Benintendi, Fulmer, Bregman Consensus Picks

When the Red Sox pick at #7 in Monday's MLB Draft, it looks like they will either take a blue-chip OF (Andrew Benintendi, University of Arkansas). a stud right-handed starter (Carson Fulmer, Vanderbilt), or an elite SS (Alex Bregman, Louisiana State). Ironically, Boston had previously drafted two of these kids out high school in 2012 (Fulmer in the 15th round; Bregman in the 29th round). Most mock drafts seem to be focusing on Fulmer—the starting pitcher. However, Benintendi has been named Collegiate Player Of The Year, and, in Bregman, they would continue their organizational obsession with stockpiling shortstops. Stay tuned!
