Jul 29, 2022

The Boston Red Sox have a defensive wizard, who is continuing to rack up web gems in Portland Sea Dogs’ Ceddanne Rafaela.

Rafaela made a must-watch play Friday when hustled his way to the outfield grass from shortstop, making an electrifying grab with his back turned to the infield.

In fact, the catch was so impressive that the Sea Dogs themselves recommended Rafaela’s elite defensive abilities to the New England Patriots. The Sea Dogs tweeted “Something about this catch makes us think Ceddanne Rafaela might be useful to the @Patriots this fall.”

In the game against the Hartford Yard Goats, Rafaela also displayed some elite pop at the plate to accompany his spectacular glovework. The 21-year-old went 4-for-4 with a home run (8), two doubles (12), and two RBIs en route to a 7-6 Sea Dogs win. He entered Friday’s game hitting .309 with 16 home runs and 57 RBIs.
