Marcelo Mayer has maintained his spot as Boston’s No. 1 prospect, according to MLB Pipeline, and he continues to show why he’s earned that ranking.

The Red Sox drafted the shortstop with the fourth-overall pick during the 2021 Major League Baseball Draft. He has impressed with key highlights and as the face of Boston’s rising farm system.

The 19-year-old hit his 13th home run of the 2022 season Thursday. It was also his fourth for the High-A Greenville Drive.

Mayer finished his night 2-for-4 at the plate as the Drive came back to beat the Asheville Tourists at Fluor Field.

The shortstop has been in High-A since being promoted from the Single-A Salem on Aug. 8, and it’s not a surprise he’s projected to be Boston’s top prospect in 2023.
