    Mayo has Roniel Raudes ranked as the 5th best starting pitching prospect in the Red Sox system, behind Kopech, Groome, Johnson, and Lakins. But in terms of ceiling, you could make the case that Raudes is the third best starting pitching prospect in the Red Sox system, behind only Kopech and Groome.

    According to Mayo:
    Raudes has done a nice job in Greenville this year, averaging almost a strikeout per inning while keeping the walks down. BB/K ratios: 1.69/8.63. He has impressive command/control for someone so young, probably the best and most promising aspect of his game.

    He got overshadowed by other prospects we won't mention right now, but holding your own at Greenville at 18 is fairly impressive. I just checked and back in April, Raudes was the second youngest player in the SAL. He's no stud, but he doesn't deserve to be ignored.

    I've always preferred the CF angle over the behind-the-plate angle.



    What is Raudes doing at 0:28, 2:02, and 2:25?

    Espinoza?

    Were you talking about Espinoza?

    Anderson Espinoza?

    The guy they traded for Drew Pomeranz?

    That guy?

    He is no stud right now, but he is so young and thus could add more velocity. If his velocity increases, along with the effectiveness of his secondary stuff, he will be a stud. His command/control is already very impressive. Of course, there is no guarantee that such improvements will occur.
