The results should certainly interest Red Sox fans: Sox outfield prospect Andrew Benintendi was voted No. 1 and the recently traded Yoan Moncada was No. 2. Benintendi got 10 of the 20 votes cast, with five of the others going to Moncada. Dansby Swanson (Braves) was third and Gleyber Torres (Yankees) was fourth.
When the Red Sox traded Moncada in the package for Chris Sale, they parted with one of the top prospects in baseball while keeping another. While it will be a while before we know which of the two ends up the better MLB player, the rankings raise a good question: When the Red Sox have chosen to trade prospects in blockbuster deals, have they held onto the right ones?
Here’s a look at where some of the Red Sox’ prospects have ranked in the organization (per Baseball America’s rankings) and which players were similarly ranked at the time.
