  • Round 2C, 79th overall: OF Roman Anthony, Marjory Stoneman Douglas HS (FL)

    With their third and final pick of the first day of the draft, the Red Sox took another high school player in Anthony.

At 6-foot, 210 pounds as a high school senior, he likely will continue significantly improve in those regards as he grows into his frame.
