MLB Draft results: Red Sox pick intriguing Missouri pitcher Tanner Houck

The Boston Red Soxhave selected Oregon State right-handed pitcher, Jake Thompson, with the 131st overall in the 4th of the 2017 MLB Draft.

The Sox see that in Sheets, who hit.322 with a.429 on-base percentage and 20 home runs this season for Wake Forest. It's the motivation he would use to drive up his stock the next time he'd be eligible as a first-year player.

The two high school players, taken in rounds five and seven, were starter Alex Scherff, Colleyville, Texas; and outfielder Tyler Esplin, Lake Bluff, Illinois.

In the 2016 MLB Draft, the Pittsburgh Pirates selected Dedelow in the 34th round.

Red Sox ace Chris Sale who Houck says has a similar arm angle to his own. His OPS of.899 was the highest of his college career as well.

The 6-foot-2, 220-pound Burger now projects as a third baseman but with limited range some scouts believe his future could be at first base. He earned all-America honors for the second-straight season.

There's far less of a guarantee of early success at the end of the first round, but it would not be unprecedented.

Houck was drafted in the 12 round by the Toronto Blue Jays out of high school in IL. Although the Sox could have another top 15 draft pick next year, the future continues to look bright on the South Side. There wouldn't be as much motivation in that, though, as Houck now stands as a first-round pick.

There are questions about whether or not he can stick in the rotation, but the stuff is certainly there for Houck to be a major-league pitcher in some capacity.
