Laumann said general manager Kenny Williams prefers players who can make it to the big-league club quickly, though the Sox did select three high school players among their first five picks last year.
“Kenny’s philosophy is get an impact guy, get a guy that we think when he gets to the big-league level he can make an impact, be a star kind of player,” Laumann said. “That being said, we don’t seem to be an organization that fits into a rebuilding mode to where we want to sit there and say we want to wait four, five, six years for a guy.
“We’re always trying to inject guys maybe in a two or three-year time frame to the core we’ve got at the big-league level. When that’s the case, the college kid’s certainly someone that’s going to be a little more attractive to us.”
