Final draft order is seemingly set. It's still unclear to me if Felipe Lopez garners a pick for Boston. He signed a minor league deal which many say nulls compensation. Others note that if Lopez makes the Rays opening day roster, Boston can petition MLB to receive said compensation pick.

Not that the draft threads of past are a hotbed of activity, but this thread will likely be exceptionally quiet this year. It is a really interesting draft class that is exceptionally strong, but I'd assume most people here are indifferent to other team's drafting. With no pick until the 47th selection, speculation is quite useless. We can only hope that the Sox reallocate funds that would have been spent on the 1st round pick on talent that falls to the supplemental round or further. I won't be surprised if the organization just cuts the draft budget even further though.
