Drafted in the 4th round (129th overall) by the Boston Red Sox in 2022 (signed for $272,500)
A 5-foot-10, 170-pound second baseman, Meidroth dealt with injuries that limited him to just six games with San Diego during the 2021 season, but he came back healthy and performed at a high level in 2022. Meidroth hit .329/.440/.544 with 10 home runs, 19 doubles and far more walks (40) than strikeouts (25) this spring. He showed similar plate discipline during the Northwoods League in the summer of 2021, when he slashed .345/.471/.437 with 40 walks and just 13 strikeouts. Meidroth is a small hitter who uses a line drive swing with average bat speed to make lots of contact and spray the ball into the gaps. His home run power is almost exclusively to his pull side, and his exit velocities and lack of physical projection suggest well below-average once he starts swinging a wood bat. He is a below-average runner who is best at second base. Meidroth turns 21 only a few days after the draft and should pop on draft models that value contact, approach and youth. He projects to be taken inside the top 10 rounds on the draft's second day.
