defensive instincts that the Red Sox think is capable of
fielding multiple positions.
Arm: Plus arm.
Reportedly referred to as “El Capitán” by teammates for his

Was set to participate in the 2022 Fall Performance Program that
was cancelled due to Hurricane Ian.
Intriguing player with some solid characteristics at the plate

to handle more advanced pitching, but defensive profile gives
him a higher-than-usual floor for someone his age.
