The Boston Red Sox have been know to do their scouting all over the world. And their latest signing shows that effort.
Rob Bradford of WEEI.com confirmed a report from Australia that the Red Sox have signed 17-year-old Daniel McGrath. He will not play in the Red Sox organization this season as he has to finish up school which will end for him next November.
McGrath made 13 appearances for the Melbourne Aces in the Australian Baseball League, going 0-3 with a 6.75 ERA. He had made four appearances last year for the Aces with no record and a 3.86 ERA.
If you watch the video below, you will see that he slightly resembles Jon Lester on the mound.
