The Red Sox promoted infielder Deven Marrero to the major leagues over the weekend, adding some defensive depth to the bench.
- NHL Stanley Cup Popcorn Maker
- Price: $74.99
Marrero was drafted in the first round in 2012 out of Arizona State University. He played several weeks with the Red Sox last year, hitting .226/.268/.283 in 53 at-bats but is still a qualified rookie for 2016.
Marrero has not hit well at all this year, batting just .216/.256/.264 for Triple-A Pawtucket, with 12 walks and 54 strikeouts in 227 at-bats. He continues to perform well on defense and as noted that will keep him in the roster picture.
At this point I think I was wrong that he would hit a bit eventually.
