I really like this a lot - I'll be reading them over more later today... didn't notice Luke Hughes on your list ... he's still leading the Eastern League in BA/OBP/SLG/OPS so far. Not even a peep on him? :-?

Thanks for the feedback. I basically ran #s on guys based on their age and minor league level. Most of the guys are on the younger side and who are putting up respectable numbers. I also threw in a few guys who were on my top 100 list and provided an update. Thanks guys for letting me know what you think!

Look out for Michael Bowden he is pitching extremely well in Portland (AA) this season. He was the youngest pitcher in the Eastern League last season at 20 years old and struggled a bit after dominating High-A Lancaster (which is a ridiculous hitters park). There's probably a small chance that the organization calls him up to AAA after the minor league all star games/futures game, but he's still only 21 so the Sox might wait.

I actually had a conversation with someone about Bowden today. With Ortiz' recent injury, I am wondering if Boston will put Bowden on the trade block and look for a slugger. They currently have Buchholz, Lester, and Masterson who are developed through the farm system, so Bowden may witness some roadblocks on his path to the bigs.

I can't see the Theo trading Bowden simply because he knows you can never have enough arms. Bowden is only 21 years old and I don't think the Sox are in that much of a hurry to call him up to Boston. I think he's very well polished and advanced for his age and has made remarkable improvements in his secondary pitches so far this season. I've seen him pitch in Portland a few times and he has really impressed me.

I will be extremely dissapointed in the Red Sox if they trade Bowden for someone like Adam Dunn. The Red Sox are eventually going to have to find a replacement for Manny in LF and they might need to find a DH if Ortiz isn't coming back this season. I believe as a GM you need to create a winning product on the field for today, but you need to build a strong farm system for the future. Yes, the Red Sox have Lester, Buchholz, and Masterson. It's true that they've all shown flashes of brilliances and have a ton of potential, but all of them, maybe this might exclude Lester, are unproven. We all know Buchholz's potential, but his fastball command needs work. Masterson needs to continue to develop his change up in order for him to have success as a starter.

Good young pitching is a very rare commodity and I hope the Red Sox hold onto Bowden.
