Look Out Above! Here Comes Prospect Rafael Devers

Rafael Devers
Most of the trade rumors that floated around the Red Sox last month included third-base prospect Rafael Devers. While his resume isn't as 'sexy' as #1 overall MLB prospect Yoan Moncada, he is very well-regarded by the cognoscenti of the game. Last night, Devers went 4-6 at High-A Salem—including a walk-off double. He's now hitting .283 with 11 HRs and 66 RBIs. And, he's already tallied 200 total bases (leading the team by far). He also has 29 doubles—second on the team. Keep a close eye on this guy! He may be coming to an old, cramped ballpark near you very soon—either Fenway or McCoy.
