Red Sox Prospect Blaze Jordan Goes Off In Rookie League Game Vs. Twins

Jordan has played 12 games for the FCL Red Sox this season


July 23, 2021

The Boston Red Sox are having a good couple of weeks when it comes to their prospects.

Jarren Duran and Tanner Houck are starring at the major league level and No. 4 overall pick Marcelo Mayer signed a slot-value contract. To top it off, 2020 third-rounder Blaze Jordan on Friday went off in a Florida Complex League game against the FCL Twins.

The 18-year-old had the game of his career in the 9-1 win. Batting third, he went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer, his first professional triple (which he tried to turn into an inside-the-park grand slam, but got thrown out a home) and a whopping six RBIs.

For context, he had seven total RBIs through 11 appearances before Friday and was hitting .227 on the season. His performance pushed his batting average up to .250.

Jordan is ranked as the 10th overall prospect in the Red Sox system, with an estimated big-league arrival of 2024. If he keeps it up, it could be sooner than that.
