Red Sox select Tanner Houck with 24th overall pick

Red Sox select Tanner Houck with 24th overall pick

The all-America Burger is only a junior. Instead, he was taken by the Boston Red Sox with the 24th overall selection.

When is comes to Keston Hiura, he has had a connection with the Sox for a long time.

"Though he went homerless with the USA college national team during the summer, scouts still recognize Burger as one of the top power sources available in a draft class short on college hitters". However, the cons are that his defense comes first before his bat. Advance Rookie Great Falls is also a possibility, he said. But it's especially true right now for the Red Sox, who entering Monday are 28th in the major leagues with just 58 home runs. The team knows that he has earned a name for himself, and he can surely get his fastball towards the mid-90s. He was named SEC Player of the Week twice during the 2016 campaign.

Baseball America pegged Houck as the 22nd-best prospect available, while Pipeline ranked him 20th, MinorLeagueBall had him 25th and Scout.com had him 24th - all more or less in line with the Red Sox' draft position.

After helping lead the Bears to a pair of Missouri Valley Conference titles and two NCAA Regional crowns in his three-year career, Burger becomes the Bears' highest overall draftee since the Washington Nationals selected Ross Detwiler with the sixth overall pick of the 2007 Draft.

Of course, one would assume that starting pitching and power bats would be at the top of any team's list. Houch has the potential to hit the high-90s, but surprisingly the velocity has not remained constant. This year, Dombrowski may be interested in getting more immediate help from players who have had some seasoning at the college level. With all the mock drafts these five players could be one of the potential stars to play for the Red Sox.
