Red Sox Triple-A (Worcester)

Ceddanne Rafaela's having fun in Triple-A. The right-handed hitting centerfielder/shortstop is slashing .305/.352/.646 with six doubles, two triples, and six home runs in 19 games. He's driven in 18 runs, scored 14 more, and stolen one base.

Niko Kavadas has looked fantastic in a small sample size of Triple-A. The left-handed hitting first baseman is slashing .300/.533/.550 with two doubles and one home run. He's driven in two runs and scored six more. Kavadas has more walks (9) than strikeouts (8) through seven games.

Stephen Scott is quietly having a phenomenal season. The left-handed hitting catcher is slashing .284/.389/.515 with five doubles and four home runs in Triple-A. He's driven in 22 runs, scored 15 more, and stolen two bases. Scott has 13 walks compared to 12 strikeouts. If you add in his Double-A numbers, Scott already has 10 doubles and 10 home runs (matching his homer total from last season).

Ronaldo Hernández is slashing .252/.357/.455 with eight doubles and 11 home runs. The right-handed hitting catcher has driven in 46 runs, scored 30 more, and stolen one base. He's walked 30 times compared to 33 strikeouts. That's only one off a career-high for walks and three away from tying his total in the two previous years combined.

Ryan Fitzgerald is back and still mashing. The left-handed utility is slashing .300/.361/.557 with 18 doubles, two triples, and 10 home runs in Triple-A. Fitzy has driven in 48 runs, scored 35 more, and stolen five bases.

Wilyer Abreu hit another home run this week. The left-handed hitting outfielder is slashing .241/.364/.455 with seven doubles, one triple, and 13 home runs. Abreu has driven in 37 runs, scored 46 more, and stolen five bases.

Nick Sogard collected a hit in five of six games this week. The switch-hitting utility has a .291/.391/.396 slash line with 13 doubles, two triples, and four home runs. He's driven in 37 runs, scored 55 more, and stolen 13 bases.
