Down On The Farm: John Sickel's Top 20 Boston Red Sox Prospect for 2011

New, comments

John Sickel's published his Top 20 Boston Red Sox Prospects on Monday and I have to say that system was decimated by the deal for Adrian Gonzalez. Here is what John had to say about their system:

The Adrian Gonzalez trade ripped the top off this system, leaving no current B+ or A- prospects, although both Ranaudo and Britton can get to that level in 2011 if all goes well. Iglesias will be a regular due to his glove eventually, although if you are looking in pure fantasy terms his value won't be that great.

I agree with his comment on Iglesias. He won't hit for much power or steal bases, so his value is tied in his defense and his BA.

Head on over to Minor League Ball and check out the rest of his Top 20 Red Sox prospects.
