Final Score: Asheville Tourists 6, Drive 3

Notable Position Players:

Michael Chavis (1-4, BB, K)

Rafael Devers (0-5, K)

Nick Longhi (2-3, BB)

  • The Red Sox selected the promising high school bat of Longhi in the 30th round of the 2013 draft and, by virtue of being a lifelong Red Sox fan (born in Springfield, MA), he passed up college to sign with the Red Sox. He has hit well in the lower levels of the minors, despite a promising season being cut short by injuries last year, and is slashing .279/.341/.384 right now. He has a good feel for hitting for somebody so young (he’ll turn 20 in August) and could become a legitimate prospect in time.

Yoan Moncada (0-2, 2 BB, 2 K)
