11 former Red Sox draftees selected in 2016 Draft

MLB teams combined to select 11 previous Red Sox draftees in the 2016 June draft. This is up from nine in 2015, ending a four year streak of that number declining. For the second year in a row, the Red Sox themselves drafted Nick Lovullo, a shortstop at Holy Cross and the son of Red Sox bench coach Torey Lovullo. Other notable selections include Nebraska's Ryan Boldt and Vanderbilt's Jordan Sheffield,  two top high school players in the 2013 draft that Boston tried to pry away from their commitments. See below for a complete listing of former Sox selections who were re-drafted this year.
