Moncada Is Number Two On Baseball Prospectus Top 50
The influential Baseball Prospectus site has re-shuffled their Top 50 MLB Prospects list at the mid-point of the 2016 season—and there is good news for the Red Sox. Yoan Moncada (2B) comes in at #2 overall on the new list—topped only by Phillies shortstop prospect J.P. Crawford. All told, Boston places four prospects on the list. The other three are: Andrew Benintendi (OF) at #11, Rafael Devers (3B) #19, and Anderson Espinoza (RHP) #24. Interestingly, a former top Sox prospect—Manuel Margot (CF)—came in at #16. Margot was part of the package sent to San Diego for Craig Kimbrel.
