Anthony, the Red Sox Minor League Player of the Year through Baseball America and the team’s Offensive Minor League Player of the Year, moved from Low-A Salem to Double-A Portland throughout the course of the summer. Across the three levels in 106 games, the 2022 second-round draft pick slashed .272/.403/.466 for a .869 OPS with 14 home runs and 64 RBIs.

To the mound, Gonzalez threw the first six innings of a combined no-hitter in July with Double-A Portland. In a developmental year, the right-hander went 9-4 with a 3.96 ERA in 25 starts between High-A Greenville and Double-A Portland.
