Red Sox Draft: Top five draft picks from team’s current roster
As we approach the 2019 MLB Draft, take a look at the best selections the Red Sox have made through the process over the last decade or so.
The MLB Draft is often overlooked by a number of sports fans. As the majority of players selected don’t get their shot at the majors for a number of years, usually, there seems to be a very small spotlight on baseball’s draft process when compared to the other major sports leagues across the US.
This year, the Red Sox don’t make their selection until the second round (32nd overall pick). However, there’ll be plenty to keep an eye on, regarding the Sox’s draft. Last year, Boston’s first draft pick (26nd overall) turned out to be Triston Casas, a third baseman who’s been performing well at the plate for Single-A Greenville, this season.
As part of BoSox Injection’s build-up to the 2019 MLB Draft, here we’ll revisit the top five picks that the franchise has made, out of the current roster. Boston’s current squad is filled with elite talent that’s been collected in many different ways.
From the free agent signing of a young Xander Bogaerts to the trade for veteran ace Chris Sale, the front office has had to make various different plays to form this current World Series defending roster. Many of the faces on this roster, however, have come organically, through the draft system. We’re going to take a look at the best picks the Sox have made to shape their current team.
