According to a report from Stuff.co.nz, 17-year-old New Zealand softball catcher Te Wera Bishop has signed with the Red Sox.
"We have been impressed by his abilities behind the plate, he has excellent hands and a strong throwing arm, and with instruction from our Boston Red Sox coaches, we are confident he can make the appropriate changes from softball to baseball," Red Sox scout Jon Deeble told the website.
The report suggests that Bishop — who tried out for several major league teams last month — will attend the Australian MLB Academy in June. He is expected to sign a contract with the Red Sox on Wednesday.
"I don't know what to expect. I'm just over the moon," Bishop said.
