Boston Red Sox all-prospect team


As we approach the All-Star Break, there is a lot of focus on the big league teams and the star players around baseball. However, since the Red Sox are terrible this year, let’s look at the prospects.

While the 2014 season hasn’t been quite as good as the 2013 or 2012 seasons in terms of prospects (primarily due to the graduation of top prospects Xander Bogaerts and Jackie Bradley Jr.), there have certainly been some success stories throughout the system. With that in mind, let’s look at the All-Star team of Red Sox prospects: the starting lineup, the rotation, and even the bullpen of the less-popular levels of the Red Sox organization.
