Red Sox Triple-A (Worcester)

Ceddanne Rafaela homered on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. His streak ended on Sunday, when he went 3-for-5 with a double and two RBI. The right-handed hitting centerfielder is slashing .328/.379/.688 with nine doubles, two triples, and 11 home runs in Triple-A. He's driven in 29 runs, scored 23 more, and stolen three bases.

Wilyer Abreu drew some walks and hit another home run this week. The left-handed hitting outfielder is slashing .240/.361/.438 with seven doubles, one triple, and 14 home runs. He's driven in 42 runs, scored 53 more, and stolen six bases.

Stephen Scott's monster season in Triple-A continues. The left-handed hitting catcher is slashing .286/.385/.602 with seven doubles and eight home runs in 31 games at the level. He's driven in 32 runs, scored 20 more, and stolen two bases.

Niko Kavadas is slashing .216/.388/.353 with four doubles and one home run in Triple-A. The left-handed hitting first baseman has driven in six runs and scored 11 more. Kavadas can get hot quickly, and he hasn't been miserable so far.

David Hamilton is slashing .247/.353/.451 with 14 doubles, three triples, and 13 home runs (career-high). He's driven in 37 runs, scored 54 more, and stolen 41 bases. Hamilton is proving he can hit Triple-A pitching. Now can he take the next step?

Ronaldo Hernandez is slashing .256/.352/.485 with 10 doubles and 14 home runs. The right-handed hitting catcher has driven in 49 runs, scored 37 more, and stolen one base. Hernandez has been fantastic this season, but the defense might be holding him back.

Ryan Fitzgerald is back and still mashing. The left-handed hitting utility is slashing .289/.354/.537 with 21 doubles, three triples, and 11 home runs. He's driven in 52 runs, scored 43 more, and stolen five bases. I'll say it again, Fitzy deserves a shot somewhere.

Brandon Walter tossed 3 1/3 shutout innings out of the bullpen in his lone appearance this week. The conversion to a reliever really seems to have worked wonders for the left-handed pitcher. He's already given the Red Sox some good innings and will likely be back in the Majors soon.
