2015 Red Sox top prospect voting #19: Stankiewicz and the second-round swingmen

Teddy Stankiewicz is following in the footsteps of fellow second-rounders Brandon Workman and Justin Masterson. Which road will he follow? For the Red Sox, the second round has been awfully productive over the last 12 years. The first round is responsible for a good portion of our list--particularly the higher ranks--but the second round has produced Brandon Workman, Justin Masterson, and two other lesser-known players who real devoted fans may have heard of in Dustin Pedroia and Jon Lester. I feel safe in saying that Teddy Stankiewicz probably fits in more with the first couple names on...

Masterson thought he'd never leave Sox

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- The long and winding road has taken Justin Masterson back to Boston. He thought he’d never leave. Masterson was selected in the second round of the 2006 draft, was named to Baseball America’s short-season All-Star team and ultimately was invited to spring training before the 2008 season, making his major-league debut against the Angels as an emergency fill-in starter. Later in the year, he pitched a scoreless ninth inning and picked up the victory in Game 5 of the American League Championship Series.

FORT MYERS — Justin Masterson stood atop a mound the other day and went ahead with his fourth pre-spring training bullpen session, four more than he usually throws by this point in the year.This is what happens when you bet on yourself — and lose.Last spring, the Cleveland Indians offered Masterson a three-year extension reportedly worth $45 million. The right-hander, fresh off an All-Star season in 2013, turned it down, believing he could do better if he played out the year and became a free agent at age 29.

Justin Masterson throws, finds out he isn't irreversibly broken

Masterson's 2014 was a mess thanks to a spring training injury that never went away. This time around, he's feeling good. Justin Masterson was a disaster in 2014, and it all began a year ago during his first bullpen sessions of the spring. He wasn't healthy, but only in the way you discover when your job is throwing baseballs at high speeds for a living and you've started to do so again. Luckily, when he attempted the same exercises and bullpen sessions that were an ominous sign for 2014, he was greeted with nothing: no pain, and no worries. That's not the end of things, but it's certainly...
