As the calendar changes to July, the time has come to really take stock in what the Boston Red Sox have to offer in their farm system.
The first-place Red Sox will look to their deep prospect field in search of pieces to move at the trade deadline. Plenty of options are open for Boston to consider as it tries to make a run at its first postseason berth since 2009.

The following players were the top-10 ranked prospects entering the season according to Baseball America.
Please note: Players recently drafted by the Red Sox will not be included, as they do not have any statistics to draw from. If you would like more information about Boston’s most recent additions to the minor league system via the draft, have a look at their scouting profiles right here on B/R.
