With the No. 87 pick in the draft, the Red Sox picked RHP Jamie Callahan, a high school pitcher from South Carolina. Here are all of the Sox's Day 2 picks:

Round 2, No. 87: RHP Jamie Callahan, Dillon HS, South Carolina
MLB.com on Callahan: Callahan is a projectable righty who has the chance to have three plus pitches. He has a fastball that sits in the low 90s, touching 94-95 mph, but doesn't have a lot of movement. Here's a video scouting report on MLB.com

Round 3, No. 118: RHP Austin Maddox, Florida
MLB.com on Maddox: A former two-way standout, Maddox's hitting days will be over soon as it's clear his future is on the mound as a reliever. Florida's closer has an above-average fastball that he can dial up to plus, hitting 93 mph consistently. Here's a video scouting report on MLB.com.

Round 4, No. 151: RHP Ty Buttrey, Providence Senior High School, North Carolina
Keith Law had Buttrey ranked No. 37 overall. His scouting report: Buttrey was garnering heavy attention early in the year when he hit 96 mph with a knockout curveball and a parade of crosscheckers attending his starts. His stuff has backed up some since then but he has a chance to go off the board in the first round and likely in the sandwich round. Click here to read the rest of it (Insider access required).

MLB.com on Buttery: When a pitcher kicks off a Draft season with a noticeable jump in velocity, it's going to attract attention. Buttrey did just that, causing an influx of scouts to the Charlotte area. The big right-hander was up to the mid-90s at the start of the season. Here's a video scouting report on MLB.com.

Round 5, No. 181: RHP Mike Augliera, Binghamton U., New York

Round 6, No. 211: RHP Justin Haley, Fresno State, California

Round 7, No. 241: RHP Kyle Kraus, University of Portland, Oregon

Round 14, No. 451: LHP Dylan Chavez, Ole Miss, Mississippi

Round 15, No. 481: RHP Carson Fulmer, All Saints Academy, Florida
MLB.com on Fulmer: Strong and durable, he has a fastball that can touch 96 mph. He combines that with a tight and quick slider that has good bite, especially when he keeps it down in the zone. It's an out pitch for him at times. Here's a video scouting report on MLB.com.
