Early look at Red Sox prospect All-Stars: Second Base
Nick Yorke (Portland, AA)
Now this one was a tough one to pick, as there are a few players to choose from who have played second base in the minor leagues this season, but none that have played it the most consistently and with more poise than 21-year-old Nick Yorke.
Before getting to his offensive numbers, the thing that stands out to me about Yorke is his defensive numbers. In just 38 games at second base, he has tallied just two errors on the season. In all 46 games he's played, he has also hit the ball well too - collecting a batting average of .294 with seven home runs and 26 RBI.
In addition to this, Yorke has shown some speed collecting eight doubles and three triples, giving him 88 total bases on the season and it hasn't even reached the All-Star break yet, let alone the Futures Game. Yorke should be a name to watch out for on that roster as well.
Honorable Mentions: Nico Goodrum (AAA), Max Ferguson (High-A), Tyler McDonough (AA).
