Boston Red Sox prospect infielder Enmanuel Valdez put on yet another show Friday with Triple-A Worcester, this time being responsible for nearly half the offense’s run production in a 14-5 victory.
The 23-year-old finished his night going 4-for-6 with two home runs and six RBIs in the WooSox’s game against the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders. Valdez’s stellar performance continued his impressive display with Worcester. Valdez, along with Double-A Portland right fielder Wilyer Abreu, were both acquired from the Houston Astros in exchange for former Red Sox catcher Christian Vázquez.
The WooSox lineup hit a season-high five homers in the game with designated hitter Abraham Almonte (2-for-4) also going deep twice and Triston Cassas (3-for-4) providing the other blast along with a double.
In 52 games this season at the Triple-A level, Valdez has totaled 14 homers. However, when including his 44 games to start his 2022 season in Double-A, the former international free agent has hit 25 homers alongside 89 RBIs.
Valdez has managed to leave quite the impression at the plate so far during his time with the WooSox.
