I am shocked Danish was left off the list. I know he was used in relief during his short time here, but kid had a 6:1 K:BB, his stuff is dirty.

Lot of question marks around Danish's mechanics, his long-term durability, and his ability to reach the Majors. Not surprised to see they want to see him do it over a full professional season.

Still, this is a nice problem to have again. Seems like the last few years we've been questioning the last few selections because the Sox didn't have 10 quality prospects to make a list. Now we're questioning selections because 10 spots isn't enough. There's still a lack of true blue chip impact prospects in these parts, but at least the overall organizational depth is recovering nicely. Baby steps.

Agreed. I just like the kids stuff a lot. The potential is there to be really good.

I agree too on the farm system. We lack the top heavy quality, but atleast their is a little depth. Not enough, but you don't build enough through 1 year. But a few more years of this and we could be in a very nice spot.

No Micker Zapata on the list either which is understandable. The next draft should load us up even more with the high pick and large signing pool.

Oh, I like Danish a lot, too, I just don't think BA puts as much emphasis on ceiling as some other prognosticators do, I think they try to find a balance between likely MLB impact and ceiling. Danish might have one of the highest ceilings in the system right now, but it's hard to make any real projection of his durability after only 30 innings of pro ball at the Rookie League and Low-A level.

Danish was left off because we have solid prospkects that are further along. I don't think it's a slight on him.

I am interested to see what they do with him next year. I wonder if they will push him as a starter, or if the goal is to convert him to a closer/RP.

I hope to see Micker Zapata on that list in the future.

From what I've read, they want to keep him as a starter and push him through the system quickly. Either they feel he's advanced, or they want to maximize his value before his arm falls off.

Thanks for the in depth response!

You really think OF is the deepest? Seems like the Sox are swimming in infield prospects.

Did Zapata even play in the Sox organization last year? I can't find anything on him other than the signing news.

Nope, he did not play in any sanctioned games. He did participate in the fall instructional league though.

Why is Thompson still considered a prospect age 24? .237 career minor league average.
