BOSTON, MA - The Boston Red Sox have signed four additional players selected in the 2015 June Draft. 

Director of Amateur Scouting Mike Rikard made the announcement.

The signings include outfielder Tate Matheny (4th round), outfielder Jagger Rusconi (5th round), left-handed pitcher Logan Allen (8th round), and right-handed pitcher Nick Duron (31st round).

Matheny, a junior at Missouri State University, hit .291 (68-for-234) with 45 runs scored, 18 doubles, two triples, five home runs, 43 RBI, and 37 walks for a .417 on-base percentage in 61 games for the Bears this season. A Baseball America pre-season All-American, he went on to lead the team with 12 stolen bases in 14 attempts and rank among Missouri Valley Conference leaders in doubles (5th), walks (8th), and RBI (9th). The son of current St. Louis Cardinals manager and 13-year major league catcher Mike Matheny, Tate was selected by the Cardinals in the 23rd round of the 2012 June Draft but did not sign.

In all, 14 of the 39 players selected by Boston in the 2015 June Draft have been signed to contracts.
