ESPN Boston: Draft Day 1 Recap

As far as SoxProspects.com is concerned, the Red Sox cleaned up on Day 1 of the MLB draft, given the plays available at the club's respective draft slots. The team drafted three well-regarded prospects on Thursday evening in prep infielder Michael Chavis, high school pitcher Michael Kopech and college first baseman Sam Travis. 

With the 26th pick of the first round, Boston selected Chavis out of Sprayberry High School in Marietta, Georgia. Chavis was one of the top players available when the Red Sox came on the clock and is generally considered among the top high school hitters in the 2014 draft class.
