The All-Star Break is something that both players and fans love to see. The players get a much needed couple of days to recharge the batteries. And the fans get two nights of truly exciting baseball. This year, the Home Run Derby was “must-watch” TV with the emergence of young stars in baseball. And the All-Star Game featured five players in both starting lineups under the age of 25.

With the entire league going through a youth revolution, where does that leave the Boston Red Sox? At the major league level, they have a young core that could rival most teams. While their minor league system was considered to be elite just 2 years ago, trades have taken some of the talent away.

That being said, there are still some players in the system that are extremely talented. Just a couple days ago, a member of the Pawtucket Red Sox won the Triple-A Home Run Derby. Also, three members of the system have just been named to the Baseball America Midseason Top 100 List.

So clearly, this system is very talented. But there are many questions that can be asked. Are they any players that could be called up and make an immediate impact? Which players seem to be unfairly rated, both over and under? If the Red Sox wanted to unload more prospects at the deadline, who might be on the move?
