Homers in back-to-back games
1BBoston Red Sox  AAA
August 27, 2018
Ockimey went 2-for-3 with a home run, a walk, three RBI and two runs Sunday in Triple-A Pawtucket's 8-3 win over Buffalo.
ANALYSIS
Ockimey had recorded just one extra-base hit over his last 13 games entering the weekend before going deep in back-to-back contests against Buffalo. The first baseman has totaled 20 home runs between Double-A Portland and Pawtucket this season to solidify himself as one of the Red Sox's top hitting prospects, but that distinction isn't overly prestigious with Boston boasting one of the weaker farm systems in baseball.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
Ockimey climbed the organizational prospect rankings off a promising year of growth in his first stop at a full-season affiliate. The lefty-hitting first baseman hit .226/.367/.425 with 18 homers in 117 games at Low-A Greenville. The promise is in the power stroke and his on-base ability. What the slash line doesn't reveal is an improvement in both his strikeout and walk rates, attributable to having him fit for contact lenses. Although there's still a significant level of swing-and-miss at the plate, he showed enough with his bat to warrant interest. There were negatives, however, as Ockimey is a pull-heavy hitter who faced infield shifts, something rarely seen at the lower level of the minors. He'll need to develop some opposite field power or he runs the risk of falling below the level of a .250 hitter. As a prospect limited to first base defensively, Ockimey will need to hit for power and average in order to be a part of Boston's long-term plans.
Ockimey, a fifth-round draft pick 2014, is a well-developed prospect (6-foot-1, 225 pounds) who is limited to first base. As such, his bat needs to be good. He showed some power potential at Short-Season Lowell in 2015, but there's also a lot of swing-and-miss in the bat, striking out in 34 percent of his plate appearances. He tends to get the bat out early, which leaves him vulnerable to off-speed offerings. Ockimey will need to hit and hit for power if he's going to move up the ladder.
