Red Sox select Tyler Barnette in the ninth round


With their ninth-round selection, 193rd overall, the Red Sox selected Tyler Barnette, a right-handed pitcher out of Hickory High School in North Carolina. He is listed at 6'3" and 190 pounds.

Barnette, 18, sits 87-91 with his fastball and also features a developing breaking ball. He is known as a pitcher who pounds the zone with his fastball, but has trouble with control of his curveball. Barnette sports an easy delivery. He should be able to pack more muscle onto his frame, and possibly add fastball velocity as he matures.
