The Red Sox will promote third baseman Rafael Devers to the GCL Red Sox this weekend. The news was first reported by Ben Badler of Baseball America. SoxProspects sources have indicated that the move is not official at this time and is not yet a certainty.
The 17-year-old Devers got off to a fast professional debut in the Dominican Summer League, hitting a spectacular .442/.537/.814 in his first 11 games, and finishing with a .379/.476/.636 line. He had reached base in every game but one, and drove in 20 runs. Devers leads the circuit in runs batted in and was tied for second in hits (25).
