The Boston Red Sox added 18-year-old infielder Nick Yorke, their first-round pick in June's draft, to the 60-man player pool on Thursday.
Yorke was the 17th overall pick out of Archbishop Mitty High School in San Jose, Calif.
A right-handed hitter, Yorke played shortstop and second base and batted a combined .503 over his last three prep seasons.
He had committed to play at the University of Arizona before signing with Boston in July for a reported $2.7 million bonus.
In a corresponding transaction, the Red Sox removed right-hander Colten Brewer from the pool. He remains on the 45-day injured list with a strain of his right middle finger.
