Manuel Margot [man-well'/mar-goe'] is a Dominican center fielder who plays in the Boston Red Sox minor league system. Listed at 5' 11, 170 lb., he bats and throws right-handed.[52]

Margot was signed by the Red Sox as an international free agent in July 2011, receiving a reported bonus of $800,000. According to scouting report, he has plus-plus speed that he uses well on the bases, above average range and solid outfield defense, as well as the ability to hit the ball hard to all fields.[53] At age 17, he started his professional career with Rookie Level Dominican Summer League Red Sox in their 2012 season.

In his season debut, Margot earned Red Sox Minor League Latin Program Player of the Year honors, after batting a .285/.382/.423 slash line with 38 stolen bases in just 68 games, gaining a spot on the DSL All-Star team. Regarded as a patient hitter, he walked more than he struck out in the DSL (36-to-25 in 260 at-bats).[53]

Margot jumped up two levels to the Lowell Spinners in 2013, and held his own as the youngest regular in the Short-Season A New York–Penn_League.[54]

Following his successful debut, he did manage to get a hit in 12 out of his first 15 games with Lowell, collecting a .254/.343/.307 line through July 24, when a hamstring injury laid him up. After a disabled list stint, he returned on August 16 showing glimpses of his potential with a .447/.475/.658 line over his first eight games back. He finished the year with a .270 average and 18 stolen bases in only 49 games.[53]

Barring an unforeseen setback, Margot had his first taste of full-season ball with Low A Greenville Drive of the South Atlantic League in 2014. In his first 99 games at Greenville, he posted a .282/.362/.418 line with 10 home runs and 45 runs batted in, while leading the Drive with 105 hits and 61 runs scored, and the Red Sox organization with 39 stolen bases.[53] As a result, he was promoted to High A Salem Red Sox on August 15.[55]

Margot posted the best numbers in the entire system in August 2014, showing no signs of an adjustment period after a mid-month promotion. He hit .340/.356/.560 in just 18 games, combining for a .293/.356/.462 line with 12 homers and 59 RBI in 115 contests for Greenville and Salem. Besides, he led the Sox minors system with 42 stolen bases. It was just the latest part in what has been a very solid season in the organization despite his youth. As such, he climbed from No. 11 to No. 6 in the MLB.com Top 20 Boston Red Sox Prospects list.[54]

A speedy outfielder and line-drive hitter, Mars posted a strong season with the Chipola Indians, while collecting a slash line of .380/.460/.584 with four home runs, 35 runs batted in and 25 stolen bases in 48 games. He also showed advanced recognition skills as a disciplined hitter, based on his 1.45 walk-to-strikeout ratio (29-to-20) in 166 plate appearances.[57]

Mercedes, who pitched four innings of shutout ball in one game for the Dominican Summer League Red Sox in 2012, was headed for a short-season assignment with the Lowell Spinners in 2013. He was strong as a starter at the beginning of the season, allowing two earned runs in 15⅓ innings over three starts, but was demoted to the bullpen for the remainder, averaging nearly five innings per relief appearance. As a reliever, he struck out more than a better per inning and totaled almost five strikeout for every base on balls. He finished his season on a high note, pitching three innings of one-hit, four-strikeout ball to register his first professional save on August 31.[58]

Mercedes opened 2014 with Class A Salem Red Sox, even though he spent some time on the disabled list early in the season. He then was placed in Lowell on a rehab assignment before returning to Salem.[58] Mercedes finished the season with a subpar record of 5-10 and a 4.76 ERA in 22 appearances, 15 as a starter. He currently ranks 18th in the MLB.com Top 20 Boston Red Sox Prospects list.[37]

Perkins was a two-sport athlete, having played football and baseball at La Porte High School in La Porte in Harris County near Houston.

Perkins batted .420 with 8 home runs his Freshman year at La Porte. At the age of 15, he was named First Team All-district, First Team All-greater Houston and the All Greater Houston Newcomer of the Year. He also played junior varsity football as a Freshman.

Perkins batted .412 with 7 home runs as a Sophomore and was recognized by being named to the First Team All-district and First Team All-greater Houston teams while also leading La Porte in rushing by gaining 450 yards with 3 touchdowns before having his season cut short with a broken foot. He only played in 6 games as a Sophomore, and was a starter in each of them.

Perkins batted .400 with 6 home runs as a Junior. In addition to being named First Team All-district and First Team All-greater Houston, Perkins was selected to play in the Texas All Juniors High School game and named First Team All-region. He also had the best rushing season of his career, gaining 1,876 yards and scoring 28 touchdowns. Aside from being named All-district, Perkins was named to the All Greater Houston Touchdown Club.

Heading into his Senior season, Perkins was named to Rawlings Pre-season All-American team. He followed that up by batting .421 with 5 home runs,[59] and was selected for the Rawlings All-American team and First Team All-State. He decided to skip football his Senior year and focus on baseball. But, after two games, he returned to football and was backup to Junior Anthony Webb. Despite playing in fewer games and getting less playing times, Perkins rushed for 1,726 yards and 27 touchdowns, earning him Co-offensive Player of the Year, First Team All-State and All Greater Houston honors.

Upon graduation from La Porte High School, Perkins received scholarship offers for both football and baseball. He committed to Texas A&M with the intent of playing both sports for the Aggies, but kept his options for professional baseball open until after its draft.

Perkins was selected in the 6th round (203 overall) of the 2010 MLB Draft by the Boston Red Sox. His draft status fell as most MLB teams knew he would be difficult to sign. But on August 8, 2010, Perkins elected to forgo college and sign with the Red Sox.[60]

Perkins first professional season was in 2011 with the Gulf Coast League Red Sox. He played left field and batted .258 with 3 home runs and 19 RBIs.[61]
