Bryce Brentz named to AFL Top Prospects Team

Bryce Brentz, a 23-year-old first round pick out of Middle Tennessee State in 2010, was named to the Arizona Fall League Top Prospects team.

For the Surprise Saguaros, Brentz hit .297 with two home runs, 11 RBI and a .804 OPS. During the 2012 regular season, the right-handed slugger batted .296 with 17 home runs, 76 RBI and a .833 OPS at Double-A Portland.

Brentz, who has a strong throwing arm and projects as a right fielder in the majors, was named Boston’s Co-Minor League Offensive Player of the Year in 2011 with Ryan Lavarnway when he belted 30 home runs between advanced Single-A Salem (Va.) and Portland.

If he is not included in a trade package, Brentz could battle for an outfield spot with Boston as early as 2014, and he could see his Major League debut in 2013. He is slated to open the 2013 campaign at Triple-A Pawtucket.

  1. If the Lester for Myers swap comes to fruition, Brentz could be heading to KC and Odorizzi to Boston.

    BTW: Any article in the works about that rumor?

  2. Jeff Louderback says:

    Yep, working on finding out more about the rumor. Could be part of a three-way trade with KC and Cleveland.

  3. Wonder who would be going to and coming from the Indians.

  4. Never mind. I just read the other article. I like Chris Perez.

  5. Heard Sox and TB rejected any deal until a little more sugar is added by KC.
