The Boston Red Sox have selected left-handed pitcher Trey Ball with the No. 7 pick of the 2013 MLB Amateur Draft.

Ball is considered equally interesting as an outfield prospect or a left-handed pitcher, but will likely fill the role of pitcher -- the six-foot-six lefty already flashies a plus fastball. Iif he can fill out his large frame, he could be a top-of-the-rotation starter.

Ball is also a toolsy outfielder. Blessed with the aforementioned athleticism and frame, he could stick in center field. This pick is a great one, because he has so much upside, and plenty of time with which to try and reach said upside.

The industry could be looking back in a few years on this one and wondering how it outsmarted itself.
