John Sickels put out his top 20 Red Sox prospects list and while there’s no blue chips yet, there’s some depth. Coming in at number one is Xander Bogaerts who’s a shortstop. He still has a way to go and Sickels gave him a B+ but also said that he could have given them an A-.
Number two is the top pitcher, Matt Barnes. He slipped to the Red Sox in the draft last year but Sickels talks about how he has a major league build and could be a solid starter. Will Middlebrooks (3b) is third and he’s close but will probably spend some time in Pawtucket.
Rounding out the top five is Ryan Lavarnway (C-DH) and Garin Cecchini (3b). He indicated Cecchini has some potential.
