Default All Star Break 2019

Assuming Kopech and Eloy are already up midseason next year what other upper echelon prospects have a chance at being on the verge of a call up?

Collins? His OPS is closer to .900 than .800 for the year.
Cease?

If Rutherford gets promoted in the minors and has a great first half is he close?

Watching this **** team day after day, i’d like to at least imagine a scenario where, at the very least, I am watching a few more players who should be a part of the long term plan - regardless of their success.

Note: not “rushing the rebuild.” Not comlaining about the rebuild.

Just looking for some reassuring sentiment on the next wave of minor league talent outside of Eloy and Kopech.

Unfortunately, I wouldn't assume anything about Kopech. So far Kopech has been terrible.

I saw a write up of Kopech today that said his floor is Glasnow. Yuck. Glasnow has much of the same control issues, and sucks.

Collins? Doubtful. While his plate discipline and power and excellent, the Sox want him to stick at catcher and therefore I think he'll finish this season at Birmingham and do a full season next year at Charlotte.


Cease is not likely to get promoted again this year, so he'll finish at Birmingham and at best starts 2018 in Charlotte. A mid-2019 callup is theoretically possible if he keeps dominating, but I think 2020 is more likely.



Rutherford is still at Winston-Salem and there isn't room in the Birmingham outfield this year. He was drafted out of high school and just turned 21 in May. He'll finish the year there, and start 2019 in Birmingham. I'd expect him to do a full season in AA and at least a half-season in Charlotte, so to me even the most optimistic projection would be mid-2020.


For 2019, I think we're more likely to see Jordan Stephens (if he doesn't get called up this year), Spencer Adams, Ian Hamilton, Thyago Vieira, and Zack Burdi (contingent on his rehab progress).

I would have put Dunning on the 2019 radar if not for his injury. Even if he pitches in the Arizona Fall League this year, I think the most optimistic case is that he splits time between Birmingham and Charlotte next year. So I’m penciling him in for 2020 along with Cease and Hansen.
