    In the off-season, the Red Sox must decide if they want to protect Ysla by placing him on the 40 man roster. I think they will protect him--he is a left handed relief pitcher with really good stuff (93-96 MPH fastball, can hit 98, to go along with a slider and changeup) and the potential to develop into a late inning reliever (or, at the very least, a left-handed specialist). He needs to work on his command/control. While he is averaging more than a strikeout per inning in Portland, he is walking too many batters (4.23 per nine).

    In the recent SoxProspects podcast, Ysla was speculated as an "under-the-radar" candidate to get called up in September as a LOOGY or even one-inning option out of the bullpen.
