By Mike El-Far
There are a handful of Red Sox prospects who have made an impact. Both positive and negative, there are trends that should be noticed.
With over six weeks of the 2017 season completed for the Boston Red Sox organization, players have started to get their footing under them. Some have had success this year, while others have not. But one thing is for sure, the trends that have started this year are very telling of how their year is going to go.
