When the Boston Red Sox selected Trey Ball with the No. 7 overall pick in the MLB Draft, they did so with the idea that he could be a reliable starting pitcher in their rotation down the road.

Ball is by no means a sure thing, but on The Baseball Show, Alex Speier was adamant about Ball having the most upside of any player the Red Sox drafted this year.

"The reason why you take a guy that high is because you see someone with clear front of the rotation potential," Speier said. "You see the makings of a potential frontline starter."
