Red Sox Prospect Derrik Gibson Could Soon Be Playing Shortstop at Fenway Park (Video)


Prior to the 2012 season, the Red Sox had a shortstop controversy that took all the way until the final few days of spring training to figure out.

Mike Aviles ultimately won the job, but Pawtucket shortstop Jose Iglesias was still nipping at his heels even to start the season. It appears there may be a third dog in Boston's shortstop race, though. Only this one is a Sea Dog.

Derrik Gibson, the starting shortstop at Double-A Portland, has made a name for himself over the past few seasons and is continuing his success at the minor league level this season. Gibson is hitting .257 with 16 RBIs and eight steals in 49 games this year.

Check out the video above to find out more about Gibson and his chances at making it to Fenway someday.
