CHICAGO (AP) — General manager Rick Hahn says the Chicago White Sox have a "positive history" with agent Scott Boras, and he thinks they will be able to work together again when it comes to top draft pick Carlos Rodon.
The White Sox made Rodon the No. 3 overall selection on Thursday night. The 6-foot-3 left-hander from North Carolina State was widely regarded as the top college pitcher available and had been in the mix to go No. 1 overall. He followed a dominant sophomore year with a solid but not spectacular junior season.
Making his first public comments since the draft, Hahn cited his experience with other current or former White Sox players represented by Boras as a reason to believe the super agent will not be an issue when it comes to reaching a deal with Rodon. The deadline for signing amateur draft picks is July 18.
