A perfect fit between prospect and team, Kyle Teel was scooped up by the Red Sox with the 14th overall pick in last year's draft, and proceeded to dominate three levels of the minors over a small sample. Not only will Teel have a favorable home park to hit in, but he is essentially unchallenged as Boston's long-term starting catcher. The Virginia product hit .429 with one home run and zero strikeouts in three Florida Complex League games. He then hit .377 with as many walks as strikeouts (11) in 14 games at High-A and .323 with one home run and two doubles in nine games at Double-A. All told, it was a .363/.483/.495 slash line with two home runs and three steals in 26 games. He had a linedrive rate over 32 percent and an opposite-field rate over 39 percent at High-A and Double-A. Based on his small pro sample and his .407 average and .475 OBP as a junior, the lefty-hitting Teel has a chance to be near the top among all catchers in batting average and on-base percentage during his prime years. Impressive runs and RBI totals should follow, but he may be capped at around 15-20 home runs, even with steady playing time. He could debut in late 2024 or early 2025.

  • Red Sox's Kyle Teel: Using whole field at Double-A

    Teel has a .262/.367/.408 slash line with three home runs, one steal and a 27.5 percent strikeout rate in 27 games for Double-A Portland. He has been 26 percent better than the average Eastern League hitter, and it's worth noting that the park factors in Portland and the Eastern League in general favor pitchers over hitters. Teel's 21.7 percent hard-hit rate is subpar, and he's hitting more balls to the opposite field (40 percent) than to the pull side (38.6 percent), so Teel remains a hit-over-power prospect.
