2016

Espinoza, 18, was an international free agent signed in 2014 and made his organizational debut in 2015. The preternatural right-hander with a slight frame used his three-pitch mix (fastball, curveball, changeup) and mid-90s gas to blow away the competition in the Dominican Summer League and then the Gulf Coast League. He allowed five runs, 37 hits, and 12 walks while striking out 61 batters in 55 innings. The Red Sox think so highly of him, they gave Espinoza one start for Low-A Greenville. That start against the most advanced hitters he’s faced was predictably less successful, but Espinoza’s initial dominance has the organization thinking about an aggressive development path for him. He pitched in the Fall Instructional League, facing hitters several years older, and did not look out of place. His delivery is clean and repeatable and he keeps his fastball down in the zone. Espinoza will be a trendy pick in dynasty leagues, and while there is still significant lead time, he looks like he could be worth the wait.
