Warning: players who appear in our live prospects listing, but are ranked near the very bottom of the list, may only appear in this position because their records have only become visible in the past few days and are still awaiting update. They may also only appear because they were once ranked higher and still technically qualify. As a side-effect of our automated processes, the end of the publicly-visible list also collects longshots, underdocumented signees, recently-retired players, foreign players unlikely to enter MLB, near-busts and other extreme dark-horse candidates. It does not mean that there are not 'better' prospects, only that better prospects in our system lack enough accurate data and/or scouting inputs to become visible at this time. Always read the detailed information and consult other sources before drawing conclusions about prospect viability, and never, ever, ever treat a 'ranking' alone as if it's meaningful.

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. He may need to be broken down and built up again from scratch to be a factor in MLB.

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.
