Red Sox net draft pick for Foulke


The Red Sox gained a 2007 supplemental first round draft pick when the Cleveland Indians signed Keith Foulke on Thursday. Presently that pick is slotted as the 53rd overall pick of the draft, but could slide as low as 56 if Ron Villone, Scott Schoeneweis, or Mark Mulder sign with teams other than their respective 2007 organizations. Previously, Boston lost its 2007 first round pick (20th overall) to the Dodgers as compensation for the signing of Julio Lugo. However, the Sox also garnered another supplemental pick (41st overall) for losing Alex Gonzalez to free agency. Boston also possesses the 20th pick in rounds 2 – 50, and does not stand to gain any further picks as the team’s remaining free agents were not offered salary arbitration. Nor should Boston stand to lose any further picks unless the team opts to sign one of the few remaining Type-A free agents.
Editor's Note: As of January 22, the Foulke compensatory pick will be the 54th overall pick of the draft.
