Toronto does not have a big time impact prospect. Gose might be able to parlay his speed into something, but he strikes out too much to be an ideal leadoff guy.
Hecchavaria is an enigma. Can't hit AA, but rakes in AAA. Definitely has something to do with the league- the PCL is a notoriously big time hitter league. You could probably go .300 25-100 there.
D'Arnaud looks good, but we all know how full time catchers kind of slow down in the hitting department once they it the bigs. He is definitely going to be a big league regular...not sure if he will be a big time impact guy though.
Not much pitching talent there as well.
The Rays, simply put, graduated everyone in their system worth mentioning so they are behind the Sox IMO. They got Hak-Ju Lee and Chris Archer, but they don't have much after.
Red Sox have the 3rd best prospect in the division.
Divisional Top 5
4. D'Arnaud (he is a surefire MLB player)
