Sox select Madison Younginer in the Seventh Round


In the seventh round of the 2009 First-Year Player Draft, using the 228th overall pick, the Red Sox have selected righthander Madison Younginer out of Mauldin High School in Simpsonville, South Carolina. After going 5-0 with a 1.51 ERA with 33 strikeouts in 19 innings this season as a relief pitcher for Mauldin High, Younginer was rated the 45th-best prospect by Baseball America for this year's draft. He has been recruited by Clemson as both a hitter and pitcher. Younginer is athletic, possessing a fastball that sits in the mid-90's that can touch 97 and a power breaking ball that both project as plus pitches. He has the pure stuff to have gone in the first round this year, and at 6'3" and 190 pounds, he has room to fill out and add more velocity to his fastball.
