    Re: 2014 Top 100 Prospects

    I think strong finish can place Marrero in top 100 soon.  He didn't really have top 100 prospect caliber season offensively before this year.  I can also see Devers easily making top 100 very soon.

    Marreros bat has largely disappointed until recently.  With more of an established track record He'll crack the top 100.  Still, he might be in some peoples top 100 right now. 

    6 in the top 100 is pretty good.

    Not looking good for Detroit at zero.

     

    Even the Yanks squeaked 2 in.

    Marreros bat has largely disappointed until recently.

    Maybe your expectations on offense for a SS is pretty high, but I think Marrero has looked fine on offense at every level of play:

    In college he never batted below .284 or had an OBP below .340.

    With Lowell he was .268/.358 (248 ABs).

    With Salem he was .256/.341 in 376 PAs.

    With Portland he was .279/.361 in 392 PAs.

    So far at Pawtucket he is at .308/.349 in 84 PAs.

    If he can hit .260/.330 in MLB and play near GG defense, I think he'd be the best SS this team has had for a long time.

    Even if he hits .240/.310 and is a top 5 defensive SS, he's a net plus in my book.

    Lot of guys on that list just Drafted in June, I wonder how they were evaluated. Also a kid like CJ Edwards hasn't pitched since April, just promoted to Double AA too.

    In terms of 'Prospect Points', Red Sox are ranked 4th behind Cubs, Twins & Pirates.

    Re: 2014 Top 100 Prospects

    Pirates are supposed to be one of the teams pushing for Miller. Seems like there's a pretty solid pool of prospects to choose from in return if that winds up being the trade partner.

    I understand where his numbers are, but there is a huge difference between hitting .256 in A ball and then being able to carry at least that average over into the Majors.  If a guy is hitting .250 in A ball, it usually doesn't bode well for him.

    The fact that he is hitting better now in the upper minors bodes well for his future.  But there is a reason why he didn't make the top 100....track record.

    I haven't seen him play (of course).  Have you?  If you have, can you say whether he is as good as Iglesias (fielding only)?  Thanks

    I've seen him play, and I talked to a scout once at a Portland sea dogs game who was watching as well as other blogs I've read too.

    The consensus I get is this.  If Iglesias was the best defensive player to come through the Sox system in a long time then Jackie Bradley Jr. is 3rd....because Marrero is 2nd. 

    He's not as flashy as Iglesias, but he might be more reliable as he has sure hands, great range, a quick first step, and a powerful arm.

    I agree, but I have been far from "disappointed" by his hitting. That was my point.

    I never said he was as good as Iggy, but I trust the scouting reports.

    No, I have not seen him play yet, but fielding is the easiest skill set to judge.

    Exactly. The argument is basically the same from my point of view.

    Saving hits makes up for the lack of getting hits, and sometimes more.

    Pretty good. He's ahead of Johnson, Barnes, T Ball, and Marrero.

    I wonder where soxprospects will place him and Hembree.
