Boston Red Sox, 2021 2nd Round pick, 40th overall: Jud Fabian OF-Florida

1 min read
Jud Fabian OF Florida

Fabian (seen pictured in the 2019 SEC Tournament) was one of the top home run hitters in college baseball this past season.

Despite cooling off somewhat down the stretch of the 2021 campaign, Fabian earned All-SEC defensive honors and still found time to finish in the nation’s Top 10 in home runs (20). For his career, he banged out 32 homers and finished with a career .512 slugging percentage. The biggest knock on Fabian has been in the strikeout department, but he is currently tinkering with his approach at the plate and did draw 40 walks as a junior. The Ocala, Florida native has a solid chance to be a Top 30 selection in this summer’s draft proceedings.

Fabian drew 40 walks in 2021 while also banging out 20 home runs.
