Former University of Hawaii pitcher Jeremy Wu-Yelland has signed with the Boston Red Sox.

The fourth-round selection in last month’s MLB Draft signed for a bonus of $200,000 according to MLB.com’s Jim Callis.

Wu-Yelland received significantly less than the $487,900 recommended slot value at pick No. 118.

The Spokane, Washington native led UH in appearances during the shortened spring season, where he posted a 0.69 ERA with 16 strikeouts in 13 innings over seven games.
