I don't follow the kids much, but I remember being favorably impressed with Dalbec and Houck this past season on the mlb team. Any chance of their moving up this coming season?

Dalbec likely won't move anywhere except off the list. Houck, well, it depends.

He still hasn't been cleared to play baseball, until there's an answer to that question it's tough to put him on a top ten list. If he has another year of service before he's allowed to play, is he a potential 2/3 starter or an end of the rotation guy?

Alex Speier gives a brief synopsis of the BA top 10 (which he claims authorship of). The offensive potential of Casas at 1B is just one reason that a move by Devers from 3B to 1B seems highly unlikely.
"Baseball America’s list of the top 10 Red Sox prospects (which I’ve been in charge of assembling for the last eight years) features few new names from a year ago. Nonetheless, the advances made by numerous players at the team’s alternate training site point to a system with a broader and more advanced array of near-big-league-ready talent than has been the case for some time."

Will Casas play a majority of games this year in the majors or more in the minors? Is he ready to move up? Any Insight?
Everything I have read or heard predicts at least a full year in the minors. However if he explodes at Aa\AAA then maybe he gets a cup of coffee in 2021. On the Soxprospects podcast Speier mentioned mid-22, as the most likely time for his MLB debut.
