Red Sox Prospects

So two days after saying I wasn't going to post very often, I'm making a new post. A couple major prospect lists came out in the last couple of days.'s top 50 prospect list features three Red Sox - Jose Iglesias at 45, Casey Kelly at 28, and Ryan Westmoreland at 27. The MLB feature is impressive, going above and beyond the usual prospect lists with video and some scouting reports for the top 50 prospects.

Keith Law's top 100 prospects list came out a few days ago as well, with Casey Kelly leading the way for the Red Sox at 18, followed by Westmoreland at 32, Anthony Rizzo at 53, Lars Anderson at 56, Ryan Kalish at 86, Jose Iglesias at 91, and Junichi Tazawa at 98. Although they Sox don't have a ton of really top tier prospects right now, their depth is really impressive. Keith Law is a big fan of the Red Sox system, ranking them second overall, only behind Texas. I found the write up on Anderson the most interesting - essentially, nothing changed in Anderson's approach last year and he was healthy, but for whatever reason the season was a disaster. Law still thinks he has star potential, if Anderson can put it all together.
