Couple things I'd like to add:

Yermin Mercedes was a rule-5 in the Triple-A phase. Pretty sure he has to stay in Charlotte or be sent back to the Orioles.

I can't see Michalczewski or Adams making the jump to Charlotte. They had less than impressive years and still have things to work on. Sox would be doing them a disservice if they promoted them to begin the year, IMO.

I donít think the minor league portion of the Rule 5 draft works like that. I believe the Sox can start Mercedes at whatever level they like.

I really think Curbelo opens the season with Kannapolis.

Seconded


That's a tough call. I like Curbelo a lot as a prospect, certainly more than say Laz Rivera or Tate Blackman. But decisions in a rebuild like this, and the way Getz seems to do things, are about the right developmental spot and not rushing. Curbelo just turned 20 and has a grand total of 48 pro games, almost all of it in the AZL. He's a prep pick. I really think they will slow-move him through Ext ST, Great Falls, then Kanny later in the year maybe. Then accelerate more in 2019 from there if it goes well.

I would imagine Ryan Cordell would need to really impress to the break camp with the team. Since he missed a big chunk of last year I figure he'll need to show at least 100 quality PAs to justify getting the a roster spot.

With the roster flexibility Leury, Saladino, Sanchez, Delmonico & Davidson provide I wonder if the Sox would consider carrying 8 bullpen arms. In that case I would assume Cordell is the most likely to start in Charlotte.


Anyone have any hope Engel will hit enough to justify a big league job?


Consider? This was the case all of last season.

I actually meant to say 9 bullpen arms. With the flexibility Leury, Saladino & Sanchez provide I would consider putting a hard cap of 6 innings per start on the young arms and just trot out a new bullpen arm every inning.
