Week 3 in the books. Here's what I'm interested in:
Lewis Brinson – 13 for 29, 3 doubles, 2 HR, 1 SB. Another A+ offensive week from Brinson, who is now hitting .370/.400/.652 through 46 AB for the Sky Sox. Brinson is ready to go and could contribute in Milwaukee right
Actually the first full week of minor league baseball. Some prospects saw promotions, some saw season ending injuries, and everything in between.
Andrew Benintendi saw his 130th AB last Tuesday, making him no longer a prospect. Adrian Morejon replaces him as #100 on MLB’s top 100 prospects list.
Jay Groome – Placed
Ok, so week 1 wasn't really a full week. It was more like 2-3 games. But Minor League Baseball is under way and some of the games best prospects have gotten off to noteworthy starts.
Yoan Moncada – 8 for 16, 1 homerun, 1 stolen base. Hell of a week for
Kevin Kiermaier is an incredible center fielder. He covers an insane amount of ground. He has a cannon for an arm. He can jump up and rob a home run like the best of them.
He also gives 110%, even when he’s not even close to making the play.

You know the top prospect in baseball, Andrew Benintendi. You probably know power hitting third baseman, Rafael Devers, and the Red Sox 2017 1st round selection, Jason Groome. But to the average fan, the Red Sox farm system past the top 3 guys is seemingly devoid of much talent. That
The sac fly. We see it all the time. The batter hits it hard and deep, but just not well enough. The runner tags and scores, and both players get their share of high fives from the dugout. Here is Gary Sanchez hitting a sacrifice fly on an (attempted) intentional
The Red Sox were far and away the most active club around the MLB Tuesday, as they acquired All Star lefty Chris Sale, Brewers RP Tyler Thornburg, and signed Gold Glove first baseman Mitch Moreland
In what should be the biggest blockbuster trade of the offseason, the Red Sox acquired starter Chris
2016 was an overall successful season for Jackie Bradley Jr. The Red Sox center fielder hit .267/.349/.486 with 26 home runs and 30 doubles. He made his first All-Star appearance along with 5 of his teammates behind a 29-game hitting streak and great defense in center. For most players, this
The Angels Mike Trout is your 2016 American League MVP. The award is Trout’s second. Trout had another brilliant year at the plate, hitting .315 while leading the league with a .441 OBP. He smashed 29 homeruns and stole 30 bases, leaving him 1 homerun short of being the
There is no way to replace David Ortiz in Boston. In his final season, Ortiz hit .315 with 38 homeruns, while leading the league in SLG%, OPS, RBIs, and doubles. Aside from the fact that he had what could easily be considered the greatest final season in MLB history, Ortiz
