Moncada Jumps Over Swihart On Prospect List

Major League Baseball's revised ranking of Red Sox prospects places newly-acquired Cuban free agent Yoan Moncada on top of the list. He replaces Blake Swihart, who had been considered the team's top prospect for some time, and is now ranked as #2. Rounding out the new top five are: #3—LHP Henry Owens; #4—LHP Eduardo Rodriguez; #5—3B Rafael Devers. Devers has been getting quite a bit of ink lately—and was singled out by Baseball America as Boston's #1 power-hitting prospect.
