Sox Prospect Devers Stellar In AAA Debut

Boston Red Sox Prospect Rafael Devers Has Stellar Night In PawSox Debut

Top Boston Red Sox prospect Rafael Devers made his Triple-A debut on Saturday night with the Pawtucket Red Sox. With all eyes on the third basemen, he was able to have a stellar night for Pawtucket.

Devers in his first AAA game went 4-for-4 with a double and a homer and helping the PawSox to a 7-4 win over the Syracuse Chiefs.

In his first two at-bats, he had two singles. The first one being a single through the hole on the left side of the infield. And the second a leadoff single out into right field. His first extra base hit of the night came in the sixth inning where he hit a ball on the hop to the right-field wall for a double.

In his fourth at-bat, Devers faced MLB veteran Neal Cotts with a left-on-lefty matchup. Devers not fazed, smoked a two-run home run into the light tower out in right-field.

His offense hasn’t been a  problem for Devers this season. His issue has been his defense.

But on Saturday night he flashed the leather. In the bottom of the eighth inning, Devers made a sweet barehanded play on a slow roller chucking it over to first base for an out.

Devers was called up to Pawtucket on Friday from Double-A Portland. To make room for Devers, the Boston Red Sox DFA’d Pablo Sandoval from Pawtucket’s roster along with cutting Jhonny Peralta.

Collectively this season Devers is batting .309 with 19 home-runs and 58 RBIs in 291 at-bats.

The PawSox conclude their four-game series in Syracuse on Sunday at 1:05 p.m. PawSox right-hander Marcus Walden on the mound going against Chiefs righty Jaron Long. Red Sox fans looking to watch Devers play in Pawtucket will have the chance to see him on Monday as Pawtucket is returning home to McCoy with an extended homestand.
