Jeter Downs is on the board.
Downs, acquired from the Los Angeles Dodgers last year in the Mookie Betts trade, struggled to begin the 2021 season with Triple-A Worcester. But the top prospect broke out Saturday, racking up three hits including his first home run above the Double-A level.
And it was an absolute bomb. Take a look:
Downs is widely regarded as one of the top two prospects in the Boston Red Sox farm system. Drafted and developed as a shortstop by the Dodgers, many believe he is the second baseman of the future in Boston.
With Saturday’s performance, the 22-year-old now is hitting .237 with one homer, three RBIs and four stolen bases this season.
