    It's worth noting Chavis allegedly played hurt all year last year. I'm not saying he's a guy again....but he's someone intriguing
    That 2014 draft class has looked better and better as time has gone by.

    26th pick Chavis has exploded this year.
    33rd pick Kopech had issues early, but bounced back and helped us land Sale.
    67th pick Travis battled injuries, but is now a highly ranked Sox prospect.
    164th pick Ockimey is still a raw talent, but he has big upside.

    Ben caught some flack for this draft, but now...

    Kevin Steen in critical condition after car accident.
    I told you so.

    If Kopech is as good as they say he can be then every single other player could bust and it will still have been one of the better drafts of the past several years.

    Very true.

    Kopech is showing significant control issues but immense power numbers. I understand the rationale to make him a starter, as he'd be akin to Syndergaard with that kind of power, but if he doesn't harness it, he'll end up a closer. Regardless, Sale is Kopech's ceiling and he is a now player.
    How many more years left in ARod's contract?

    He's 21, no rush to turn into a gloried closer yet.

    I am always worried about young pitchers throwing that hard. Big injury risk.

    Devers 5 for 5 with a couple of clouts last night? Guess I need to make a trip down to see him.

    We might be seeing him in Boston sooner than we expected.

    Aneury Tavares is 4-6 (2 2b, 2 HR, 1 BB) since being promoted to AAA.
    I told you so.

    It looks like this could be the year that Devers' numbers really start matching his raw talent. Still, I hope no one has the inkling to rush him to the major leagues the way Moncada was last year. He should be given all the time he needs.
    Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.

    A hint would be for him to be called up to AAA soon, but I trust Sox management to know to do the right thing.

    One thing is almost certain, although Devers is not known for great D, even with the vast improvement last year, he's better than anyone we have now on D at 3rd.

    Tavarez intrigues me not a great prospect but has been the best hitter in the system last year and this year.

    Holy cow, per @BenBadler on Instagram, the Red Sox are promoting Bryan Mata to Low A Greenville.

    Chris Hatfield‏ @SPChrisHatfield
    We really like Mata, the @SoxProspects no. 15 prospect. At age 18, this is a VERY aggressive promotion.

    Chris Hatfield‏ @SPChrisHatfield
    Mata becomes youngest in SAL, 2nd youngest in Low A. He's younger than Espinoza and Raudes were in Greenville last year.

    I told you so.
