SoxProspects.com Podcast
The most comprehensive Red Sox minor league discussion on the web.

We are less than a week away from the start of the 2021 Major League Baseball season and the guys want to get going already. Chris and Ian have the latest analysis of the big league lineup. They start with the rotation, and what Tanner Houck and Connor Seabold need to do in Worcester. For hitters, the guys talk through what to do with Michael Chavis, Bobby Dalbec and Jarren Duran, as well as the surprising spring of Jonathan Arauz. They also discuss the various rule changes that will be tried out in the minors this year. And as always, we get to the mailbag and your terrific questions.Thanks for writing in and make sure to send your questions to podcast@soxprospects.com

Chris and Ian have a metric ton of emails to go through. We put out a call for questions and you all stepped it up. Awesome work. Before getting after the emails, the guys go over details from camp. In particular they break down the position players and pitchers who have shown something in camp. They go into details on how the alternate site will return due to the delay of the start of the AAA season. The guys welcome Zach Bryant to the club, who is the player who was named later for Josh Osich. And then Chris and Ian get to the mailbag and your terrific questions.
