Triston Casas is less than two hours away from making his Major League Baseball debut, but the Boston Red Sox first baseman certainly doesn’t seem too nervous.
Casas, after officially being called up to Boston from Triple-A Worcester on Sunday, was laying in the outfield grass shirtless Sunday morning at Fenway Park, as shared by Boston Sports Journal’s Sean McAdam and WEEI’s Rob Bradford. The Red Sox’s No. 2 prospect is set to start at first base and bat sixth in Boston’s series finale against the Texas Rangers.
The Boston Globe’s Peter Abraham expressed how Casas “may have been the most chill” of any player he’s seen in the last two decades on the day of their debut for the big club.
Red Sox fans certainly are hoping the 22-year-old will bring that sort of confidence to the batter’s box in his first game, a sight Boston fans long have waited to see.
First pitch from Fenway Park is set for 1:35 p.m. ET, and you can watch it with NESN 360 after an hour of pregame coverage.
