Mock Draft Has Red Sox Taking Vandy RHP #7

Carson Fulmer
The respected Baseball America Mock Draft projects that—at pick #7—the Red Sox will take right-handed pitcher Carson Fulmer out of Vanderbilt University. The Red Sox tried gabbing the kid in the 15th round of the 2012 draft, but lost out to Vandy. As a freshman, Fulmer closed for the Commodores, but, after switching to starter the next year, he posted a 1.98 ERA. He can reach the high 90s on his fastball, and also features a nasty curve and a devastating change-up. The Twinkies have also shown interest in Fulmer—and they pick one spot ahead of Boston in the draft. But, if things fall right, look for the 5'11", 195-pound Fulmer to be somewhere in the Sox system at this time next year.
