24. Boston Red Sox: Keston Hiura, OF/2B, UC-Irvine

There's no question that Hiura—whose reported height ranges from 5'11" to 6'1"—has an advanced bat, with a short stroke and plus bat speed, though his power draws grades ranging from average to plus. The rub is that he lacks a defensive home due to a below-average arm and footwork. What's more, he's dealing with an elbow injury that could require Tommy John surgery. While the Dodgers were recently linked to Hiura because Dr. Neal ElAtrache, the team orthopedist, oversaw Hiura’s platelet-rich plasma treatment, Boston’s been heavily linked to him as well, and an AL team makes more sense given the defensive questions.
