2012 MLB Draft: Boston Red Sox Select RHP Pat Light With 37th Overall Pick In Compensation Round

The Boston Red Sox selected right-handed pitcher Pat Light out of Monmouth with the 37th overall pick in the compensation round of the 2012 MLB Draft. He has a lanky frame--6'6, 200 pounds--and according to SI's Dave Perkins, Light could become a mid-rotation starter at some point.

Light has decent but not spectacular stuff, featuring a low 90's fastball which can touch the mid 90's. Lanky and projectable, he adds a curve, change and a mid 80's slider. Light profiles as a mid-rotation starter, able to eat up innings with his advanced command.

The Red Sox have now selected two pitchers in this year's draft. They took lefty Brian Johnson six picks earlier.

2012 MLB Draft: Boston Red Sox Select Pitcher Brian Johnson With 31st Pick Of 1st Round

The Boston Red Sox selected left-handed pitcher Brian Johnson from the Florida with the 31st pick of the first round of the 2012 MLB Draft. Johnson was a solid two-way player with the Gators, but he will be pitching exclusively when he joins the professional ranks. John Sickels at Baseball Nation sees Johnson as a high-floor, low-ceiling "innings-eating starter" at the next level.

Listed at 6-3, 235, he has average velocity for a lefty in the upper-80s, but mixes it well with a curveball, slider, and changeup. He went 7-4, 3.67 in 15 starts for the Gators, with a 64/15 K/BB in 81 innings and 76 hits allowed. Scouts think he could be more dominant once he moves to pitching full-time. He represents a fairly low upside pick for the Red Sox, but has a very good chance to get to the majors at least as an inning-eating starter. At worst, he can help in the bullpen.

2012 MLB Draft: Red Sox Select Shortstop Deven Marrero With 24th Overall Pick

The Boston Red Sox selected shortstop Deven Marrero out of Arizona State with their first pick of the 2012 MLB Draft at 24th overall. John Sickels gave Marrero a positive review over at Baseball Nation, calling him the "best defensive shortstop in the draft." Marrero apparently needs some work on his hitting, however.

Marrero was considered one of the top amateur talents last winter, but he didn't live up to expectations with the bat, hitting just .268/.329/.396 in 149 at-bats. That said, his glove at shortstop is highly regarded, and he's one of the few shortstops available this year who can handle the position in the majors. A right-handed hitter, he's listed at 6-1 and 195 pounds. He lacks power and hasn't shown much offensively since college baseball switched to the less-potent bats last year, but even so he was expected to hit more effectively than this.

2012 MLB Mock Draft: Red Sox Targeting 3B Stephen Piscotty, RHP Shane Watson In First Round?

The Boston Red Sox have two first round picks (#24 and #31) as the 2012 MLB Draft begins on Monday. ESPN's Keith Law has revealed his final 2012 MLB Mock Draft and has some insight on who the Red Sox could be picking up tonight (via ESPN Insider $).

With the No. 24 pick, Law projects that Boston will select Stanford's third baseman, Stephen Piscotty (6-3, 215). However, Law does note that he's heard the Sox linked with Texas A&M outfielder Tyler Naquin as well.

With the 31st pick, Law sees the Red Sox potentially taking right-handed pitcher Shane Watson (6-4, 190) out of Lakewood High School in California.

Overall, Law feels like Boston might go for a "safer" pick at 24 and then try for a prep pick at 31.

The MLB draft begins at 7 p.m. on MLB Network and will also be livestreamed on MLB.com.
