2012 MLB Draft: ASU Standout Deven Marrero Taken At 24 By Boston Red Sox

After falling further than was expected, Arizona State standout shortstop Deven Marrero finally was selected in the first round of Monday night's MLB Draft. He was taken by the Boston Red Sox with the 24th pick overall.

Marrero was projected in many mock drafts to go in the early teens, but in the end he gets to go to the team that has another former ASU standout playing second base -- former MVP Dustin Pedroia.

Boston was looking for a college player that could have an impact offensively in the league.

Marrero was a decorated player for the Sun Devils. His awards include:

- 2012 First Team Pac-12 All-Conference
- 2012 First Team Academic All-District VIII
- 2012 Golden Spikes Award Preseason Watch List
- 2011 Pac-10 Defensive Player of the Year

- 2010 Collegiate Baseball First Team Freshman All-American
- 2010 NCBWA Second Team Freshman All-American
- 2010 Honorable Mention Pac-12 All-Conference
- 2010 All-Tempe Regional Team

In his three years at ASU, he batted .325.
