Boston Red Sox Farm System

Entering the 2014 season the Red Sox had the #1 Farm System in all of baseball. After graduating Xander Bogaerts and Mookie Betts their drop in talent is not substantial at all. In fact, they are a fast-moving system but have several players that should progress to the bigs this year. It all starts with their great player development staff. The 2014 draft was a very impressive collection of talent with a solid combination of projectability and talent. First round pick Michael Chavis is a hard-nosed ball player who does a lot of things right including a very advanced short-stoke and patience at the plate. Fellow first round Michael Kopech is a lean righty with a high-mph fastball that he will need to learn how to harness but shows tremendous projectability. Sam Travis was a second round pick out of Indiana. He played in the shadows of Kyle Schwarber but projects to have solid power and a keen plate approach.

Lefty Henry Owens is a their #1 pitching prospect. He is a crafty lefty who throws his fastball in the low 90s normally sitting in the 88-92 range and has a plus changeup. Consistency on his other breaking pitches is something that he needs to continues to work on. Their international signee Rusney Castillo might be the best athlete in their entire system including the major league level. Castillo has a ton of talent, with an aggressive approach and plays solid defense in center.

One guy who does not get much of the publicity as the other prospects in fellow lefty Eduardo Rodriguez. Rodriguez came to the Red Sox from the O’s for Andrew Miller. He profiles as a #2 starter and looks every part of the second-coming of Johan Santana. With the signing of Yoan Moncado, the Red Sox system might jump into thetop five quickly. Between Moncado and Castillo, the Red Sox have two studs that they spent a lot of money on.
