It's time to vote for our annual SoxProspects Players of the Year Awards! Next up, breakout player of the year. Place your vote for the Red Sox minor league player who you feel had the best breakout season in 2015. A "breakout player" is one who becomes a significant prospect after previously being considered less than such, or also one who rises from non-prospectdom to vault himself into prospect status. Players in their first pro seasons are also not eligible to be breakout players. Players nominated for Comeback Player of the Year are also not eligible to be nominated as breakout players. Please do not vote based on who you think is the best prospect or who you think may perform better in the future, and please only consider minor league performance. This poll will close at midnight on Monday, September 28th.
