Gulf Coast League Red Sox

Final Score: GCL Orioles 7, Red Sox 5

Notable Position Players:

Yoan Aybar (2-4)

Trent Kemp (0-4, 3 K)

Andrew Noviello (0-2, K)

  • Noviello, a high-school catcher whom the Red Sox drafted in the 25th round this season, makes his first professional start. A legitimate draft prospect, Noviello slipped that late in the draft because of a strong commitment to Maine, but as a local Massachusetts kid, couldn’t pass up the opportunity to sign with his hometown team. He’s a long way from becoming a major prospect, but even if he doesn’t, it’s only a 25th round pick and it makes sense to chase the upside.

Jagger Rusconi (0-4)

Yomar Valentin (0-3)
