Scouts Are Raving About Red Sox Prospect Miguel Bleis

The Red Sox are embarrassing right now but there is one thing Chaim Bloom is nailing during his tenure as Boston’s President of Baseball operations. This Sox farm system is LOADED. The talent that was just on display at the Florida Gulf Coast league might be the best group of young talent the Sox have ever had. If you get familiar with any name deep in the farm, it should be outfielder Miguel Bleis.

Alex Speier of the Boston Globe did a column on all of the young talent on display in Florida. The scouts are BUZZING over the future outlook of Miguel Bleis.

“Miguel Bleis (CF, 18 years old): Arguably the organization’s first true five-tool talent since Mookie Betts, Bleis hit .301/.353/.542 with 5 homers, 23 extra-base hits, and 18 steals in 40 games before being shut down with lower-back tightness.

“if we called on him,” suggested one NL scout, they’d laugh and hang up immediately.”

“It’s sort of a righthanded version of Devers. It’s loud. It’s the same sound. He can mis-hit balls and they go out,” said Kotchman. “Does he have holes? Yes. But there’s no doubting the sound that ball makes with the bat and there’s no doubting him as a runner and how he runs, because it’s that easy.”

If anyone has hit the ball consistently harder than himn in the FCL this year, I’d be surprised,” added Red Sox farm director Brian Abraham. “You don’t talk about five-tool players too often, but he is one of them.”

Okay, then! I’m not sure there is a more intriguing prospect in the system than Bleis. Everything you read on this kid sparks excitement. You start making comps to Mookie Betts, how can you not get a little excited?

It’s another chess piece in a loaded Sox farm system. Mikey Romero, Roman Anthony, and Brooks Bannon appear to be early hits from the 2022 MLB Draft class. Add that to number four overall pick last year Marcelo Mayer as well as first rounder Nick Yorke and we’re really talking about something brewing here.

The answer to this question one year later appears to be a resounding YES.

As I said in the long Chaim Bloom video I did this month, the Sox aren’t failing everywhere. Some of the young talent coming through the system is incredibly encouraging. It remains to be seen if Boston will become more aggressive supplementing their big league club. At some point, you can’t protect everyone.
