Recommended Posts

Victor Torres. Another catcher but with upside. Gonna be 19 in the couple of months. From Puerto Rico.

Also listed as one of the top 5 players from PR in the draft. Here is the write up:

Quote

The teenage Torres might be one of the best defensive catchers overall in the Draft. Torres is known for his outstanding throwing ability, and he’s very athletic behind the plate. He’s made strides offensively and there is some upside to his game, but for now, Torres is known as defense-first player. But that could change as he grows and develops.

Torres has committed to Northwest Florida State College.

Brubaker.  Wasn't that the name of the catcher in that awful baseball movie.  

Yes I'm going to punch myself in the face for knowing that.

Rube Baker, and that movie is a great time.

He’s talking about the catcher in Summer Catch

Last time the Sox drafted this many HS players?

Been quite a while, especially within 15 rounds. I'm giddy.

Have to like the Sox going after such a talented young defensive catcher at this point. Catching depth is very valuable and important in the organization.

Man I missed the first two picks.

Anything on our 12th rounder?

Also really glad we are talking about summer catch. I love movies where they need to show you how funny they are by constantly having the characters laughing at each others jokes a lot.

Damnit, Dbacks got Avery Short. He was someone I targeted with our picks today. Apparently he is the most advanced HS pitcher in the draft. Indiana kid.

Hopefully we nab Prosecky. Would be a thrill for him as a Sox fan.
