The Red Sox best Latin American pitching prospect only two years ago, righthander Stolmy Pimentel is only 22 this year, but some scouts are already thinking about pulling the plug on his development. His 94mph fastball has good late life, and he uses it well, balanced against a curve, change and developing sinker that could all be serious pitches in another couple of years, but the phenom's performance in recent years has been disappointing. If he returns, it'll be as a Pittsburgh Pirates, as the Bucs picked him up in the Joel Hanrahan trade of the 2012 winter. As expected, he needed to be broken down and built up again from scratch, and now he's just about ready for some MLB action.

Stolmy Pimentel may be headed to the Pirates as part of the Red Sox roster-shifting needs. The team is overstocked on the 40-man roster after the signing of shortstop Stephen Drew last week.
