DRAFTED: Somerset grad Langfield third-round pick by Reds - Fall River, MA - The Herald News

Although I know quite a bit about the draft process, I experienced the draft from a different perspective this year. A close family friend’s son was pitching for a top Division 1 school in his junior year and was hoping to raise his stock in this year’s draft. Whenever I spoke with his mother she’d fill me in on the process. It was nice to see him do well and see his hard work pay off with a 3rd round selection. It’s sometimes easy to forget how young the draftees are. I was reminded the last few days as I followed the process. Hopefully, he will be able to work out an agreement with the Reds and will go on to have a long healthy, successful career.

[Dan] Langfield said that according to the Major League Baseball’s Collective Bargaining Agreement, the 109th selection is ‘slotted” for $436,000. He could get more or less if he signs with the Reds. “It’s all getting figured out as we speak,” he said. “It’s all getting worked on.”
