SoxProspects Site Management/Community Top 40 Lists


With another minor league (regular) season reaching its end, it is time to take stock of the year that was in 2011 in the Red Sox farm system. Over the next few weeks, we will reveal our yearly all-star and end-of-season award-winners, as well as several other new season wrap-up pieces for you to enjoy.

Today, we start with one of these new features, as the three members of the SoxProspects.com site management team share their respective end-of-season top 40 prospect lists. We also include a yearly tradition, the SoxProspects.com community’s end-of-season top 40, as voted on by members of our forum. The brass and community all agree that third baseman Will Middlebrooks has become the top prospect in the system, but the four lists diverge from there. As common as it is for our forum members to have differences of opinion on players, so to do the three of us, who each bring different perspectives to the table when we collaborate to make the site’s official ranking.

Without further adieu, on to the lists!

* - Michael Bowden was eligible for the community voting and was ranked 36th. However, since the community voting ended, Bowden reached the 50-inning threshold in the major leagues, and we thus considered him graduated for the purposes of this feature. That decision also considered that he is out of options, unlike, say, Ryan Kalish.
