Top Prospect Alert

Steve Lomasney -- By Robert Sherry

This 22-year-old catching prospect went from Class-A Sarasota (.270, 8 HR, 28 RBI, 35 R, 10 2B, 26 BB, 57 SO, and 5 SB in 189 AB) to the majors last season (0-for-2 with 2 SO), with a stop at Double-A Trenton in between (.245 AVG, 12 HR, 31 RBI, 6 2B, 24 R, 31 BB, 44 SO and 7 SB in 151 AB). He also made a strong impression while playing in the Arizona Fall League (.284 AVG, 6 HR and 21 RBI).

At 6-foot and 195 pounds, this former fifth round pick in 1995 established himself as the potential catcher of the future for the Red Sox. In high school, he was a star football and baseball player (just like another top Sox prospect, Dernell Stenson). His defense has always been very good, but now his bat, which had been a weakness in his game in the past, has started to come around. In a few more years, you could be looking at an everyday major league catcher capable of hitting 25+ home runs and one of the best behind the plate on the defensive side in either the American or National League. Right now, if you wanted to use him, he is good enough behind the plate to play everyday in the majors and would do a fine job with handling everything. He is opening this season back with Trenton, so give him another season-and-a-half or so to continue to improve his hitting before he challenges current Sox catcher Jason Varitek for the starting job in Boston.
