MLB Prospect Watch: Why Triston Casas could Be Red Sox’s Answer to Their Cold Challenges

The Boston Red Sox entered the slate on Friday in last place in the American League East with a history of 11-19. Their minus-20 diversity sets them apart from the likes of the Baltimore Orioles, Colorado Rockies and Washington Nationals, three unbeaten teams as competitors. Our Mike Axisa read about Red Sox challenges earlier this week, I realize, among other challenges, that the Boston list has been a bit overwhelming.

In fact, the Red Sox are ranked 27th in the fastest-growing league and 26th in wRC +, a FanGraphs measure that converts football among other races. The Red Sox have only three players with more than 50 trips to the plate with an OPS + over 70. The poorest hits include first baseman Bobby Dalbec, who is starting to lose starting work for Franchy Cordero. Cordero has 85 OPS + in the form of 23 plates, which makes him a “hot” hitter, in line with what the Red Sox currently have.

The Red Sox seem to have a plan to fix their cold corner problems by the man Triston Casas. CBS Sports picked Casas as the 19th best prospect in the season, and has hit .243 / .351 / .468 with six appearances in 134 appearances to the plate and Triple-A Worcester. Compared – and remember, it is not apples-to-apples that are given the type of competition in any event – Boston’s first baseman combined to hit .128 / .229 / .196 so far this season.

As a result, CBS Sports posed the following question to a handful of competitors this week: why did the Red Sox not support Casas?

Long-time readers who have begun to have doubts as the teams bolster their high hopes will be encouraged to know that another official has responded to the above with their question: “Well, when can the Rays encourage Casas?”

Boston baseball chief Chaim Bloom has joined the Tampa Bay Rays – the same club with a record-breaking history of the game, starting with Evan Longoria and Wander Franco. (The Rays eventually signed Longoria and Franco for an extended period of time.) In view of this, it would be understandable if Bloom was just wasting time on Casas’ chance to win a Super Two title (a benefit that comes. With an extra year worth arguing). If so, the process usually runs from mid to late June.

Some reviewers were not intrigued by their responses. As one scout has pointed out, while Casas has been a major hit in the International League, his findings have raised concerns. Specifically, its interest rate has risen by 3 percent compared to last season. K multiplication of the home is accompanied by its decrease in contact with it. Investigators have indicated that they believe this could lead to Casas’ biggest problems if the Red Sox would encourage him on The Show.

Thus, Casas may find himself in the middle of a philosophical debate over the timing of optimism. Is it valid only if the player has demonstrated Triple-A skills, or is it better to press a button sooner if it would require a major league club? Other than that, even if Casas does not live up to their expectations, they could stand up for the much-needed promotion for the Red Sox, whose game chances are down to 17.4 percent, according to Baseball Prospectus.

The situation is much more than that, obviously, the teams have to evaluate how much they are struggling in the major leagues – and, perhaps, even the need to return to smaller leagues in time – could affect the confidence and longevity of those expected. -the growth of time. It should also be noted that Casas is only 22 years old with 40 Triple-A games under his belt. It is safe to assume that they will need some spice before being pushed into a place that is considered to be savior.

None of this and the knocking on the door of those who saw Casas house go beyond Triple-A suspiciously; sometimes the expectations, however, are not about money.
