As the week in college baseball rolls on, if you’re the brother of a Boston Red Sox hitter, chances are you’re going deep.

On Tuesday, Triston Casas’ brother blasted a long home run for the South Carolina Gamecocks. On Wednesday, it was up to the younger brother of one of Boston’s top prospects.

Last season, Kyle Teel hit .407 with an OPS over 1.100 with the Virginia Cavaliers before being selected by the Red Sox with the No. 14 overall pick in the 2023 MLB Draft. Fast forward to 2024 and Virginia has another Teel in the lineup: Kyle’s younger brother, Aidan.

During a midweek matchup with Virginia Military Institute, the sophomore utilityman smacked his first career college home run out to right field.

Teel enters the season as one of the Red Sox organization’s most coveted prospects alongside shortstop Marcelo Mayer and outfielder Roman Anthony.
