    Kentucky's U. Braden Kapteyn was the Red Sox 15th round selection. Kapteyn 6-4 225 R/R was selected as a first baseman, strong with very good power, but not very athletic, however is also a prospect as a pitcher with 90-92 fastball that tops out at 94, but hasn't have had much sucess as a pitcher and his delivery has some effort, but some scouts considered him a better prospect as a pitcher.

      Deshorn Lake is the youngest RedSox draft pick as he won't turn 18 yrs until October. Lake a RHP 6-1 210 originally from the Virgin Islands and pitching out of Virginia's H.S. has been in the States for the last 2 years only. Lake has a fastball that sits 92-93 but lacks command of it and his secondary pitches are very raw, also needs work on his mechanics.

        California State Chico U LHP Kevin Brahney was the Sox 11th rd selection. Brahney 6-5 220 throws a fastball in 91-92 area that tops out at 94 also a good curveball that has tight rotation, his mechanics needs some work, one opf the few college seniors that the Red Sox drafted in this draft a starting pitcher in college who projects as a reliever as a pro.

          Georgia's H.S. SS Julius Gaines was the Sox 32th rd selection. Gaines a flashy defendor has + hands but had ashoulder injury early in the Spring.

            The Red Sox 5th rd selection was Marcus "Mookie" Betts a SS from the Tennesse's H.S. ranks. Betts is a very good athlete who also play basketball has above average speed and very good good base running instincts and a very good first step quickness. Betts has good good hitting ability, good fundamentals. Betts projects as a second baseman or perhaps a centr fielder as he needs to polish his defense.

              Kent St U. third baseman Travis Shaw was the Red Sox 9th Rd selection. Shaw 6-4 225 a left handed hitter has good pull power and has had sucess hitting with wood before. In the field he has good hands and arm strength, but there are questions about his quickness and agility that could land him in First base. Shaw was also drafted by the Red Sox out of H.S.

                The Red Sox 21th rd selection is California's H.S. SS Austin Davidson. Davidson one of the top H.S. SS coming into the 2011 Spring is 6-0 175 L/R pressed as a hitter in the Spring, has very smooth hands, but lack the quickness to play SS as a pro and future maybe as a second baseman. He is considered to be a very tough sign.

                      The Red Sox seventh Rd selection is Kansas H.S. LHP Cody Kukuk. Kukuk 6-4 200 is very projectable, the sixth ranked LHP out of the H.S. ranks. Kukuk has a fastball that sits in the 88-91 area and tops out at 93, a hard slider, but is inconsistent, his curveball has good depth and a change up that needs work, his mechanics and control also needs work.

                          Mississippi's H.S. center fielder Senquez Golson was the Sox's 8th Rd selection. Golson 5-10 190 R/R is very athletic, very toolsy, + + speed, the 13th ranked outfielder out of the H.S. ranks is also a corner back in the football field. Golson has very good bat speed on a short compact swing, has above average power potential and isn't as raw as what a multy sports athlete might be in High school. Has + CF range and a average arm strength.

                          PS At this point it looks like Golson is leaning in going to college instead of signing pro.

                                South Carolna U. CF Jackie Bradley was the Sox choice for the second selection in the sandwich Rd. Bradley 5-11 180 B/R was the MVP in the 2010 college world series, a multi tool player, but the 2011 Spring has been tough for Bradley with multiple injuries, surgery in a hand has been the latest. In the field also has been tough for Bradley as he had a hard time adjusting to the new bats as he try to change his swing with them without much sucess. In the Field Bradley has + range in CF with a strong arm.
