The Red Sox signed 16-year-old free agent Devers in August 2013. Devers, who ranked sixth overall among the top 50 International prospects, agreed to a $1.5 million deal. According to MLB.com report, he was at the time considered by some scouts to be the best left-handed hitter available on the International market.

MLB.com news announced: “Third baseman Devers, in particular, has been on fire. The left-handed-hitting slugger belted a towering two-run homer in the top of the third that appeared to go over the right-field foul pole. It was part of a 3-for-4 night in which Devers had three RBIs, including a go-ahead single to right in the seventh inning that lifted the Red Sox to a 4-3 victory over the Rays at Tropicana Field.”
