Anybody have a short list (3-4 players) who made their organizational debuts and impressed the most?

I'd expect Chris Carter and Kyle McCulloch will be at the top of everyone's lists. Behind them, who should we be excited about?

Not a lot of great statistical performances from the new guys this year, but I'll continue to keep an eye on Gomez and Orlando. Gatrell apparently impressed the Sox enough to be rewarded with a late callup as AA roster filler, but that alone doesn't mean very much.

Carter was a 2005 pick. I think he played rookie ball for the Sox after that draft, but I could be wrong. I can't wait to see how he progresses on a full-season team next year, after struggling early at Kanny and getting demoted this year.

Omogrosso and Gerst. Like maurice said, stats aside, Gerst is a good baseball player, as opposed to being just a speedster. Omogrosso is two years removed from TJ surgery and is getting his slider back.
