Promising Red Sox prospect dies at 17”

Red Sox catching prospect Daniel Flores died Wednesday of complications from cancer, according to team president/CEO Sam Kennedy.

"Every member of our organization who got to know Daniel absolutely loved him", said senior vice president/assistant GM Eddie Romero. The exact diagnosis has not been revealed due to HIPAA (The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) laws and out of respect for Flores' family.

Flores signed with the Boston Red Sox on July 2, garnering a life-changing $3.1 million signing bonus.

Flores was the top catching prospect for the Red Sox and signed with the team just four months ago out of Venezuela.

"Salvador Pérez is my idol", he said, as reported by El Nacional. MLB.com quickly ranked him the No. 5 prospect in the Red Sox farm system, calling him "one of the best defensive catchers amateur scouts have seen in years".

A highly regarded prospect in the Boston Red Sox organization has passed away.

Flores described his journey to the Major League Baseball at the press conference, expressing gratitude to his family for encouraging him to stick with what he loved. "Since I left Porlamar I always knew that this is what I wanted, although I do not deny that it was hard to leave my family".

Baseball America's Ben Badler dubbed the Venezuelan the best worldwide catching prospect since Gary Sanchez signed with the Yankees on July 2, 2009.
