Prospect Update

John Sickels over at Minor Leage Ball, took a look back at how his Sox Top 20 were performing this season. So I thought I would post my current top 10. (20 would be too much work)

  1. Brian Anderson -- OF | Charlotte | AAA
    Not great, not terrible. Will be a solid OF for years to come.
  2. Brandon McCarthy -- RHP | Charlotte | AAA
    No reason to let his ML call up effect his status. He's got some work to do, but could be very good
  3. Chris Young -- OF | Birmingham | AA
    Tons and Tons of potential. He is the one prospect I would be most upset trading.
  4. Gio Gonzalez -- LHP | Winston-Salem | High-A
    Great numbers, good curveball. some durability issues.
  5. Ryan Sweeney -- OF | Birmingham | AA
    Power is not an issue with me... Yet. He's young for the Southern league, and I expect him to repeat at least a half-season there next year.
  6. Ray Liotta -- LHP | Kannapolis | Low-A
    He's done nothing but put up good numbers since entering the system
  7. Tyler Lumsden -- LHP | Winston-Salem | (last season)
    great stuff, injury
  8. Casey Rogowski -- 1B/OF | Birmingham | AA
    Promotion to Charlotte might be in order. I'd be interested to see how the Bandbox at Charlotte effect his power numbers
  9. Sean Tracey -- RHP | Birmingham | AA
    Sinkerballer. Good ERA at every stop, poor control.
  10. Robert Valido -- SS | Winston-Salem | High-A
    Just turned 20 (hopefully that's accurate) hitting .313/.360/.429 in the Carolina league. 28/4 SB/CS ratio
This is my subjective list, and I'm far from a minor league expert. This is mostly based on a combo of numbers and scouting reports that I've heard/read. I have not seen these guys in action very much at all.
