It's official: The Boston Red Sox will have the No. 4 overall pick in the 2021 MLB Draft.
MLB confirmed Monday next year's draft order will be determined by 2020 win-loss records. That means the top five picks will be made by the Pittsburgh Pirates, Texas Rangers, Detroit Tigers, Red Sox, and Baltimore Orioles. For some names that may be on Boston's draft board at No. 4, go here.
Boston fans may be bummed about missing out on a top-three selection, but there's still reason to be optimistic about the fourth overall pick. There have been some outstanding players -- even Hall of Famers -- selected at that spot over the years.
