Arizona Fall League Red Sox Update: 10/7-10/11


The Arizona Fall League started play this week. Each Sunday, BSI will take a look at the week for the Red Sox prospects playing for the Surprise Saguaros.

For the most part, things have started off well for the Red Sox players. The team is 3-2, leading the Western Division of the six-team league. Generally, hitters play every other game. Pitchers will likely follow a similar schedule except Keith Couch, who will follow more of a starter’s schedule, taking the hill every fifth or sixth day.

Let’s take a look at the results from this week:


Rusney Castillo has hit in all three games he has played in, going 5-for-15 with a double and two walks. Castillo did make an error patrolling center field, however.

Sean Coyle has only seen action in two games of the five played by the Saguaros. Coyle pounded a triple in going 3-for-7 and driving in two runs, while starting at second base.

Deven Marrero has singled twice in six at-bats, walking three times as well. Marrero has been manning shortstop thus far.


Keith Couch won his first start, allowing two runs on four hits with no walks and one strikeout in four innings.

Aaron Kurcz has yet to surrender a hit in his two scoreless appearances over two innings. Kurcz has allowed one walk while striking out three.

Madison Younginer has allowed a run on two hits in two innings. Younginer has struggled with his control, walking three in two innings.

Robby Scott has twirled two scoreless innings allowing two hits and a walk and striking out three.

Overall, with the exception of Younginer, all the Red Sox have all started out strong. It is early, so there is plenty of time for him to turn it around. It will be a couple weeks before we see how these guys are going to fare against the other promising prospects of the game.
