Nick Madrigal-#47 Ranked Prospect

Madrigal was drafted with the fourth overall pick in the MLB Draft last Summer. After helping the Oregon State Beavers win a College World Series championship, Madrigal performed well in his first professional season in the Sox farm system.

Through 43 total games last season, Madrigal hit .303 with seven doubles, eight stolen bases and struck out just five times in 173 total plate appearances. Madrigal could be the Sox future second baseman or even shortstop. But for now, his development in the minors is what’s most important.

The Sox made a good selection in drafting Madrigal. With his ability to put the ball in play often, he could be a good addition to a Sox team that could be contending when he makes his major league debut. Madrigal might not hit for much power but he will bring other attributes to the Sox that will help them remain competitive.
