Nine former Red Sox draftees selected in 2015 Draft


MLB teams combined to select nine previous Red Sox draftees in the 2015 June draft, the fourth year in a row that number has dropped. Notable selections included Alex Bregman and Carson Fulmer, both of whom were taken in the first round, going second and eighth, respectively. The Red Sox themselves re-drafted Max Watt, a right-handed pitcher out of Lynn University who they had previously selected in the 2013 draft. Watt is the first player Boston has drafted twice since Reed Gragnani, who was taken in both 2009 and 2013. See below for the complete listing of former Sox selections who were re-drafted this week.
