ESPNBoston: Draft Day 3 Recap


Day 3 marked the end of the MLB draft, and a full 30 picks were made by the Boston Red Sox. Among those picks are several high-upside prospects, many of whom won't end up signing, along with other serviceable prospects who may not get much hype but can play an important role in the system.

One theme we saw early for the Red Sox was picking guys who have fallen due to injury, likely as a way to get players with upside who won't require large over-slot bonuses to sign. In fact, their first three picks on the day fall into this category: RHP Karsten Whitson, LHP Jalen Beeks, and RHP Chandler Shepherd.
