Boston Red Sox Prospect Rankings
The Boston Red Sox are in a state where they are incredibly top heavy regarding minor league talent. Given the success of stand-outs like Xander, Benintendi, Bradley, and Betts the reliance on MiLB talent isn’t as grand. Nonetheless, past the top five prospects, the likelihood of MLB success is rapidly decreasing. The Boston Red Sox have been incredibly skilled at analyzing and signing foreign talent and the projection of Bryan Mata, and Yoan Aybar suggests that much of the same is still in the works. As a multitude of talent were recently offloaded for high-caliber talent in the primary club, it is no surprise that going into the preseason there appears to be less talent than expected from the ever thriving Boston Red Sox minor league system.
