Which Red Sox Prospects Should Be Untouchable?

Featured image courtesy of (Oct. 17, 2018 - Source: Elsa/Getty Images North America) Every year, the middle of summer is an exciting time for armchair GMs like myself. Between the MLB Draft in June and the non-waiver one-and-only trade deadline in July, there’s a lot of action taking place outside

Kole Cottam: Red Sox Prospects

Kole Cottam

Roldani Baldwin entered 2018 as the unquestioned top catching prospect in the Boston Red Sox system, but Kole Cottam is giving him a run for his money. Cottam is currently unranked on the MLB’s prospect listings, but has Cottam ranked above Baldwin as the Red Sox top catching prospect.

Brett Netzer: Red Sox Prospects

Brett Netzer

The Boston Red Sox don't have much farm depth at the middle infield. That said, they do have 22-year old second baseman Brett Netzer. Netzer originally joined the Red Sox back in 2017 as the organizations' third-round pick. Netzer spent the entirety of 2018 with the High-A Salem Red Sox and

Zach Schellenger: Red Sox Prospects

Zach Schellenger

If Zach Schellenger can stay healthy, he could climb his way up the Red Sox prospect rankings. However, that's a huge "if". The 2017 draft pick has pitched just 19.1 innings in his minor league career, appearing in just 15 games. However, he has a great pitch tool when healthy

Kyle Hart: Red Sox Prospects

Kyle Hart

He’s not on anyone’s top prospects list, but 26-year old Kyle Hart has performed well ever since joining the Red Sox organization. The lefty hurler is one of three reigning All-Stars on the Portland Sea Dogs roster, but hasn’t received much fanfare. Can Hart finally put himself on the national

Chase Shugart: Red Sox Prospects

Chase Shugart

Despite only pitching eight professional innings, there's a lot to like about 2018's 12th-round pick Chase Shugart. Shugart spent time in college as both a reliever and a starter, but the Red Sox are currently trying him in the starting rotation. Can Shugart continue to develop into a starter, or will

Jarren Duran: Red Sox Prospects

Jarren Duran

The Red Sox 2018 draft class was headlined by injuries. Their two top picks, Triston Casas and Nick Decker, played a combined four games in 2018. However, some of the later picks, like Jarren Duran, inspired hope for the rest of the draft class. Duran entered the system as a second baseman but

Brandon Howlett: Red Sox Prospects

Brandon Howlett

The MLB Draft has a staggering 40 rounds, but most of the "good" prospects are off the board pretty early in the draft. That said, every now and again you find a late-round gem, and the Red Sox appear to have found their diamond in the rough in 19-year old Brandon

Roldani Baldwin: Red Sox Prospects

Roldani Baldwin

The Boston Red Sox don't have much in terms of minor league catchers, but they do have Roldani Baldwin. Originally signed back in 2013, the Red Sox originally had Baldwin split time behind the plate and at third base. However, the Sox decided to make him a full-time catcher in 2018,
