Jarren Duran has a 13-game hitting streak at the moment. It’s also impossible to find many weaknesses in his stat line. The 21-year-old is hitting .348 with five doubles and two home runs, as well as 10 triples. He’s also driven in 20 runs and scored 28 more while stealing 12 bases. All this has happened in 37 games.
Kole Cottam is hitting just .242 in 120 at-bats. The catcher leads the team with three home runs and 24 RBI. Cottam was the Red Sox fourth-round pick in this year’s draft and is already flashing plenty of potential at the plate.
Tyler Esplin also holds a low average at .211. He’s tied with Cottam for the team lead in homers with three though. The 19-year-old also has 15 RBI and three steals in three attempts.
Devlin Granberg is hitting .301 with a team-leading 10 doubles. The outfielder is also second on the team in runs scored with 25 while driving in 13. He’s coming off a fantastic game that saw him collect four hits in a game for the first time in his MiLB career.
Tyler Dearden has struggled in recent days but still holds a .282/.351/.410 slash line. The outfielder also has 10 extra-base hits and 15 RBI on the year. Meanwhile, he’s third on the team with 20 runs scored. The 20-year-old is in his first year of Short-A baseball but hasn’t looked overmatched to this point.
On July 28, Eduard Bazardo walked his first batter since June 20. He didn’t let that ruin his day though, as the 22-year-old turned out another strong performance. In 44 innings pitched, Bazardo has 51 strikeouts compared to five walks. The right-hander has a 2.25 ERA and 0.80 WHIP on the year, while opponents are hitting just .184 against him.
