Deven Marrero: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Marrero is a slick-fielding shortstop who is major-league ready in the field and is starting to show promise at the plate. He slashed a career-high .291/.371/.433 in 68 games at Double-A Portland before a July promotion to Triple-A Pawtucket. He struggled at the advanced level, but his showing at Portland was well beyond expectations. Can he improve the second time around at Triple-A, similar to his adjustment at Double-A? That's ultimately what the Red Sox will be looking for in 2015. He currently projects as a major league shortstop that hits in the bottom third of the order, but there's gap-power potential in bat. He'll open the season at Triple-A Pawtucket, and it will be interesting to see if he is able to push Xander Bogaerts off of shortstop, though Marrero may wind up getting traded following the addition of Pablo Sandoval and Hanley Ramirez in November.
Marrero didn't put up alluring numbers in his first full season of pro ball, slashing .252/.338/.317 in stops at High-A Salem and Double-A Portland in 2013. However, he continued to display outstanding defensive skills, rating as the best infield arm and defender according to Baseball America, and earning himself the organizational title as the system's top baserunner (25-for-27 on stolen-base attempts). Marrero has a nice swing and manages the strike zone, but how much offense he develops is the big question. If he can make contact, develop line drive power, and sustain an average in the .260-.270 range, he projects as a starting major league shortstop. There's an organizational logjam at middle infield with Marrero, Mookie Betts and Sean Coyle all vying for at-bats at Double-A Portland. Look for some sort of SS/2B/DH platoon among the three, but Marrero's ticket to the bigs is his defense at short.
Marrero, Boston's first-round pick in 2012, hit better than expected at short-season Lowell in 2012. The 22-year-old is considered a plus defender who will likely remain a middle infielder. He showed a good eye at the plate, made consistent contact and flashed some speed on the bases. His challenge in the coming years is to sustain the offense we saw in 2012.
