Well, it's safe to say the prospects that will be given up are fringe prospects. The reason they haven't been named is due to the Rule V draft tomorrow. Any prospects the Sox have rostered would've been named by now, since they are Rule V protected. So Malone, Borchard, Hummel, etc. will not be part of any deal. I haven't looked at the Sox 40 man, but I know Borchard is on it, and I think Malone and Hummel are as well (at least they should be).
