According to, a new poll of baseball executives shows that Boston's Andrew Beneintendi is the #1 prospect in all of baseball. Ironically, finishing second is former Red Sox top prospect Yoan Moncada—traded to The Pale Hose for Chris Sale. The likely starting Red Sox LF garnered ten votes—twice as many Moncada's five. Atlanta's Dansby Swanson, and Gleyber Torres of The Evil Ones finished third and fourth, respectively. Although Benintendi had 105 ABs last year (hitting .295 you might remember), he is still under the 130-AB threshold for rookie status in 2017.
