With Xander Bogaerts in the major leagues and well on his way to being a centerpiece of the Red Sox team for the next decade, the focus shifts to who could be the next impact prospect on the farm.
It's not easy trying to figure out who the best prospects on any given team are. It's even more difficult with the Boston Red Sox, who boast a deep farm system; ESPN's Keith Law (subscription required) had them fifth in 2014's organizational farm rankings. What ESPN and other prospect sites concern themselves with in top prospect rankings is a blend of current talent, future talent, age and likelihood of reaching said talent.
By virtue of that blend, some players may go unmentioned in Top 10 prospect rankings that could end up being the next Hall of Fame talent.
