The Boston Red Sox have a very talented group of prospects. Who should be called up to the league next?
The Boston Red Sox didn’t have the start to the season many fans expected, but their 2022 season has only just begun. With five games under .500, one has to wonder if the time has come for some of the team’s gifted talent to make their major league debuts?
Boston has a very talented group of players on the farm, and some have already reached Triple A level. Could it be time to add some of these young talents to the major league roster? Let’s look at three Red Sox prospects who should be on the shortlist.
3. Red Sox prospect Josh Winckowski should be called up next.
Josh Winckowski should be one of the next Red Sox contenders to make his major league debut. The 23-year-old was traded twice in the first month of the 2021 season, eventually ending up in Boston when the Red Sox shipped Andrew Benintendi to Kansas City.
Winckowski has started this season well at Triple-A Worcester. The right-hander has started three games and owns a modest 3.55 ERA. The 23-year-old hasn’t scored as many goals as one would like to see, but that has never been Winckowski’s best trait.
The question that comes up a lot with Josh Winckowski is whether or not he’s a reliever or a starter. If he can’t refine that third offer, there’s likely a spot reserved for him in the Red Sox bullpen.
However, if Winckowski can develop this splitter/switch further, there’s a chance he could end up in the Red Sox’s starting rotation. Nick Pivetta looked terrible in the early days and may not last long as a member of Boston’s starting rotation.
