DateQuestionAnswer
2017-07-19 17:00:00 (link to chat)Any under the radar Sox pitching prospects out there? I haven't heard or seen much, and that scares me
(Jim from Mass)
Jalen Beeks was one of the two guys I was high on over the last few months(the other was Tzu-Wei Lin, but it seems very condescending to say that now). He's in Triple-A right now after a particularly impressive run in Portland. He's worth keeping an eye on, since decent pitchers in the Red Sox's high minors seems to be a rarity lately. (Brett Cowett)
