Tuesday is Day 2 of the 2015 MLB draft and after only making one selection Monday, it will be a busy day for the Red Sox as they will make eight selections. Here's what happened last night and what is to come for the rest of the draft: Round 1: Andrew Benintendi, OF, Arkansas at No. 7 overall (Read our story on how he became the player he is today, including being a two-sport star in high school). Round 2: No selection as the team gave up both its second-round pick and Round 1 competitive balance pick (from Jon Lester trade) since they signed free agents Pablo Sandoval and Hanley Ramirez as both players declined qualifying offers from their former teams. Rounds 3-10: The Red Sox will select sixth in these rounds, which will begin at 1 p.m. on Tuesday. Rounds 11-40: The Red Sox will select sixth in these rounds, which will begin at 12 p.m. on Wednesday. For more draft and Red Sox news, visit weei.com/redsox.
