Red Sox select Jordan Wren with their tenth-round pick


With their tenth-round pick (311th overall) in the 2017 MLB First-Year Player Draft, the Red Sox have selected Jordan Wren, an outfielder from Georgia Southern University. Wren, a 6-foot-1, 185-pound left-handed hitter, played primarily in right field in 55 games as a senior for the Eagles.

Wren hit .268/.383/.459 in 194 at-bats for Georgia Southern this year with six home runs, 42 RBI and 24 runs scored. 

Wren is the son of Red Sox Senior VP of Baseball Operations, Frank Wren, and brother of Milwaukee Brewers Triple-A prospect, Kyle Wren. He was also selected by the Red Sox in the 36th round of last year's draft.

Given his connection to the Red Sox organization, Wren is expected to sign for below slot.
