Final ESPN Mock Draft Has Happ Going To Sox

Ian Happ's Keith Law revealed his final MLB Mock Draft projections today and it shows the Red Sox taking 20-year OF/2B Ian Happ with the #7 overall pick. Happ is a switch-hitting junior at the University of Cincinnati—and could become the first Bearcat ever to be drafted in the first round. Happ had a stellar year in the Cape Cod Baseball League in 2013—batting .293 with 13 stolen bases for the Harwich Mariners. In three years at Cincinnati, he batted .338 with 25 homers and 107 RBIs. One of his mentors is former Sox first-baseman Sean Casey. Stay tuned tonight (MLB Network, 7PM ET) to see who the Sox select!
