June 15, 2019

 

BOSTON, MA – The Boston Red Sox Saturday signed eight players selected in the 2019 MLB First-Year Player Draft, including the club’s top selection, shortstop Cameron Cannon (2nd round).

The Red Sox also reached agreements with seven additional draft selections: catcher Jacob Herbert (18th round), right-handed pitcher Dylan Spacke (21st round), first baseman Dominic D’Alessandro (22nd round), center fielder Leon Paulino (23rd round), outfielder Dean Miller (24th round), left-handed pitcher Brandon Walter (26th round), and right-handed pitcher Devon Roedahl (27th round).

Vice President of Amateur Scouting Mike Rikard made the announcement.

Picked in the second round as the 43rd overall selection in the June Draft, Cannon will report to Fort Myers, FL, before beginning his professional career with short-season Single-A Lowell. Each of the other signees will report to the Rookie-level Gulf Coast League Red Sox.

Cannon, 21, batted .347 (184-for-531) with 16 home runs, 113 RBI, and a 1.004 OPS in three years at the University of Arizona. As a junior in 2019, the right-handed hitter posted a .478 on-base percentage and led the Wildcats with a .397 batting average that ranked second in the Pac-12, while his 29 doubles led all of Division I and fell one shy of the Wildcats’ single-season record. An All-Pac-12 selection as a junior, he recorded more walks than strikeouts in each of the last two years with Arizona. In the summer of 2018, Cannon played for Falmouth in the Cape Cod Baseball League and was selected to the All-Star Game.
