The Red Sox' sixth round selection is Jordon Austin, an outfielder of of Ocala, Flordia

The Red Sox have selected outfielder Jordon Austin out of Ocala, Florida with their sixth-round pick in the 2013 MLB draft.

Information on Austin is relatively sparse, but MLB.com does have a scouting video:

That first hit looked like something special, and that's from a year ago. At 6'0" and 195 pounds, he's probably added some weight and muscle from that time, and while a 4.57 to first is not a good number, he was rounding it all the way, so it's not exactly an accurate representation of speed.

Add in a good throwing arm, and Austin seems like a solid all-around player. The kind of guy athlete who could hit surprisingly big for a sixth round pick. Not a bad way to go in these later rounds where everyone is, at best, a lottery ticket to begin with.
