Boston Red Sox Top 20 Prospects

by @ 3:59 pm. Filed under 2012 Red Sox

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.
