Red Sox Interested In LH-Hitting Venezuelan OF

Freddy Rodriguez
According to Baseball America's Ben Badler, the Red Sox are focused on a Venezuelan outfielder in the upcoming July 12th international prospects draft. Reportedly, Boston is keen on Freddy Rodriguez, who projects as a center fielder. The left-hand hitting Rodriguez has been clocked at 6.8 seconds in the 60-yard dash and currently attends Carlos Guillen's baseball academy. Targeting a reasonably mature center field prospect (not to mention the progress of Jackie Bradley, Jr.) might say a lot about the team's likelihood of keeping Jacoby Ellsbury once he hits free agency.
