Red Sox, Top Pick Kolbrin Vitek Reach Agreement

The Red Sox have reached an agreement with their first round draft pick Kolbrin Vitek, per a Keith Law tweet. If all goes well with his physical, Vitek should be signed and hopefully playing short-season ball before too long.

While it’s good to get these deals done, Vitek was never really in doubt. It wasn’t long after the Red Sox made their pick that word started to spread that the team already had a verbal agreement in place. Supplemental pick Bryce Brentz and third rounder Sean Coyle are also rumored to be all-but-signed.

More questionable are players like Anthony Ranaudo and Garrin Cecchini, who will play summer ball before they sit down to negotiate, and Brandon Workman, who let teams know he would not be signing for supplemental or second round slot money.
