When was Jarren Duran Drafted?
Jarren Duran was drafted in the 2018 Major League Baseball draft.
Jarren Duran, a junior second baseman, was the first Dirtbag selected in the 2018 Major League Baseball Draft, by the Boston Red Sox in the seventh round.
Duran started 169 games at second base during his three years at Long Beach State, and the Red Sox drafted him as an outfielder with the 220th overall choice.
Duran hit .294 in his career for the Dirtbags, and his on-base percentage climbed each season, with an OBP of .380 this past season.
He has 49 stolen bases in his career, which is tied for fourth most in program history. Duran led LBSU in hits (67), runs scored (42), home runs (2), and stolen bases (2) during his junior year (17).
Duran has improved his infield defense, despite the fact that he will most likely be converted to a centerfielder with the Red Sox.
He did not make an error in Big West play this season, and his excellent speed helped him turn 34 double plays for the Dirtbags with the solid range at the keystone.
In the last six drafts, Long Beach State has had at least one player selected in the first ten rounds. Duran is the 61st Dirtbags player to be drafted in the first ten rounds of the MLB Draft since 1989.
