Boston had three selections in 2010 and what has transpired gives new meaning to the word disappointment. The first overall selection was right-hand hitting Kolbrin Vitek from Ball State University. Vitek retired after a series of injuries.
Bryce Brentz is now 29-years-old and just may have a last chance at the major league ring after leading the International League in home runs. The right-hand hitting Brentz will be in camp vying for a supporting outfield position.
I really thought Anthony Ranaudo would be a middle of the rotation starter for the Red Sox. The right-hander never got untracked and was traded to Texas for Robbie Ross. Since then Ranaudo has gone to the White Sox organization and last season gave Korea a try.
The 2010 draft was not a total disaster since the second-round selection was right-hander Brandon Workman. Workman arrived in Boston in 2013 and after two less than spectacular seasons underwent TJ surgery. Last season Workman impressed with 33 games and a 3.18 ERA. Workman will be in the hunt for a 2018 bullpen spot with the Red Sox.
