Arizona Fall League Run Down

SoxProspects recently posted an overview of the Red Sox players in the Arizona Fall League, which just finished up. Both Luis Exposito, the catching prospect who could conceivably take over for Victor Martinez in 2011, and Ryan Kalish, one of the many centerfield prospects the Red Sox have, hit very well. Jose Iglesias, the 19 year old Cuban shortstop who is supposed to be an incredible fielder was all right with the bat and Casey Kelly was pretty terrible batting. Hopefully this will lead to him being a full time pitcher now. None of the four pitching prospects in the AFL are particularly interesting, as most are much older with lower ceilings.

Thanks to Andrew for sending me a link to this article and the updated Rule 5 information.
