Is he a top 5 prospect like I think he is? He's mashed pretty much everywhere. I know he prob won't be at SS long term, but regardless of where he plays on the field, I think he will be an elite fantasy player in the MLB. 3B looks to be his position, but I could see the Red Sox moving him to OF

He's probably a top 10 hitter and top 20 overall.

So far Bogaerts has simply been better than his competition because he has incredible raw skills. One thing that concern me is the lack of plate discipline in AA (small sample size). His K rate is okay-ish but this could be a sign of over-aggressiveness that could be exploited by more advanced pitchers. However if he's not a top 10 overall prospect then he's really close. A lot of upside and raw skill but I wouldn't expect much this year.

Pretty much how I feel. Needs to grow a bit or will be K'd like crazy against advanced pitchers.
