While the MLB Draft doesn’t get the attention of the NFL or NBA’s version, it works in a similar way with countless mocks flooding in ahead of the 3-day event.
The Red Sox have the 14th overall pick in 2023 and have already been connected to a number of shortstops with strong hit tools. Not too surprising considering their selections of Nick Yorke, Marcelo Mayer, and Mikey Romero the last 3 years. Clearly a profile they like.
Just a reminder, you don’t pick for need in the MLB Draft. It’s about taking the best talent available. Shortstops often offer the most athleticism and versatility on the board, creating a wider range of opportunities for a player as he develops.
Here are 5 names being linked to the Red Sox right now through the outlets that cover the draft more than anyone.
