What to look for from every top Red Sox prospect in 2021
It was hard to believe that it was just three years ago that the Red Sox had the worst-ranked farm system in baseball.

Over the last few years, however, a combination of the development from unheralded prospects, better drafting, and savvy trades have transformed the Red Sox system into one of the best in baseball.
In this article, we will look at what reasonable expectations would be for each of the top ten prospects in MLB.com’s Red Sox rankings. Much of the information I gathered came from the comprehensive scouting reports from the site, as well as minor league stats from baseball-reference.
