In a statement Wednesday, Red Sox President of Baseball Operations Dave Dombrowski said everyone on the team was "shocked" to hear the news. The former big league infielder served on the Padres' coaching staff a year ago and previously worked with the Astros. He knows the guys. "More importantly, my love for the game, my love for the Boston Red Sox has kind of taken this whole process to another level for me".
Flores already was considered the Red Sox's No. 5 prospect, per MLB.com, and Baseball America's Ben Badler suggested he was the best worldwide catching prospect since Gary Sanchez signed with the New York Yankees back in 2009.
The 17-year old was signed by the Red Sox organization out of Venezuela a few short months ago to a $3.1 million signing bonus. "And I guess more than anything my commitment to the players, my commitment to the pitchers just continues to drive me to be the best".
A MA product, LeVangie has been a Red Sox his entire career, having been drafted by the team in the 14th round of the 1991 MLB Amateur Draft out of American International College, in Mass. Cora said some internal candidates were being considered.
Getting the most out of guys like David Price and Eduardo Rodriguez, coming off hard seasons, will be LeVangie's priority.
