The Sacramento Bee is reporting today that UW signee Shaq Thompson has signed with the Red Sox, who drafted him in the 18th round earlier this month.
Here’s the story.
As I detailed last week, Thompson can sign and play pro baseball while remaining on scholarship at UW, which he says he intends to do.
The Sac Bee story says Thompson will play for the Red Sox entry in the Gulf Coast League — here’s that schedule.
While the season runs deep into August, Thompson has said he would report to UW in time for the beginning of fall camp (expected to be Aug. 6).
