Baseball America’s 2013 Top 10 Red Sox Prospects

Baseball America is spending the offseason ranking the top 10 prospects of each MLB organization and on Tuesday, they ranked the top 10 prospects of the Boston Red Sox for the 2013 season.

Boston Red SoxLast year, Will Middlebrooks was named the top prospect and with him now firmly entrenched at third base, Xander Bogaerts has been named the top prospect in the Red Sox organization.

Here's the full list:

  1. 1. SS Xander Bogaerts
  2. 2. OF Jackie Bradley
  3. 3. RHP Matt Barnes
  4. 4. RHP Allen Webster
  5. 5. LHP Henry Owens
  6. 6. C Blake Swihart
  7. 7. 3B Garin Cecchini
  8. 8. OF Bryce Brentz
  9. 9. SS Jose Iglesias
  10. 10. SS Deven Marrero

Of that list, we can expect Iglesias to contribute to the big club as it's expected he'll compete for the starting shortstop job especially with Mike Aviles gone.

There's also the possibility of Bradley coming up at some point. That will probably take one of two things. It'll have to be either an injury to Jacoby Ellsbury or trade of him since he'll be a free agent at the end of the 2013 season.
