Xander Bogaerts Among Nine Red Sox Players On Top 100 Prospects List


The Boston Red Sox not only are coming off a World Series title. They also feature one of Major League Baseball’s deepest farm systems.

MLB.com released its annual top 100 prospects list last week, and the Red Sox are well-represented. Nine Red Sox players are featured on the list, including Xander Bogaerts, who ranks second behind Minnesota Twins outfielder Byron Buxton.

According to MLB.com’s “prospects points” system, the Red Sox trail only the Houston Astros when it comes to premier prospects. Boston’s nine featured prospects are the most of any team in the league.

The nine featured Red Sox prospects and their respective rankings are below.

Xander Bogaerts, SS (2)
Henry Owens, LHP (30)
Jackie Bradley Jr., OF (33)
Allen Webster, RHP (46)
Garin Cecchini, 3B (57)
Blake Swihart, C (61)
Mookie Betts, 2B (62)
Matt Barnes, RHP (86)
Trey Ball, LHP (96)
