MLB Draft 2013 results: LHP Trey Ball selected by Red Sox with the No. 7 pick

Mike Stobe

The Red Sox selected Trey Ball with the No. 7 overall pick in the 2013 MLB Draft. A dynamic prospect, two-way player Trey Ball is an enticing selection at this spot.

The Boston Red Sox have selected left-handed pitcher Trey Ball with the No. 7 pick of the 2013 MLB Amateur Draft.

Ball is considered equally interesting as an outfield prospect or a left-handed pitcher, but will likely fill the role of pitcher -- the 6'6, 190-pound high schooler out of New Castle, Ind., already flashes a plus fastball. If he can fill out his large frame, he could be a top-of-the-rotation starter.

Ball is also a toolsy outfielder. Blessed with athleticism and frame, he could stick in center field. However, Jim Callis of Baseball America noted he "would merit a second- or third-round selection as a position player."
