A lot has happened with Boston Red Sox prospects in the past week. Nothing more deserving than the Jarren Duran promotion to Double-A though.
Michael Chavis is once again not the only prospect-type player in the Majors for the Boston Red Sox. In fact, things are getting kind of crowded on that front for them.
Chavis is slashing .264/.358/.500 with two doubles and a triple, as well as 10 home runs. He has 28 RBI and 22 runs scored and he’s constantly improving in the field. The 23-year-old is every bit the number-one team prospect they expected.
Speaking of prospects, Chavis is no longer technically a prospect. Doesn’t mean he won’t be talked about on here this year though.
Due to injuries, Sam Travis is back up with the Red Sox too. He probably won’t get a ton of playing time, but might get enough to try and make his case. Currently, he’s 2-for-9 with Boston this year.
On the pitching side, two top-30 prospects in the organization are up in the Majors.
Josh Taylor has made two appearances, giving up one run in two innings. He’s struck out two in that time. If Taylor can give the Red Sox some more solid innings, he could find a long-term spot with the team. Boston is in need of left-handed relievers (and some bullpen help in general). He was great in Triple-A this year, so he might get an extended look.
Meanwhile, Mike Shawaryn is with the team but has yet to make his debut. That will likely come soon as a spot start.
