Red Sox Minor Leagues

There was a time when the Red Sox farm system was one of the worst in baseball and rarely produced impact players. Those days are long gone. Since Theo Epstein arrived, the Red Sox have placed a priority on developing their own players, and the Red Sox have maintained their status on one of the game’s best minor league systems.

The 2011 roster features homegrown players like Jon Lester, Clay Buchholz, Jonathan Papelbon, Daniel Bard, Dustin Pedroia, Kevin Youkilis, Jacoby Ellsbury and Jed Lowrie. Names like Ryan Kalish, Jose Iglesias, Felix Doubront and Josh Reddick will become more familiar in the near future.
