MLB Future Power Rankings (INSIDER)

1. Boston Red Sox

The overview
The challenge for the Red Sox now is to find the best way to turn some of their position-player surplus into pitching. They bet heavily on Sandoval, Ramirez and Moncada in a way other teams wouldn’t dream of because of the uncertainty involved.—Buster Olney

The dilemma
The Red Sox still lack a true top-of-rotation starter; having one would make them the favorite to represent the American League in the World Series once again. So far they’ve been reluctant to give up the prospect package it would take to land Cole Hamels, but they’re also hoping other aces join the trade market between now and the trade deadline.—Jim Bowden

Impact prospect
Rusney Castillo offers plus defense in center field and has surprising power for someone his size, although I think there are still reasonable questions about how advanced his bat is.—Keith Law

This list is invalid however, because the Mariners are not #6, they’re #14!!!!
