Pawtucket roster laden with talent on the cusp of the bigs


The Triple-A Pawtucket Red Sox announced their roster today. Across the board, the team is loaded with top-tier talent, and should rank as one of the top teams to watch in the minors. 

The PawSox begin the 2015 season with nine of SoxProspects.com's top 20 prospects, including the number one prospect, catcher Blake Swihart (pictured). Swihart and $72.5 million man Rusney Castillo are the two biggest position players to watch, with the expectation of seeing both in a Boston uniform sometime in the near future.

In Henry Owens, Eduardo Rodriguez, and Brian Johnson, SoxProspects.com's third, sixth, and seventh ranked prospects, respectively, the rotation has three top-flight left-handed pitching prospects. Matt Barnes, fresh off of narrowly missing out on a spot in the Boston bullpen, and Keith Couch will round out the rotation. Brandon Workman, Dalier HinojosaNoe Ramirez, Miguel Celestino, Zeke Spruill, and Heath Hembree are all part of an intriguing bullpen full of players who could contribute in Boston at some point this year.

Pawtucket opens the season on April 9 in the Lehigh Valley.
