Low-A Greenville Drive

Final Score: Drive 14, Asheville Tourists 8

Notable Position Players:

Michael Chavis (0-5, 2 K)

Rafael Devers (1-4, SB, K)

  • Devers has gotten a lot of love on midseason prospect lists, most recently ranking as the 8th best prospect in baseball (even ahead of Moncada) on Keith Law’s midseason top 50. On the surface, it might be difficult to see why as his .298/.327/.439 slash line is good but nothing special. However, Devers is still just 18 years old and is yet to face a pitcher younger than him, which is what makes his decent performance so impressive, even if it’s only coming in Low-A.

Javier Guerra (2-3, 2 BB)

  • The entire Drive lineup has been extremely hot lately but nobody more so than Guerra. The 19-year old shortstop has brought his season line up to .309/.363/.520 with a torrid July that has seen him hit .464/.500/.732 with 4 home runs. Guerra is joining the ranks of elite Red Sox prospects and it’s not really hard to see why.

Nick Longhi (1-4, 2 K)

Yoan Moncada (1-4, 2 SB, CS, BB, K)
