Bear in mind that the outfielders and pitchers are the strengths of the system, and they've been under the microscope already.

Narrowing to 5 outfielders will be hard. Jimenez, Robert, Rutherford are top 100 prospects. Then you've got Basabe, Gonzalez, Adolfo in the next tier. Where does Walker fit in?

Injuries will scramble the pitching list. The top three should still be Kopech, Cease, and Dunning in some order. Hansen's dropped, but out of the top five? Do they fill out the five with relievers (Hamilton, Burdi, Johnson, Medeiros) or are they high on Stephens, Lambert, Flores, Henzman, Battenfield, Stiever, or Pilkington?

I'm guessing they'll list more than 5 OFs since there are three positions to fill. Yeah, that's seven legit prospects you mention right there. Not just guys like Call and Booker who had decent seasons, but are not likely to ever be MLB starters.

And guys like Tyler Frost or Logan Sowers who would have made Sox top 20 lists in the pre-rebuild era.
