red sox - Hoarding promise: Why Red Sox see strength in numbers with their pitching prospects - WEEI | Alex Speier

TNSTAAPP!

Cherington, formerly the Sox’ director of player development, has plenty of experience in terms of both the reality of pitching prospects hitting on their ceilings and the impact of trading away young talent.

The Red Sox have had 22 instances of pitchers in Baseball America’s top 100 prospects list since 2000. While the career arcs of the most recent pitchers who were thusly recognized (Casey Kelly in 2010; Anthony Ranaudo and Drake Britton in 2011; Matt Barnes, Allen Webster and Henry Owens in 2013) remain to be determined, a nearly complete picture of the pre-free agent years of the pitchers who ranked among the publication’s top 100 prospects in the 10-year span from 2000-09 can be made.
