Red Sox pro­mote 3B prospect

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - THE SECOND PAGE -

The Bos­ton Red Sox are call­ing up third base prospect Rafael Dev­ers af­ter fail­ing to find a bet­ter so­lu­tion on the trade mar­ket. Dev­ers will join the Red Sox in Seat­tle to­day and make his ma­jor league de­but against the Mariners on Tues­day, Bos­ton pres­i­dent of base­ball op­er­a­tions Dave Dom­browski said Sun­day. The Red Sox have got­ten lit­tle pro­duc­tion from third this sea­son. They had hoped for a bounce back from Pablo San­doval, but re­leased him last week. Dom­browski said Bos­ton ex­plored a trade to up­grade the po­si­tion, but Dev­ers “gives us as good a chance as any­body that we’ve had a chance to ac­quire.” Dev­ers, 20, hit .368 with two home runs and four RBI in 10 games with Class AAA Paw­tucket af­ter bat­ting .300 with 18 home runs in 77 games at Class AA Port­land.
