Teams

Ty Douglas Buttrey (born March 31, 1993) is a starting pitcher who plays in the Boston Red Sox Minor League system. Listed at 6' 6", 235 lb., he bats left handed and throws right handed.[1]

The Red Sox selected Buttrey in the 4th round of the 2012 MLB Draft out of Providence High School in Charlotte, North Carolina, signing him a bonus of $1,300,000. He posted a 9–2 record with a 0.91 earned run average and a 100 strikeouts as a senior, averaging 13.04 strikeouts per 9 innings pitched.[2] The Boston organization think that Buttrey is a highly projectable power pitcher with good size, but still he needs to grow into his frame.[1]

Following four games for the Gulf Coast League Red Sox in 2012, Buttrey pitched his first full professional season in 2013 with Low-A Lowell Spinners of the New York–Penn League, where he went 4–3 with a 2.21 ERA in 13 games started. In addition, he struck out 35 batters, did not allow a home run in 61 innings and was a model of consistency in preventing runs, allowing over two earned runs just twice in his 13 starts.[2]

But Buttrey put his professional career in jeopardy in 2014, as he spent the year dealing with some injuries and ineffectiveness, resulting in a 6.85 ERA with Class A Greenville Drive. He made some necessary adjustments since then, and earned a promotion to High-A Lowell Spinners after a 1–0 record with a 2.45 ERA in four starts and 22 innings for Greenville to begin 2015.

In his first seven starts at Salem, Buttrey went 5–0 with a 1.71 ERA in 42 innings, being unbeaten in his combined 11 starts between A and High-A in 2015. He finished with an 8–10 record in 21 starts for Salem and was a tough luck loser, as he pitched 14 quality starts, but in five of those 14 starts was charged with the loss. Overall, he went 9–10 with a 3.92 ERA in 25 starts for Greenville and Salem, including 103 strikeouts against 48 walks in 137⅔ innings, which represents a significant progress for the young pitcher.[2]

Buttrey is currently rated as the Red Sox's No. 26 prospect, according to MLB.com.[3]

In addition, he was an All-State selection in 2011 and 2012.[4]

Late in the year, Callahan made his professional debut with the GCL Red Sox, going 1–0 with a 5.19 ERA and seven strikeouts in 8⅔ innings. In 2012 he gained a promotion to Short Season A Lowell Spinners, where he finished with a 5–1 record and a 3.92 ERA in 13 games, while striking out 54 in 59⅔ innings.[4]

Callahan opened 2014 at Low A Greenville Drive. In his second start of the season he struck out 11 batters, tying a team record set by Pete Ruiz in 2010. Those strikeouts came in just five innings for Callahan, who also allowed a pair of runs on five hits and one walk but did not have a decision.[4] He then started to show flashes of brilliance in July and August after a dreadful first four months of the season. Overall, he posted a 9–14 record with a 5.85 ERA in 43 games (41 starts), striking out 150 batters and walking 86 in 177 innings of work.

Callahan returned to Greenville in 2015 and improved after moving to the bullpen as a middle reliever, compiling a 7–6 record with a 4.53 ERA and three saves in 31 games, with a total of 89⅓ innings pitched to go with 94 strikeouts and 33 walks.

Michael Chavis is a third baseman and shortstop who plays in the Boston Red Sox organization.[5]

The Red Sox selected Chavis out of Sprayberry High School in Marietta, Georgia, as their first pick (26th overall) of the 2014 MLB Draft.[6]

Committed to Clemson University before being drafted, Chavis won the home run derby at the Perfect Game All-American Classic in 2014. As a senior he won Gatorade Baseball Player of the Year honors for Georgia, after hitting a slash line of .580/.663/1,197 in 28 games, including 13 home runs, nine doubles. one triple, 37 RBI and 30 runs, while stealing 21 bases.[7]

Chavis started his professional career with the Rookie Level GCL Red Sox in their 2014 season. He struggled early this season, but he showed he was past his adjustment period to pro ball in August, when he hit .372/.430/.590/1,020 in 72 at-bats, finishing his rookie year with an average of .269 (36-for-134), one home run and 16 RBI in 39 games.[5] He then belted a homer and drove in five runs in three playoff games, to help the Red Sox clinch the Gulf Coast League championship.[8]

Chavis opened 2015 with the Class Low-A Greenville Drive, where his main asset was power, as he hit 15 home runs on the year to led the Red Sox system. But he also had 144 strikeouts in 435 at bats to just 29 walks, while slashing .223/.277/.405 with 58 RBI in 109 games.[5]

A top prospect in the organization, Chavis has shown flashes of why he was a first-round draft pick, but clearly he needs to make major progress with his approach at the plate to fulfill his true potential. He is currently rated as the Red Sox's No. 10 prospect, according to MLB.com.[3]

Keith Gilbert Couch is a pitcher who plays in the Boston Red Sox Minor League system. Listed at 6 feet 2 inches (1.88 m), weighing 210 pounds (95 kg), he bats left handed and throws right handed.[9]

Additionally, he led the team with 76⅓ innings pitched and 83 strikeouts, to be named the team's Most Valuable Player.[10]

Couch debuted professionally with the Short-Season A Lowell Spinners in 2010, ending with a 1–6 mark and a 4.39 ERA in 14 games. He improved in 2011 at Low A Greenville Drive, where he went 7–6 with a 3.64 ERA, striking out 123 batters and walking only 19 in 137⅓ innings of work. Besides, he topped Greenville and tied for second among Red Sox minor leaguers in strikeouts and finished ninth in the South Atlantic League in ERA. As a result, he was rated by Baseball America as having the best control in the Boston system at the end of the season.[10]

In 2012 Couch had a productive season at High A Salem Red Sox, ending with an 11–9 mark and a 3.45 ERA, while recording a strikeout-to-walk ratio of 3.21 (109-to-34) in 145⅔ innings. After that, he spent most of 2013 with the Double-A Portland Sea Dogs, where he went 11–3 with a 3.47 ERA and 92/43 SO/BB in 129⅔ innings.[9]

Coach would return to the Sea Dogs in 2014. He went 7–1 with a 3.16 ERA in his first 14 starts through late June, but was sidelined on the disabled list for more than a month.[11] He came back to Portland on August 9 and appeared in just five games, ending the season with an 8–2 record and a 2.96 ERA in 15 starts. He then was promoted to the Pawtucket Red Sox in the event the PawSox qualify for the International League postseason, but he was not used until the final game.[9]

Couch was scheduled to start the decisive game of the best-of-five series for Pawtucket on 16 days rest. He was solid in his Triple-A debut, pitching 6⅔ innings of one-hit, shutout baseball, walking two and striking out four to pick up the win, as Pawtucket defeated the Durham Bulls, 4–1, to win the International League championship, taking home their second Governors' Cup in three years.[12][13]

But Couch truly struggled in his first full season at Pawtucket, posting four straight losses after opening the year with a win. He then delivered his best start of 2015, having a no-hitter through six innings before allowing a single to the leadoff batter in the seventh, en route to his second win allowing just two runs on five hits with three strikeouts and one walk. Eventually, he was summoned to the bullpen and finished with a 4–10 record and a 6.14 ERA over 21 starts and five relief appearances.[9]

Mauricio Andre Dubón [doo-bone'] (born July 19, 1994) is a shortstop who plays in the Boston Red Sox Minor League system. Listed at 6' 0" [1.83 m]. 160 lb. [73 k], he bats and throws right handed.[14]

Dubón was born and grew up in Honduras, where he attended a bilingual school. After a Christian baseball mission group visited Honduras when he was 15, Dubón had to work harder to get attention on the field. The Capital Christian High School head baseball coach Nelson Randolph was there and saw Dubón play. As a result, Randolph asked him if he wanted to come back to the United States with the group so he could hone his baseball skills while attending high school. After that, Dubón moved to Sacramento, California permanently in 2011 as a foreign exchange student.[15][16]

The Red Sox selected Dubón in the 26th round of the 2013 MLB Draft. He posted a .509 batting average (86-for-169) after his junior and senior year at Capital Christian High School, including 23 doubles, 14 triples, eight home runs and 81 RBI before being drafted by Boston. He was ranked by Baseball America as the best defensive player among the 2013 Red Sox draft picks.[17]

After batting .245 in 20 games for the GCL Red Sox shortly after signing, Dubón was promoted to the Lowell Spinners in 2014 and ranked among the best ten in the New York–Penn League with a .320 batting average (82-for-256).[18]

Dubón was even more productive in 2015 in the South Atlantic League. Serving mostly as No. 2 hitter for the Greenville Drive, he hit .364 through his first 11 games and had hit safely in 10 of those contests. He finished the season with the Salem Red Sox of the Carolina League, hitting a combined .288/.349/.376 slash line with 30 stolen bases in 120 games during the two stints.[14] He then was invited by the Boston Red Sox to participate on its 2016 spring training.[19]

Dubón is currently rated as the Red Sox's No. 12 prospect, according to MLB.com.[3] He has emerged as perhaps the best prospect shortstop in the system because he is a more solid hitter than Deven Marrero and a better defender than Marco Hernández.[3]

He was previously selected by the Cleveland Indians in the 46th round of the 2010 Draft out of Sierra College but did not sign.

Haley posted an 8–4 record with a 2.77 ERA and 117 strikeouts in 120 innings for the Fresno State Bulldogs from 2011 to 2012.[20] A three-year letterwinner and three-time all-league selection, he also played in the basketball team.[21] Haley is described as having a hard fastball, which he throws between 91–93 mph and occasionally will touch 95 mph with heavy downward action.

The one pockmark on his resume was the 75 walks, which were fourth-most in the South Atlantic League.[22]

In 2014 Haley was promoted to the High A Salem Red Sox, where he refined his command and control. He went 7–4 with a 2.82 ERA and 74 strikeouts in 19 games (11 starts), giving up just 23 walks in 92⅔ innings (2.7 W/9), a significant improvement over his previous season at Greenville (5.3 W/9). Additionally, he had a solid 1.079 WHIP in his 92-plus innings of work. As a result, he was named SoxProspects.com pitcher of the week for May 12–18 and earned Carolina League pitcher of the week honors for June 2–8. He also made the Carolina League All-Star team earlier this season before being promoted to the Double A Portland Sea Dogs on July 29.[20]

Haley returned to Portland in 2015, and made 27 starts for a total of 124 innings pitched.[20] He pitched well enough to earn eight quality starts, but was limited by a brief groin injury suffered in mid-May, followed by bad luck and low run support in many outings, ending with a 5–16 record and a 5.15 ERA along with 95 strikeouts and 50 walks.[20][24] Haley pitched his best outing of the year on August 13, allowing just one hit of shutout ball in seven innings, while striking out six and walking none. It was his longest outing and also matched a team high for the Sea Dogs in 2015.[25] To his credit, Haley only just passed the 100-inning threshold at Double A level.

The Red Sox selected Jerez in the second round of the 2011 MLB Draft, signing him a bonus of $443,700.[26] Jerez started his career as an outfielder, but was converted to a pitcher during extended spring training in 2014. He made his debut with the Gulf Coast League Red Sox in 2012 and collected hits in 11 of 12 games during one early-season stretch, plling his batting average as high as .340, but eventually he tapered off. He finished the year batting .248 with five stolen bases, three triples, and just six walks in 32 games.[26]

In 2012, Jerez started 32 games with the Short-Season A Lowell Spinners before missing the remainder of the season with hand injury. Prior to injury, Jerez batted .241 (20-for-83) with five RBI and three stolen bases. Then in 2013, he appeared in 38 games and hit a paltry .138 average in 38 games while playing right and centerfield for Lowell. But Jerez turned his career around after moving from outfield to pitcher in 2014. In that season, he posted a 3–1 record with a 2.22 ERA and one save coming out of bullpen for the GCL Red Sox. He ended the season at Lowell, going 1–1 with a 4.50 ERA.[26]

Observers were largely in agreement on Kopech’s stock, with Baseball America (37th),[30] ESPN.com’s Keith Law (40th),[31] and MLB.com (41st)[32] all placing him in the same range on their respective top prospect lists.

Kopech started his professional career with the Rookie Level Gulf Coast League Red Sox in their 2014 season.[33] He posted a 0–1 record and a 4.61 ERA in eight starts, which included 16 strikeouts and nine walks in 13⅓ innings pitched.

Travis Clay Lakins is a starting pitcher who plays in the Boston Red Sox Minor League system. Listed at 6' 1", 180 lb., he bats and throws right handed.[35]

The Red Sox selected Lakins in the 6th round of the 2015 MLB Draft out of The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio, signing him for an above-slot bonus of $320,000. He opened 2016 ranking as Boston's third-best right-handed pitching prospect and No. 11 overall in the organization sandwiched between Michael Chavis and Mauricio Dubón, according to MLB.com.[3]

Lakins flashed three potential plus offerings in just two shutout innings during his only appearance with Short Season A Lowell Spinners in 2015. He then pitched for the GCL Red Sox but only in the playoffs.[35]

In his brief stint, Lakins showed a quick arm from a three-quarters arm slot, featuring a three-pitch mix with a fastball-curveball-changeup combination, with his fastball sitting at 92-94 mph and topping out at 96 with a bit of sink and run. The curveball flashed plus-potential at 75-76 mph with two-plane, tight rotation and hard snap, while the changeup ranged from 83-87 mph and also showed plus potential with late dive away from left-handed hitters when down in the zone. Besides, he used a heavy mix of curveballs and changeups both early and behind in counts, showing consistency with the secondaries pitches and refined command and control overall.[3][35]

In 2016, Lakins was promoted two levels up to High Class A full season Salem Red Sox. In the month of April, Lakins led the Salem pitching staff with a 3-1 record and a 2.13 ERA in four starts, striking out 26 and walking 10 in 25⅓ innings of work.[35]

Springfield, Massachusetts
Bats: Right Throws: Left
Teams

Nicholas Edward Longhi [lon'-ne] (born August 16, 1995) is a first baseman and outfielder who plays in the Boston Red Sox Minor League system. Listed at 6' 2", 205 lb., he bats right handed and throws left handed.[36]

The Red Sox selected Longhi in the 30th round of the 2013 MLB Draft out of Venice High School in Florida, where he helped the Venice Indians win the Florida 7A State Championship and finish No. 2 in the final national rankings in 2013. By the time Longhi was a senior at Venice, he was a Rawlings first team All-American and played in almost every major tournament for Perfect Game. Longhi came to terms on a contract calling for a reported over-slot bonus of $450,000, the fourth-highest bonus handed out by the Sox, with the organization buying him out of a commitment to Louisiana State University.[37]

Longhi was rated by Baseball America at No. 8 as one of the best pure hitters in the 2013 high school draft class.[38] He is a rare right-handed hitting, left handed throwing outfielder who possesses a strong arm, delivering 91–93 mph fastballs when he was a two-way player in high school. Versatile enough to play at first base, he is also a solid-average defender with strong instincts, soft hands and good footwork.[36]

Longhi debuted with the GCL Red Sox late in 2013, playing for them 16 games before joining the Lowell Spinners in 2014. He was hitting a .330/.388/.440 slash line over 121 at-bats for the Spinners before landing on the disabled list with a torn UCL in his thumb on July 24. The injury required surgery, but Longhi completed an offseason workout program and gained a promotion to the Greenville Drive in 2015.[36]

In 2015 Longhi played mostly right field for a Drive squad that was thin in the position, and he showed adequate actions and plenty of arm in the field.[39] Longhi looked to be in noticeably better shape than past seasons, looking stronger, quicker, and more agile in the field and on the basepaths. He appeared more mature, even though he was young for his 2013 draft class and turned 20 years old in August. As a result, his .281/.338/.403 line with seven home runs, 22 doubles, three triples and 62 RBI was significant, because he was facing pitchers two or more years older than him who could throw 90 mph regularly and get up to 95 mph.[36][40]

Longhi is currently rated as the Red Sox's No. 17 prospect, according to MLB.com.[3]

In 2016, Mars was promoted to High-A Salem Red Sox.

Simón Mercedes is a Dominican Republic pitcher who plays in the Boston Red Sox Minor League system. Listed at 6' 4", 240 lb., he bats throws right handed.[44]

Mercedes was signed as an amateur free agent with the Boston organization, and came to terms on a contract calling for a reported bonus of $800,000. Considered one of the hardest throwers in the system, his fastball sits 91–96 mph and reportedly can hit 100 mph. He also throws a 76–82 mph curveball and a changeup who works best at 82–84 mph.[44]

Mercedes, who pitched four innings of shutout ball in one game for the Dominican Summer League Red Sox in 2012, was headed for a short-season assignment with the Lowell Spinners in 2013. He was strong as a starter at the beginning of the season, allowing two earned runs in 15⅓ innings over three starts, but was demoted to the bullpen for the remainder, averaging nearly five innings per relief appearance. As a reliever, he struck out more than a hitter per inning and totaled almost five strikeout for every base on balls. He finished his season on a high note, pitching three innings of one-hit, four-strikeout ball to register his first professional save on August 31.[44]

Mercedes opened 2014 with Class A Salem Red Sox, even though he spent some time on the disabled list early in the season. He then was placed in Lowell on a rehabilitation assignment before returning to Salem.[44] Mercedes finished the year with a subpar record of 5–10 and a 4.76 ERA in 22 games, 15 as a starter. He then joined the Portland Sea Dogs in 2015 and was dominant but inconsistent, going 3–3 with 4.88 ERA and 63 strikeouts in 79⅓ innings of relief in his Double-A debut.[44] He returned to Portland in 2016.

He has solid power potential and above-average speed, combined with a strong arm and the ability to play well at all three outfield positions.[45]

Ramos steadily progressed with High-A Salem Red Sox in 2013, hitting a slash line of .252/.330/.416 with 12 home runs and 11 stolen bases in 129 games, including 27 doubles, seven triples, 55 RBI and 69 runs scored, and started 2014 at Double A Portland Sea Dogs. He had a breakthrough season with the Sea Dogs before suffering a stress fracture in his left tibia. He then injured himself on May 28 when he fouled a pitch off his leg. At the time, Ramos had collected a .326 average and slugged .431 in 48 games, including 26 runs, 23 RBI, 13 extra bases and a .368 on-base percentage.[45] Ramos returned to Portland in 2015, following a knee surgery, but was headed to the disabled list.[11] He batted a .257/.335/.347 line in 48 games between Portland, Salem and GCL Red Sox.[45] He opened 2016 at Portland.

Ramos is currently rated as the Red Sox's No. 23 prospect, according to MLB.com.[3]

Bats: Right Throws: Right
Teams

Wendell Rijo [ree'-ho] (born September 5, 1995) is a Dominican second baseman who plays in the Boston Red Sox minor league system. Listed at 5' 11", 170 lb., he bats and throws right handed.[46]

Rijo was signed by the Red Sox as an international free agent in March 2012 and joined immediately the Gulf Coast League Red Sox. Primarily a shortstop, he moved to second base after making his professional debut.

Rijo showed very good contact skills as a 17-year-old in the rookie-level GCL Red Sox, despite being one of the youngest regulars in the league. He posted team-highs in runs (28), hits (46), doubles (15), RBI (20), and stolen bases (15), while collecting a .271 batting average with a .368 on-base percentage in 40 games. His season was punctuated by a solid 16-game stretch in July, during which he hit a .415/.508/.585 slash line with nine doubles and nine walks, while slashing .299/.373/.416 in his final 43 games. His GCL efforts were enough to merit a three-game stint with Class Short-Season A Lowell Spinners in September, and he went 5-for-14 with one double and a triple, as well as at least one hit in each game.[46]

In 2014 Rijo joined the Low A Greenville Drive, where he hit .254/.348/.416 in 111 games, including 56 runs, 46 RBI and 16 stolen bases, gaining a promotion to the High A Salem Red Sox in 2015. He finished the year with a .260/.324/.381 line along with 47 RBI and 15 steals in 108 games, to complete two full seasons in the organization. He then was promoted to Double A Portland Sea Dogs in 2016.

Rijo is currently rated as the Red Sox's No. 18 prospect, according to MLB.com.[3]

Robert John Scott is a middle relief pitcher who plays in the Boston Red Sox organization. Listed at 6' 3", 220 lb., he is a switch-hitter and throws left-handed.

The Red Sox signed Scott as a non-drafted free agent in August 2011 out of Florida State University after transferring from Broward community college.

Scott throws from a 3/4 arm slot and commands a 93 mph fastball to both corners. His secondary offerings include an 11–5 curveball that works 71–73 mph with long, two-plane break, and a 79–81 mph straight changeup that shows late drop, which is also effective against right-handed hitters.[47]

In 2011, Scott posted a 2–1 record with a 0.75 earned run average and two saves in 13 games for the Yuma Scorpions of the independent North American League before the Red Sox purchased his contract. Overall, he collected 35 strikeouts while giving up only 12 hits and six walks in 24 innings, including 19 strikeouts over 11 scoreless innings for Yuma.[33] Al Nipper, a former Red Sox pitcher, scouted Scott for Boston.[48]

Scott made a quick progression to the Double-A Portland Sea Dogs since spending the entire 2012 season with the Gulf Coast League Red Sox. After jumping directly from the GCL to the High-A Salem Red Sox to begin the 2013 season, Scott put together a solid campaign to put himself on the map, going 4–4 with a 2.79 ERA and two saves. In 2014 he moved up to Portland, where he posted solid numbers, going 8–2 with a 1.96 ERA and two saves, while recording a strikeout-to-walk ratio of 3.40 (51-to-15) in 59⅔ innings. During that season, he was selected to the Eastern League All-Star game and late in the year pitched for the AFL Surprise Saguaros.[47]

Scott appeared in 27 games (including two starts) between Portland and Triple-A Pawtucket Red Sox through July 10, 2015, compiling a 2–1 record with a 2.09 ERA while striking out 49 in 51⅔ innings. After that, Scott earned his second consecutive trip to the Eastern League All-Star team and was moved to Pawtucket for the third time in the season following the All-Star break.[47][49] Overall, Scott went 2–2 with a 4.42 ERA and one save in 75⅓ innings of work.[47]

Besides, Sturgeon batted .307 with six home runs, 19 RBI, 43 runs scored, 11 doubles and two triples in 50 total games with Wareham (regular season and playoffs combined), while going 2–0 with a 3.18 ERA and one save in eight relief appearances, including 11 strikeouts in 11⅓ innings.[51]

Sturgeon debuted professionally with the Short-Season A Lowell Spinners in June 2014, hitting for them a .276/.300/.414 slash line in seven games before being promoted to Low-A Greenville Drive on July 7. He hit .284 in only 48 games for the Drive, ending with a .283 average, 10 doubles, two home runs, 31 runs, and 30 RBI in the two stints. Besides, he showed his versatility by being able to play all three outfield positions well enough, as he saw most of his playing time at center field and right field.[51]

Sturgeon opened 2015 at High-A Salem Red Sox, earning a promotion to the Double-A Portland Sea Dogs in the midseason. On July 3, Sturgeon saw his first pitching appearance as a professional with three scoreless innings of relief for Portland, earning the win and scoring the winning run, to give the Sea Dogs a 16-inning walk-off victory after five hours and nine minutes of action. With his effort, Sturgeon became the 15th position player in the franchise's 22-year history to also pitch in a game, as well as the third to earn a win while doing so.[53] The steady oufielder hit a .245/.285/.333 line and collected a .974 Fld% in 104 games between Salem and Portland, completing four levels in less of two years.[51]
