Red Sox Prospect Watch: Triston Casas steals the show
Red Sox Triple-A (Worcester)
Connor Seabold twirled another gem this week. The right-handed pitcher threw six shutout innings, giving up just one hit and three walks – while striking out four. This drops Seabold down to a 3.67 ERA, 1.06 WHIP, and .201 BAA in Triple-A. He has struck out 44 batters in 41 2/3 innings pitched, compared to 13 walks. Seabold is definitely a candidate to get a promotion soon, especially with the Red Sox COVID issues.
Durbin Feltman might also earn himself a look in the Majors before the end of the season. The right-hander has a 2.37 ERA, .174 BAA, and 0.84 WHIP in Triple-A. Feltman has 19 strikeouts in 19 innings pitched. Meanwhile, he holds a 2-0 record, three holds, and one save.
Grant Williams was recalled to Triple-A this week and has been on fire since then. The second baseman was 7-for-17 with three walks, one triple, four RBI, four runs, and one steal. This has sky-rocketed his average for Worcester from .118 to .265. It’s good to see him get another shot there and quickly prove himself.
Connor Wong once again had a strong week and his numbers have risen rapidly in Worcester. The catcher is now up to a .253/.286/.416 slash line with 10 doubles and five home runs. He has driven in 21 runs and scored 16 more in just 154 at-bats. Wong even has four steals, proving just how much he can do. Wong deserves a real role in the Majors next year.
Josh Ockimey is now holding on to a .239/.370/.442 slash line with nine doubles and 14 home runs. The average has gone up nicely and the on-base percentage is legitimately really strong. Ockimey has now driven in 39 runs and scored 33 more. Overall, a solid season that featured a great bounce back after a miserable start.
Johan Mieses is slashing .249/.332/.527 with 10 doubles, one triple, and 18 home runs between Double-A and Triple-A. The outfielder has driven in 46 runs and scored 41 more, stealing one base. It’s also important to remember, he missed some time due to the Olympics. Even with that though, this is a very productive season that’s definitely helped the 26-year-old’s stock.
