Catcher Blake Swihart has been named as the top Red Sox prospect by Baseball America. The switch-hitting backstop made it all the way to AAA last season and might be paired with Christian Vazquez as the Boston catching tandem in 2015. Four pitchers made the Top Ten Red Sox list: LHP Henry Owens at #2; LHP Eduardo Rodriguez #4; LHP Brian Johnson #5; RHP Matt Barnes #8. OF Rusney Castillo was ranked #3 on the Baseball America list, and was also named to the Arizona Fall League All-Star Team. Also on the list were: 3B Rafael Devers #6; OF Manuel Margot #7; SS Deven Marrero #9; 3B Garin Cecchini #10
