the stars position by position. In this series various analysts along with “The Shredder,” which is a projection-based system put together by MLB’s research team, rank players at every position. On The Shredder’s top center fielders list is none other then Alex Verdugo at number four!
