2012 MLB Mock Draft: Red Sox Select Stryker Trahan And Tanner Rahier

The first round of the 2012 MLB Draft is scheduled for Monday, June 4, at 6 PM EST, televised on the MLB Network. The Boston Red Sox own two picks in this year's first round – the 24th and 31st.

ESPN's Keith Law recently published the third edition of his first round mock. Here's who he has going to the Red Sox:

#24

Stryker Trahan, C, Acadiana H.S. (Lafayette, La.)
Trahan didn't have a great spring, but his tools are promising. I'm still hearing the Red Sox linked to Texas A&M outfielder Tyler Naquin; I could see anything but a prep arm here.

#31

Tanner Rahier, SS, Palm Desert (Calif.) H.S.
It's unlikely he'll stay at short, but he has a polished bat for a high school kid. I still think we won't see a high school arm for Boston until the sandwich round unless there's a signability guy who falls. (This selection is compensation from the Phillies for Jonathan Papelbon.)
