The 2016 Major League Baseball Entry Draft is coming soon, and the MLB Network & analyst Carlos Pena talked about the prospects of junior Nebraska outfielder Ryan Boldt.

Boldt, the junior from Red Wing, Minnesota, was drafted by the Boston Red Sox in the 22nd round of the 2013 MLB Draft, but decided to come to Nebraska to play for Darin Erstad instead.

Boldt led the Huskers with 48 runs scored in the 2016 season, starting all  59 total for Nebraska. He hit .288 as well as a .344 on-base percentage and .416 slugging percentage. Ryan did have 22 multi-hit games for Nebraska, getting 3 hits a total of 13 times this year.

The 2016 Major League Baseball Draft begins Thursday, June 9th and will be televised by MLB Network and MLB.com. There are 40 rounds of the draft, and they will take 3 days to complete.
