Over at ESPNBoston.com, we had the trade deadline covered as it related to the Red Sox farm system. There weren't a bevy of prospects moving around, despite the volume of trading being done, but there was still plenty to talk about.
Ian Cundall had scouting reports on the two minor leaguers involved in today's deals. First, he dished the goods on the departed Corey Littrell, sent to St. Louis in the John Lackey deal. Later, he had the book on Eduardo Rodriguez, who he had seen in person pitching for Bowie against the Sea Dogs.
Later, Chris Hatfield wrapped up the day by taking stock of the stockpile of arms the Red Sox have now acquired between Double-A and the majors. No fewer than 10 pitchers at those three levels are 26 and younger and project as potential starters, a stash that the team could very well dip into this offseason in order to acquire another major league piece.
