Top prospects for the Boston Red Sox with Portland

Organizational rankings are from the 2015 Baseball America Prospect Handbook

Carlos Asuaje, 23, LHH 2B/3B/OF
Ranked #25, BA Grade: 45, Medium risk

            At 5’9”, Asuaje is not going to break out with more homerun power anytime soon, so he’ll have to continue to show gap power and an ability to hit for a high average. Defensively, he’s serviceable at 3B, but better suited for 2B or LF according to BA, which seems like an unusual mix. Without any standout tools, he looks like more of a future utility guy at the highest level, but he’d be valuable in that role if he can keep hitting like he did in 2014.
            He’s batting .248/350/386, with 14 2B, 3 3B, 3 HR, and 28 K: 28 BB in 210 AB.

Justin Haley, 23, RH SP
Ranked #28, BA Grade: 45, High risk

            Haley got a late season promotion to Portland last year and dominated the EL over his 6 starts (1.19 ERA/3.73 FIP), but has not had nearly as much success to start 2015. His control, which had been an issue in 2012-13, is worse than ever, with his BB-rate up to 16.3%. Haley’s best pitch is probably his fastball that sits in the lower 90’s, touching 94. He surprised people with his performance in 2014, which earned him a spot in the BA top-30 with ‘potential number 5’ upside, but he’ll drop right back off the list if he doesn’t turn it around soon.
            Haley hasn’t lasted more than 5 IP in any of his previous 4 starts and is 0-1 against Binghamton this year. Overall, he’s 1-8 with a 5.98 ERA over 49.2 IP, with 63 hits allowed, and a 41 K: 28 BB ratio.

Recent Injuries/Transactions

            Rainy Lara has been promoted to Las Vegas. Brandon Nimmo was activated and has played 2 games for St. Lucie (0-8, 2 R, 2 BB, 2 K), so he might be back soon. Jairo Perez was placed on the DL Saturday, likely so the B-Mets could activate LH RP (and LI native) John Mincone, who got the win in his AA debut. Chase Huchingson was promoted to Las Vegas, which opened the spot/need for Mincone.
