Default RIP Daniel Flores (Red Sox prospect)

He was only 17 and died of complications due to cancer. He was listed as their 5th best prospect (and I vaguely recall discussion of him being in the Sale trade). http://mlb.nbcsports.com/2017/11/08/...cer-treatment/

Horrible, sad news. 17!! One of my closest friends died of pancreatic cancer about 6 years ago. It's usually a bad diagnosis to receive and the prognosis is often worse. But 17 years old?! R.I.P. The Red Sox seem to have had a few young prospects diagnosed with cancer (Lester, Rizzo and now Flores).

I thought I read on a different site that he was MLB's #5, BoSox #1.

Either way and regardless of what he was doing in life, tragic loss at such a young age.
