It's really hard to predict closers from milb. Since a lot of mlb closers were SPs and infielders.

Couple names off my head now

Eduardo Morlan
Juan Salas
Ryan Braun
Chad Orvella

Bryce Cox in the Sox system has future closer written all over him, but he is at least 1-2 years away...

Craig Hansen is still higher on the pecking order and will get the first shot. Even Delcarmen could get a shot before Cox does....

Delcarmen will not get a shot before Cox. The Sox LOVE Cox and feel he was a huge steal in the third round (which he may be). He has a perfect closers mentality, and I bet that if Hansen doesn't snag the role by the end of the year you could see Cox battling to get a shot at it later in the year, unless someone has stepped up and taken it.
