2021 MLB Draft: Elmer Rodriguez, 105th Overall, Boston Red Sox

July 12, 2021

Rodriguez pitched for the World Team at 2020 International Week in Fenway, and struck out three of the batters he faced in a two-inning relief outing.

“Projection, strike-thrower, velocity ceiling,” said Jeremy Booth, CEO and president of the Future Stars Series. “There’s a guy that’s a little bit different, but not much, that we took with Milwaukee, who’s named Jorge Lopez. He was from Puerto Rico, and we took him in the second round. (Rodriguez) has a chance to have that starter profile in the next four or five years, but that’ll be up to him. He’s got enough stuff and enough feel to make that transition.”
