Boston Red Sox 2014 Draft Picks: Scouting Profiles and Analysis
Charles Krupa/Associated Press

Welcome to the MLB draft, baseball fans! As the coverage and importance of the annual first-year player draft has evolved over the years, outlets like MLB Network and Bleacher Report have dedicated time to bring knowledge and background on each player selected to fans.

For the Boston Red Sox, team building isn't simply an exercise in financial muscle and clout. Despite an annual payroll near the top of the sport, general manager Ben Cherington—as well as former head man Theo Epstein—routinely emphasizes the need for a deep, fertile and productive farm system.

With the No. 26 overall pick in the first round on Thursday night, Cherington and Boston's front office had an opportunity to add to the franchise that has captured three World Series championships over the last decade. Due to a compensation pick stemming from the departure of former homegrown talent Jacoby Ellsbury, the Red Sox owned two of the first 33 selections in the 2014 draft.

Over the next few days, bookmark this page and follow along as the Red Sox attempt to add to a core of young, ascending players including Xander Bogaerts, Jackie Bradley, Brock Holt, Garin Cecchini, Mookie Betts and Henry Owens.
