View Full Version : Baseball America Midseason Top 50

Four Red Sox make the list:

4. Xander Bogaerts, SS
Of an impressive group of shortstop prospects, Bogaerts has the best combo of hit and power tools.

21. Jackie Bradley, OF
Ceiling is lower than some lower on this list, but he’s a safe bet to be an long-time everyday center fielder.

37. Anthony Ranuado, RHP
If not for his track record of injuries/ineffectiveness, he’d rate even higher.

41. Garin Cecchini, 3B
One of the breakout stars of 2013 ranks second in minors in on-base percentage.


FWIW, Matt Barnes and Henry Owens were near misses, which would indicate that it's a lock we have 6 in the top 100 with Swihart, Webster and Ball having an excellent chance of making it as well. Also, if Cecchini continues to perform well at AA, good chance he jumps even higher up this list.

Just realized that Webster did not qualify for this list because those who were in the majors on July 1st were not eligible. So he's probably going to make the top 50 when it's all said and done.

Good to see we have 4 players in the top 50. Makes 1 feel good about the future of this team.

if webster was down in the minors he probably wouldve made it since its pretty much consensus that webster is above ranaudo right now but i wouldnt be surprised to see ball, swihart and maybe even workman be top 100 as well as the already mentioned and near misses from the list
