    A-ball catcher Devon Antonia went to the Mets in the Minor League portion.

    Third pick is interesting in that they have a SS at AAA.

    Might mean they want Barrero in the OF full time now.

    Pick 4: https://www.baseball-reference.com/r...d=bell--001bro

    Might be a pen arm. Certainly some kinda depth move. I like this pick. He's a tad old for the last level he was at. Looks like he missed three years, not sure why. Doesn't walk anyone. I'd like to know more about his story.

    found this on soxprospects.com.

    Career Notes: Son of former MLB All-Star Jay Bell. Older brother Brantley is a third baseman who has played in the Reds and Padres organizations, reaching as high as Triple-A, as well as independent ball. Began JuCo career as a two-way player, but blew out his arm early in his sophomore season and underwent Tommy John surgery. Came back with increased velocity and chose to focus exclusively on pitching. Committed to Auburn. Participated in the Fall Instructional League in 2019 and 2020. Underwent UCL revision surgery, a procedure essentially revising a prior Tommy John surgery after reinjuring the ligament that is not exactly the same as Tommy John, in the last week of May 2021 and missed the entire 2021 and 2022 seasons. Participated in the 2021 Fall Performance Program while rehabbing.

    The Reds picked in the Fourth round Brock Bell a RHP from the Boston Red Sox!
