Red Sox Prospect Watch: Players already separating themselves
By Hunter Noll
It’s week two of the 2019 Boston Red Sox prospect watch and certain players are already separating themselves from the pack.
Another week has gone by – and with it, players are already starting to separate themselves from the pack. The Boston Red Sox minor leagues are riddled with players trying to make a name for themselves.
There are the older players that are trying to get back to the Majors in Triple-A. As well as the veteran minor leaguers who still haven’t found their way to the highest level yet.
Then there’s the elite prospects. The ones that everyone expects big things from and the players already have a pretty bright spotlight on them.
Finally, there are the under appreciated prospects. The ones that consistently put up solid numbers in the minors, but don’t get the recognition they deserve – not from the fans or it seems the organization.
Here I get to highlight all those players. And through just two weeks in the season, we’ve already got some players showing out. Some players from all the categories mentioned above – and from every level in the minors – have started off the year strong.
Which players are looking to make a name for themselves early in the year? Who’s proving the supporters right and the doubters wrong so far?
Once again, there’s really nothing to talk about at the Major League level. Marcus Walden has been sent back to the minors, giving the Red Sox an extra spot on the roster. This could be taken by someone like Bobby Poyner – who would at least give us a prospect of sorts to talk about in the future.
