The Red Sox selected left-handed pitcher Jack McGeary from the Nationals Thursday in the Triple-A portion of the Rule 5 draft.
The 23-year-old McGeary, a Roxbury Latin gradute and the 2007 Gatorade Massachusetts Baseball Player of the Year, was picked by the Nationals in the sixth round of the 2007 MLB draft and was signed to a $1.8 million bonus. He has struggled in his six minor-league seasons, posting a 4.97 ERA in 242 innings pitched. McGeary, who underwent Tommy John surgery in the summer of 2010, attended Stanford while pitching in the Nationals minor-league system, earning a degree in classics in 2011.
