With Spring Training rolling around the corner, fans will have an opportunity to get a glimpse at some new, young talent; a look at some guys who could potentially make an impact on the Boston Red Sox this year. Of course, there will be the same young players who could impact the team, but there are even younger, even newer players to keep an eye out for.

In terms of pitching, the Red Sox top three pitching prospects are all set to start off the 2015 season as members of the Paw Sox rotation. Henry Owens, Brian Johnson and Eduardo Rodriguez are all left-handed starting pitchers who were dominant in their time with the Red Sox organization last year.

To the surprise of many, Henry Owens is not a power pitcher despite standing tall at 6ft7. He is more of a finesse guy and the power pitchers of the bunch being Eduardo Rodriguez and Brian Johnson who occasionally top out at 97 MPH and 95 MPH respectively. Right now, Owens and Rodriguez are on the 40-man roster but if Johnson pitches up to his ability, there is no reason why he should not get the call.
Although no new relievers are on the 40-man roster right now, things could soon change. Slated to start off the 2015 season in Pawtucket are two relievers who could end up helping the big league club if they make their MLB debuts this season— 2011 fourth round draft pick Noe Ramirez and Cuban defector Dalier Hinojosa.

Ramirez spent most of his year last year in AA Portland where he posted a 2.14 ERA in 42 outings totaling 67.1 innings. Hinojosa on the other hand, was a Paw Sox reliever the entire season and despite struggling early, he turned his year around by posting a 1.57 ERA in his final 23 innings of work.
Working in their favor is the fact that they can be stretched out and give a team multiple innings in relief. Working against them is that neither of them are on the 40-man roster— yet.
