The Red Sox have started out 2-1 this year, on the road, against the Yankees. Height of optimism, right? Yes, let’s bask in the glow, and live in the moment.
Or, if your thoughts are already focused on the future, the good folks at soxprospects.com have compiled projected rosters for 2014 at every level in the Red Sox system, from the majors all the way down to the Dominican Summer League. (Tangent: They’ve listed for the DSL an outfielder who might get nannied.)
At the MLB level, they’ve listed 30 players, but some are highlighted as potentially being traded away before next season.
The differences between 2013 and 2014 at that level:
Potential Subtractions by trade:
In Pawtucket, they see the transition from starter to reliever for Drake Britton, maybe having the opportunity to pitch every Barnesday. Several of the AAA roster spots will be filled by current AA players - which you’d hope would be the case - but despite that they’d need to fill another 5-8 roster spots from outside the org. I don’t have a good sense of what is typical at AAA, but that seems to me like a lot. Maybe there’s not as much depth as I’d hoped… Uh… OK, maybe I should turn my attention to 2013 after all.
