The Boston Red Sox added even more talent to their loaded farm system this week, landing two of the top international prospects on the market in right-handers Anderson Espinoza and Christopher Acosta.
Neither Espinoza nor Acosta will crack this ranking quite yet, but that speaks to the impressive depth the Sox have built throughout the minor leagues in the past few years. Players such as Deven Marrero, Rafael Devers and Brian Johnson have yet to crack the list, and they'd be no-doubt top-10 prospects for many other organizations.
As the trade deadline looms and the Red Sox figure to be sellers, we should see some movement on this list soon, as many prospects will ascend to the majors and lose their eligibility. For now, though, this organization is about as crowded as it gets when it comes to minor league talent.
Players who have exceeded 130 PA or 50 innings pitched in the majors are not eligible for these rankings. All stats as of July 5, 2014.
