The Boston Red Sox had to wait until the 26th pick in the 2018 MLB Draft to make their first selection. 

When it was their turn to select a player, they turned to the high school ranks, selecting third baseman Triston Casas out of American Heritage School in Florida.

The corner infielder is a decorated member of the Team USA U-18 team and is considered to be one of the top power hitting high school prospects in this year's draft.

At 6-foot-4, 240 pounds, most people project him to slide across the diamond to first base during his professional career.
