2016 Draft Recap: How Boston's picks ranked


The Red Sox kicked off the 2016 amateur draft with a bang, selecting top high school pitcher Jason Groome with the 12th overall pick. While Groome was a talent they simply could not pass up, the team proceeded to focus primarily on collegiate players, including six seniors as they'll try to save funds on under-slot deals in order to sign their first rounder. The club's nine high school selections is up one from the 2015 draft, but still far lower than the 19 and 14 they selected in 2013 and 2014, respectively.

Of the team's 40 total selections, 15 were ranked in the Baseball America Top 500, 17 in the Perfect Game Top 500, and 12 in the MLB.com Top 200 list. 19 Red Sox selections appeared in at least one of the lists, three more than in 2015.
