    Weight: 209 lbs

    BA Scouting Report:
    MLB Scouting Report:
    Ranked 52nd overall in the draft class by MLB, 59th by BA. He was the second highest ranked player the Sox drafted by MLB's list, 3rd by BA's. Scherff is the most exciting pitcher they drafted even if he's far from the most polished and further away from the majors than either Houck or Thompson.

    He also has a strong social media presence and is a fun follow on twitter.

    This is the tweet the above photo is from:

    He likely had a deal worked out with the Red Sox in advance of the draft, since he immediately started tweeting about joining the organization after being drafted, and even changed his twitter profile to read "pitcher in the Boston Red Sox organization" before the round was over, despite being selected well below his ranking and looking like an over slot signing.

    Oh, and he may be the most diesel person in the entire organization now that Moncada is gone.
