Five possible offensive call-ups for the Red Sox
Oh, how things can change. After being one of the worst offenses in baseball for the first month of the season, the Red Sox have unquestionably had the league’s best bats over the past three weeks.
Since May 10, the club has had an almost unfathomable 157 WRC+ and is slashing .303/.369/.528. Rafael Devers and J.D Martinez have been two of the top five batters in all of baseball, Trevor Story has gone nuclear with seven home runs in seven games, and the bottom of the lineup is finally contributing.
Though they hardly need reinforcements, the Red Sox lineup could soon get even better. That’s because the requirements for MLB rosters are going to change on June 19th, allowing teams to carry an extra position player. In other words, the Red Sox are going to have a choice of who to add from a hard-hitting Worcester squad.
For this list, I ranked the five players who are most likely to get that callup. To be clear, these are not the five players I would choose for the new spot, but who I think is most likely to receive it. So without further ado, let’s kick things off with one of the hottest prospects in all of baseball.
