Deven Marerro Shines In Pawtucket Debut

He is likely to be the Red Sox "shortstop of the future". If Xander Bogaerts can get comfortable and produce at third, Deven Marrero is probably the best choice to be at his left for many years. Marrero has almost 'Jose Iglesias-like' fielding skills and he can hit. He demonstrated his offensive prowess in his debut last night for the AAA PawSox—going 2-4 with a run scored. For the AA Portland SeaDogs, Marreo had been hitting .291, with a .371 OBP—including 5 HRs and 39 RBIs. It's almost certain that Marrero will get a September "look-see"—and may even be in Fenway sooner than that. If you catch our drift.
