Top Red Sox minor-league prospects
14. Bryce Brentz, RFTeam: Salem (High Class A)
Scouting report: A former Division I batting champ with Middle Tennessee State, Bryce Brentz is tearing his way through the Red Sox' lower levels. After hitting 11 homers with Greenville in 40 games this year, Brentz earned a promotion to Salem. Before being placed on the DL for the short term with a wrist injury, Brentz homered in both games with Salem. The 22-year-old struck out 76 times in 69 games with the Lowell Spinners last season. Defensively, he has a strong right throwing arm, but committed eight errors with Greenville this season.
