Re-Ranking Boston Red Sox's Top 10 Prospects After the Deadline
USA TODAY Sports

The 2014 MLB trade deadline has come and gone, and the Boston Red Sox have undergone an extreme roster makeover. 

Gone are the likes of Jon Lester, John Lackey, Jake Peavy, Felix Doubront, Stephen Drew, Andrew Miller and Jonny Gomes. In their place, we see Yoenis Cespedes, Allen Craig, Joe Kelly, Kelly Johnson, Heath Hembree, Eduardo Rodriguez, Edwin Escobar and other talented players poised to impact the Sox for years to come. 

All the moving and shaking means that younger players will get chances to prove themselves for the remainder of the 2014 season, as Boston looks to shape its roster for 2015 and beyond. That means it's also a good time to re-evaluate Boston's deep minor league system, and to re-rank their best prospects with new acquisitions, recent promotions and 2014 performances all taken into account. 

The Sox may have "lost" Xander Bogaerts, Jackie Bradley Jr. and Brandon Workman in terms of eligibility, but they still feature an incredibly deep system that will allow them tremendous flexibility moving forward.
