45 1372 Boston Red Sox Matt Gedman 2B Mass.
Matt Gedman, the son of former Red Sox catcher Rich Gedman, had a solid spring, hitting .397/.436/.571 for UMass. Also a backup goalie on the school's hockey team, Gedman is an athletic, scrappy third baseman who plays above his tools. He should get taken late as a senior sign, possibly by Boston, where he would get a chance to play for his father, who's also the hitting coach for the short-season Lowell Spinners.
