This weekend is the MLB draft. The three possibilities for the Red Sox in the 2022 MLB draft will be interesting In three Years Chaim Bloom has selected high school infielders. Will this year be any different? My gut feeling is yes. Personally, I would like to see the organization draft starting pitching. Another area of need is a closer. Outfielders with power are always an interesting choice. In this post, we will review three players that may be available with the twenty_fourth Pick.
Dylan Beavers/OF/ California
A towering 6’4″ 295 power hitter. Can play left field, center field, and right field. Would be ideal in Fenway Park. The only issue is will he be available at 24? The team lacks outfield prospects in the system, A native of San Luis Obispo, California.
In two years with the Golden Bears, he has 36 home runs and 107 runs batted in. Plus a 294 batting average. His bonus pool would be over $6,000,000.
Justin Campbell/RHP/ Oklahoma State
A 6’4′ righthander just started to make a name for himself in 2022. Campbell relies on three pitches, a changeup, fastball, and slider. Although he is not known for his velocity, his command deserves respect. He pitched a no_hitter vs Kansas in 2021.
Campbell finished the 2021 campaign going 7-2 with a 2.57 ERA, The enticing thing about Campbell is he is two_way. He also serves as the team’s DH. This would be awful intriguing for Chaim Bloom to consider at 24.
Sterlin Thompson/OF/ Florida
Thompson is your typical Florida product. A versatile athlete with a wealth of upsides. First, he can play both right field and left. also, has spent some time at third base. With the Red Sox thin at the outfield position Thompson would be perfect. a left _handed hitter with a wide _open stance who can hit.
In two seasons with the Gators, Thompson batted 334 with 16 home runs and 78 runs batted in. He also has some speed. Although he is still raw,, they do not have many corner outfielders on the way up.
In, three years, General manager Chaim Bloom has an excellent track record. Whether he drafts another high school prospect remains to be seen. The organization could use an upgrade in the outfield and catching department. Preferably, candidates with, power.
