Jay Groome, Red Sox Prospect, Putting Together Strong Start To Season

Groome has a 2.89 ERA for the Sea Dogs

by

The Boston Red Sox might finally be getting what has been expected from their 2016 first-round pick.

One of Boston’s top pitching prospects, Jay Groome, has put together a strong start to the 2022 season for the Double-A Portland Sea Dogs.

After a strong outing on Tuesday — one unearned run allowed with nine strikeouts and two walks in six innings — Goome’s numbers are quite impressive.

The highly-touted lefty has posted a 2.89 ERA with 38 strikeouts, 14 walks and a 1.21 WHIP in 37 1/3 innings, all at the Double-A level. At 23-years-old, it would not be surprising to see Groome make the jump to Triple-A, joining a pair of talented prospects who have done the same in May.

High-leverage reliever prospect Frank German received the call-up from Portland to Worcester on Tuesday. Last week, the Red Sox promoted the No. 1 pitching prospect in the organization, Brayan Bello, who dazzled in his Triple-A debut.

The rising pitching talent in the Red Sox farm system is encouraging for a team that has not successfully produced prospects at the position with any regularity as of late.
