Sox select Branden Kline in the Sixth Round


In the sixth round of the 2009 First-Year Player Draft with the 198th pick overall, the Red Sox selected high school pitcher Branden Kline out of Governor Thomas Johnson High School in Frederick, Maryland. The 6’3”, 185-pound righthander, who is committed to play at Virginia, sits in the high 80’s/low 90’s with his fastball, and touched 95 mph during the spring. In 41 innings his senior season, Kline allowed just three runs and 16 hits, striking out 79 batters and going 6-1. Kline is said to be strongly leaning toward attending UVA, and he has been quoted as saying it could take over $5 million to buy him out of that commitment.
