Though Michael Almanzar has been highly successful through 16 professional games, it's difficult to project a 17-year-old. The Red Sox have an offseason plan for the shortstop, who is playing for the Gulf Coast League Red Sox. He is likely to head to the instructional league to "continue to refine and define his physical frame and work on his foot speed and quickness," Hazen said.

"Physically, he's got a lot of work to do to put on some weight," Hazen said. "He's making positive strides physically and fundamentally. We're not looking at numbers. We're not looking at performance. "We're looking at him to show us some consistency."

Almanzar is hitting .359 (23 for 64) with five doubles and nine RBIs.
