26. Boston Red Sox: Blake Swihart (C, Cleveland HS)
Swihart might have been drafted earlier - Baseball America listed him as the No. 17 prospect in the draft -- except he's expected to require significantly more than "slot money" to sign. Of course the Red Sox can certainly afford to pay higher than slot, and haven't shown much concern in the past for recommendations by the Commissioner's Office.
The product of a New Mexico high school, Swihart has committed to the University of Texas. A switch-hitter, Swihart's considered to have the athleticism for the outfield and the arm for third base, though the Red Sox would obviously love for him to develop as a professional catcher, considering their ongoing inability to develop a young player at that position. Most scouts seem to believe he can make it behind the plate, though he'll need time and patience. Everyone loves his bat; he's expected to hit for at least moderate power with a good batting average.
