Iglesias The Only Red Sox In Top 50 Prospects
Last night, the Top 50 Prospects in MLB were announced, and to my surprise, there was only one Red Sox player on the list. That player was shortstop Jose Iglesias, who despite an injury-riddled 2010, is definitely the shortstop of the future. Iglesias played the majority of his games at AA Portland last year, going .285/0/13 in 57 games, as the lack of power was striking. He prides himself as a great defensive shortstop which is definitely important as the Red Sox have a great hitting team. I expect Iglesias to get his major league debut under the belt in 2011, and probably be a starting shortstop by 2013.
