Some good players are starting to show up in the Boston Red Sox system.

And the New York Yankees used to have this kind of talent.

From Alex Speier of the Boston Globe:

Right-handed pitcher Frank German has made nine straight appearances in Triple-A Worcester without giving up a run. In 11⅓ innings, he has struck out 17 batters and walked 7. Since he was moved up to Triple-A, he has pitched 26⅓ innings and struck out 33.7 percent of the batters he faced.

In the trade that sent reliever Adam Ottavino from the Bronx to Boston in 2021, the Yankees gave the Red Sox a prospect named German. Ottavino is now with the New York Mets, but the Red Sox kept this promising player.

In the 2018 MLB Draft, the Yankees picked German in the fourth round.

MLB Pipeline says that German is the No. 26 prospect for the Red Sox. Here’s his scouting report:

In college, German threw in the low 90s. When he joined the Yankees, he jumped to the mid-90s, and now he throws at 96-98 mph and can hit 99 mph when he comes out of the bullpen for one inning. He has also improved his other pitches. What used to be a slurve has become a low-80s slider with some depth. He has also worked on and improved a splitter from the mid-80s that he uses as a changeup against left-handed batters.
