2010 MLB Draft, Pick 20: Red Sox Draft Kolbrin Vitek (2B, Ball State)

With the 20th overall pick in the 2010 First Year Player Draft, the Red Sox selected second baseman Kolbrin Vitek out of Ball State University.

Vitek is considered one of the best pure-hitters in the draft, with excellent bat speed. He has some power in his stroke, which may improve down the line.

MLB Network's Peter Gammons expects the Red Sox to move Vitek to the outfield. Vitek isn't the strongest defensive infielder, plus the Red Sox have 2008 AL MVP Dustin Pedroia manning second base in Boston through 2014.
