Matt Kory (formerly of The Athletic, FanGraphs, Vice, etc) is joined once again by Chris Hatfield, the Executive Editor of Sox Prospects. Chris and Matt talk about the draft that just happened, how Marcelo Mayer fell to Boston at four, the promise of Jud Fabian, and some other names to look out for in Boston's draft haul. They hit on some names in the Sox system who are popping, and examine the two prospects just called up to Boston, in Jarren Duran and Tanner Houck. There's other stuff too!
