Top pick Trey Ball to debut today


Trey Ball, the seventh overall pick in the 2013 draft, will make his professional debut this afternoon for the Gulf Coast League Red Sox. The left-handed pitcher gets the start in a 12:00 noon game against the GCL Rays.

Ball, 19, starred at New Castle (IN) High School, where he was named the USA Today High School Player of the Year and a Rawlings First-Team All-American. The highest selection by Boston since Trot Nixon was also taken seventh back in 1993, Ball received a signing bonus of $2.75 million. At 6-foot-6, 190 pounds, Ball throws a fastball that touches 95, which he complements with a changeup that has plus potential, and a curve in the 74-78 range.
