The Greenville Drive lineup had all the hype before the 2022 season. It featured plenty of top talent and was stacked from one through nine. Throw in some exciting pitching prospects, and it was hard to take your eyes off the team.

Fast forward one year, and we're telling you the same story, this time with different characters.

The Boston Red Sox High-A affiliate should feature plenty of talent from the team's top 30 prospect list. That's a lot of fun for anyone who plans on watching some of their games this season. Seriously, this is a team you need to check out a few times in 2023. However, it causes a problem for this list.

We're only naming five players to watch, and with an absolutely stacked roster, there will be some names left off the final draft. With that in mind, remember that this isn't a list of the only five players that matter on the team. The article is just highlighting five players on the Greenville roster that it would be extremely wise to keep an eye on.

However, there is an added twist to this roster. Greenville isn't just a team consisting of top prospects. They have quite a few under-the-radar guys. Players that might not get the recognition but have produced in the past. Could they sneak onto the list due to their potential to move up in the prospect rankings?

So who gets the honor? With one of the more loaded lineups in the minor leagues and plenty of intriguing pitching prospects, it took some time to narrow it down to five.

Players like second baseman Nick Yorke and shortstop Brainer Bonaci aren't featured because I'm not 100% sure either will start the year in High-A. There's a chance Yorke starts in Double-A (slim as it may be) and Bones in Low-A. Pitcher Jeremy Wu-Yelland also deserves some love. But after missing all of 2022, he'll probably start the year in Low-A to ramp up.

The good news is we tried our best. Isn't that all you can really ask for?
