A Look at Where Boston Red Sox's Top Draft Picks from 2010 Are Now
The Boston Red Sox have a surplus of prospects currently waiting for their chances at the major league level, including all of the team's picks from the 2010 amateur draft.
From pitchers to infielders, the clubs' top 2010 draft picks came in the first through fourth rounds, including six players overall.
Here is how Boston's draft picks from three years ago are faring in the minor leagues so far this season.
Kolbrin Vitek (20th from Braves): At age 24, Vitek is still in Double-A Portland as a huge utility guy with multiple games at second base, third base and in the outfield. He is hitting .207 with only seven RBI through 31 games, but he does have four stolen bases in four chances.
Bryce Brentz (36th): Brentz is in Pawtucket and has played well, even though he has dealt with some injuries. He already has 10 homers and 37 RBI with a .284 average for the season. He also has a .920 fielding percentage in the corner outfield spots.
Anthony Ranaudo (39th): Still in Portland with the Sea Dogs, Ranaudo is trying to get his mechanics ready for the majors. In 2013, he has compiled a 6-1 record with 58 strikeouts and a 1.48 ERA through 10 starts. His WHIP is only 0.841, as he looks to be one of the better prospects in the farm system.
Brandon Workman (57th): Another young arm in the minors who has been able to get the job done in 2013. He is 5-1 with the Portland Sea Dogs and has 69 strikeouts in 57.2 innings pitched. He has nine starts in 10 appearances with an ERA of 3.75.
Sean Coyle (110): Coyle is at High-A Salem and will likely be stuck there for the foreseeable future at second base. He is hitting .248 with 10 home runs and 20 RBI through 144 at-bats and has already stolen 11 bases. Make sure to keep him on your radar when he moves up in the system.
Garin Cecchini (143): A top-quality third baseman who moved from shortstop for the Red Sox, Cecchini has five homers and 28 RBI through 45 games with High-A Salem. He also has 12 stolen bases in 16 chances with a .356 average and a .464 OBP.
