When Sean Coyle was taken in the third round of the 2010 amateur draft by the Boston Red Sox out of high school, he was suddenly a player facing many, many adjustments.
First there are the normal adjustments, learning to hit with a wood bat and act day-to-day at the professional level. But beyond that, Coyle, a shortstop by trade, was asked to make the transition to second base, and it hasn't necessarily been easy. The current Salem Red Sox player admits that at first he had issues with his footwork, specifically turning the double play. However, all indications are that Coyle's a scrappy, hard-working player, so all that hard work is already paying off at the Single-A level.
Check out the video above to watch a profile of perhaps the next Red Sox second baseman.
