Boston Red Sox: Full Overview of Red Sox Farm System and Prospects for 2013

There is no way to sugarcoat what happened to the Boston Red Sox, at least at the big league level, in 2012. Anything and everything that could possibly go wrong did, as the team endured its worst season since 1965. 

Bobby Valentine lost the clubhouse before the team ever stepped foot on the field for a regular season game. Injuries mounted early, with no impact players at the high levels of the minors ready to step in. 

But for all the bad things that happened, there were a lot of positive developments down on the farm. The system looks very good at the top thanks to strong performances from homegrown talent, as well as a few additions made by trades late in the season. 

The Red Sox did a lot of strange things this offseason, like the Shane Victorino contract and trying to finalize a deal with Mike Napoli. But the key to the 2013 season for this franchise will be keeping an eye on the top of the system. 

Here is a look ahead to what this season will bring the Red Sox, their top prospects, players who could make an impact in 2013 and where things stand with the farm system.
