In case you weren't aware, the Sox' top prospect Eloy Jimenez has been just killing Dominican Winter League pitching. Yes it's somewhere around AA-level competition, but it's still quite encouraging. Read up on just how big his performance has been so far, from our newest writer at FutureSox, Ken Sawilchik (Buzonthesox on SoxTalk).

Enjoy, and welcome our new talent!

What an unbelievable run this kid is on. The rebuild gets a whole lot easier if we get a superstar hitter in the middle of the line up.

I know, if Yoan can just make a bit more contact then that does everything. He's already hammering the ball when he hits it.

Oh wait you meant the other possible superstar hitter.

Yeah, but Luis Robert looks like he'll be a few years away. But it will be nice to have a CF with good power and hitting ability.

Steamer came out and Eloy projects to a 262/316/452 line with a wRC+ of 102. Eloy turns 21 in a couple weeks. That's insane.

This is a lot more fun than the "If Danks and Latos are top flight starters" game.

Yea, which is insane. For comparison, (and he's a 2B with a decent maybe very good glove so it's not a great one) they think the 22 year old Moncada is going to put up a wRC+ of 98. So they basically think that Eloy is already a better hitter even though he's a year younger.

If anybody has the Steamer database link let me know. I'd like to see how Eloy projects against every 21 year old in MILB. I'd have to think he's at the top of the pile projection wise.

Yea I think the Sox have basically told him to rest up and get ready for late February in AZ. He said in a spanish language interview the other week that he didn't think the Sox were going to let him play too much longer down there.

Search engine optimization. It gets them more clicks including that in the title.

Out of the four big trades Sox made (Red Sox, Nats, Cubs, Yanks), the Cub trade looks the best right now.

Only because Kopech and Moncada aren't playing right now.
