Red Sox top prospect Rafael Devers was called up on Sunday. He is expected to be in the lineup on Tuesday night. Is this a good move or bad move?
Well, I don’t like the move. Despite the fact that Deven Marrero and Brock Holt have done nothing in the lineup, I just don’t like the idea of rushing Devers to the majors. Yoan Moncada was rushed up to the MLB and he failed to produce for the Sox. I would’ve been more comfortable with a move at the deadline. Try and trade some prospects away for a starting third baseman. Let’s just hope Devers does well for us this week. If he doesn’t, a trade is still an option. I might even trade away Devers if he does well, sell him high. The question is, will Devers be a better option then the third baseman that are available right now in the trade market? We’ll just have to wait and see what the Sox do.
I trust Dave Dombrowski to do what’s best for this team.
