Early look at Red Sox prospect All-Stars: First Base
Blaze Jordan (Greenville, High-A)
If he hadn't played eight games in the big leagues this season, Bobby Dalbec would be the automatic choice with his 1.000 plus OPS, 14 home runs, and 30+ RBI. But, because he's been with Boston and actually started a few games, he is disqualified from being the front-runner for this position.
Blaze Jordan, however, has... Well... "Blaze"d his way through the South Atlantic League in 2023. (Too soon with the wildfires?) He has hit .299 with seven home runs and 36 RBI. Keep in mind, that's only through 49 games in Greenville.
The Boston Globe's Pete Abraham, recently wrote a story about Dalbec's resurgence and why there's no spot for him on Boston's roster, but the real question I'm asking myself looking at Jordan's numbers is: "why is there no spot for him on Portland's roster?"
