On Thursday, Major League Baseball released its updated top 100 prospect list ahead of the 2023 season. It was just further proof of how far the Boston Red Sox have come in this department.

At the end of the 2022 season, the Red Sox had three players on the roster. It has improved to four.

Shortstop Marcelo Mayer saw his count drop from seven to nine. Still, having a top-10 prospect in all of baseball is good enough to get anyone excited. Mayer is an all-around talent with no major holes in his game. However, it is his bat that makes the left-handed batsman so intriguing. He finished 2022 with a strong final month in High-A and could be ready to move up in 2023.

Triston Casas was next on the list, moving from 25th to 23rd. However, Casas won’t be on the roster for long. He finished 2022 on the big league roster, and it’s clear that he’s Boston’s plan at first base moving forward. He’s a powerful left-handed bat with great discipline and solid defense at first, so it’s clear why the Red Sox are excited about him.
