2015 Boston Red Sox Unified Top Prospect List

It’s that time of year again–unified prospect list season! It seems that these lists come out later every year. I want to just get these finished and done with before the season starts, so those sources that have not completed their rankings yet (looking at you MLB dot com…) will not be included in this combined list.

I scrapped much of the additional coverage this year (like the graphical representation and prospects missing from the list from last year) due to time constraints.

As always, you can view a full spreadsheet for every site’s ranking for the team here, see the team list from 2014 here and view all other team lists for 2015 here.

The Red Sox have two international signees (Rusney Castillo and Yoan Moncada) that didn’t make it on every list. I gave Castillo an average ranking of three on the lists that didn’t rank him. Moncada was so late in the season that only two or three lists actually put him in the rankings. I gave him a ranking of two on the lists that missed him.

    Do you “experts” ever produce a list that reflects your WRONG selections? You know, they guys your bet on, that have been released, play poorly, never can make much beyond rookie ball? Seems to me your list is hyped, and poorly ordered, but that’s ok, you never have to admit when you are wrong …
