According to Baseball America, the Sox have signed 16-year-old center fielder Manuel Marcos to a deal including a bonus worth $800,000.
A 6-foot-1 left-handed hitter, Marcos is considered one of the most athletic Latin American prospects. According to Baseball America's Ben Badler, he possesses fantastic speed, a great arm, and Gold-Glove potential defensive abilities in center field.
The Yankees were also reportedly interested in the young Dominican.
