2010 draft order set


The order of the 2010 amateur draft is set now that Rod Barajas, the last of this year’s compensation free agents, has signed a major league deal with the New York Mets. The Red Sox will pick 20th overall (first round), 36th (supplemental round), 39th (supplemental round), 57th (second round), 110th (third round), and 28th in all subsequent rounds. Each of Boston’s first four picks are compensation picks, the 20th and the 39th for losing Billy Wagner to the Atlanta Braves, and the 36th and the 57th for losing Jason Bay to the New York Mets. The Sox also lost two picks the 29th overall pick to the Angels for signing John Lackey and the 80th overall pick to the Blue Jays for signing Marco Scutaro. The 20th overall pick will be the highest pick the Red Sox have had in seven years, since the team drafted David Murphy 17th overall in 2003.
