The Red Sox first round selected and only first-round selection in 2009 was Reymond Fuentes. As a 19-year-old playing for Greenville Fuentes showed his promise and especially his speed as in 42 steals in just 47 attempts. Fuentes – a left-hand hitter – hit .270 and became part of the package for Gonzalez.
In the Padres organization, the fleet-footed outfielder made his MLB debut in 2013 but hit a very unimpressive .152 in just 23 games. Back to the minors for a larger dose of seasoning. The Padres traded Fuentes to the Royals after the 2014 season and Eventually, Fuentes had a 13-game spin with KC in 2016 before being released.
Fuentes signed with the Diamondbacks and split his 2017 season between Reno (AAA) and the MLB club. At Reno Fuentes hit .343 and had 13 steals in 14 attempts, but at Phoenix, his average dropped to .235. At this stage Fuentes being labeled a “4A” player may be appropriate.
Alex Wilson was also part of the 2009 draft class as a second-round selection. The right-handed Wilson became part of the deal with the Tigers for Yoenis Cespedes. With Detroit, Wilson has been a solid bullpen contributor for three years with a 3.15 ERA in 187 games. Wilson is also noted as being born in Saudi Arabia.
