Boston Red Sox Prospect Watch: We’re going streaking (hot and cold)
The Red Sox Prospect Watch is highlighted with a whole lot of streaks
One of the best parts about working with the minor leagues so much is that when the Boston Red Sox are breaking our hearts, I have something to focus on that can make me happy and optimistic. This is one of those times.
The Red Sox are making every game a struggle at this point. There is some good news though. It looks like they’re open to switching things up a lot. We’ve already seen them shake up the roster, bringing Franchy Cordero back into the mix and giving Jaylin Davis a shot.
Neither are exactly “prospects” but the point is, Boston clearly is willing to try different things out to right the ship. And that might lead to some of the highly-regarded prospects getting the call-up to the Majors at some point.
For now, it’s hard to complain about most of the younger guys on the current MLB roster. Garrett Whitlock legitimately might be one of the best arms in all of baseball. Tanner Houck is nasty. Kutter Crawford has struggled, but there are plenty of outings where he looks untouchable. So clearly the stuff is there, he just needs to figure a few things out to make it all work.
It’s not all good though and that’s why the Red Sox are where they’re at right now. Struggling and looking for answers. Could those answers be in the minor leagues? Maybe you should read the Boston Red Sox Prospect Watch to find out.
Oof, didn’t feel particularly great about that shameless plug. So let’s just move past it.
