Sox select David Renfroe in the Third Round


With their third round selection, number 108 overall, the Red Sox selected SS/RHP David Renfroe out of South Panola High School (MS), their last selection of day one and their first true "signability" pick. PG Crosschecker had ranked Renfroe the 33rd overall prospect in the 2009 draft and Baseball America rated him 67th. Like last year's first-round pick, Casey Kelly, Renfroe was a two-way player in high school who has stated his desire to be an everyday player and remain at shortstop. Renfroe is polished at the plate with a good swing, having posted a .509 batting average during his senior season, and can hit for average power. He has soft hands and a strong arm in the field and possesses good athleticism. As a pitcher, his fastball sits at 88-92 MPH, topping out at 95, and he also throws a breaking ball and a change-up, but both are less consistent than his fastball. He has committed to play baseball at Ole Miss, his father's alma mater.
