RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
The Red Sox feel Jerez has five-tool potential, but at 19, he's very raw and needs to polish his skills. Things have come easy for Jerez, but he'll be dealing with an advanced level of competition and he needs to work on his swing and ability to hit secondary offerings. Jerez will start his career with Boston in center field, but he there's potential for his body to grow and he may find a home at a corner outfield spot. The Red Sox feel his defense is good enough to translate from center. If he can develop his swing in spring training, he could open the year at Low-A Greenville. Otherwise, he'll hang back in extended spring training and head to Short-Season Lowell in June.
