  • Red Sox's Triston Casas: Nursing ankle issue

    Casas exited Tuesday's game with Triple-A Worcester for precautionary reasons after tweaking his ankle, Joe McDonald of the Worcester Telegram & Gazette reports.

    It doesn't appear to be a serious injury, as Casas attempted to remain in the contest before leaving with the training staff, per McDonald. The 22-year-old, who is the Red Sox's top prospect, will be re-evaluated Wednesday and should be considered day-to-day for the time being.

  • Red Sox's Triston Casas: Needs to improve vs. LHP

    Chief baseball officer Chaim Bloom said the Red Sox want Casas to be at Triple-A long enough for pitchers to get a chance to adjust to him so that he can make adjustments of his own, Christopher Smith of MassLive.com reports. "One of the things about the game today more than at any point maybe ever, certainly at any point I've been in it, is when you get to the major leagues, there is already a book on you," Bloom said. "And you will get attacked the way you should be attacked from pitch one. So going through that period of making those adjustments is really important."

    Casas, who bats left-handed, is hitting .154/.267/.192 with 11 strikeouts in 30 plate appearances against left-handed pitching at Triple-A this year, and Bloom noted his struggles against same-handed pitching. The Red Sox obviously want Casas to have a good chance of staying up with the big club whenever he does get the call, so while Bobby Dalbec has already been worth -0.5 fWAR through 26 games, they won't be bringing up Casas just because he has strong surface stats and plays the same position as Dalbec.

  • Red Sox's Triston Casas: Not considered for promotion

    Casas was not considered for a promotion when the Red Sox opted to call up Franchy Cordero, according to manager Alex Cora, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    While Casas is Boston's top prospect, it would have been a bit surprising if they'd called him up while he was hitting .225/.364/.437 through 20 games at Triple-A. Casas could certainly force the issue later this summer, particularly if Bobby Dalbec continues to struggle.

  • Red Sox's Triston Casas: Invited to big-league camp

    Casas was invited to Boston's major-league spring training Saturday.

    Casas performed well at Double-A Portland in 2021, slashing .284/.395/.484 with 13 homers, 57 runs, 52 RBI and six stolen bases across 77 games. He was rewarded with a promotion to Triple-A Worcester for the final week and a half of the minor-league season, and he'll now get a chance to work with the big-league coaching staff during spring training for a second straight year. The 22-year-old is unlikely to begin the 2022 campaign with the major-league squad but will likely be in the mix to debut at some point this year if he performs well in Worcester.

  • Red Sox's Triston Casas: Moving up to Triple-A

    Casas was promoted to Triple-A Worcester from Double-A Portland on Monday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    The 21-year-old has a .284/.395/.484 slash line in 329 plate appearances for Portland, and with the Double-A season wrapped up, he will continue his season with a handful of games with Worcester. Casas, who is Boston's top prospect, is unlikely to open 2022 in the majors but could make his big-league debut sometime next year if he performs well at Triple-A.

  • Red Sox's Triston Casas: Powering up

    Casas went 2-for-3 with two walks, two home runs and four RBI for Double-A Portland on Saturday.

    Casas had been in an extended power drought since the middle of July, hitting just one homer over 20 games (66 at-bats), but the Red Sox's No. 1 prospect busted out this weekend. Including the three home runs he belted during Friday's doubleheader, Casas has five in the last two days.

  • Red Sox's Triston Casas: Mired in power drought

    Casas hasn't hit a homer since May 23, batting just .222/.311/.278 -- a .589 OPS -- across 25 games for Double-A Portland in that span.

    The bright side is that he's still drawing walks at a steady pace while not striking out too much. Nonetheless, Casas is certainly erasing memories of his hot start to the season, and he has just four homers in all alongside a .268/.348/.395 batting line. This skid will certainly delay the timeline for the 21-year-old, who's been compared to the likes of Joey Votto and Anthony Rizzo, but is currently struggling to get to his power in game scenarios. Dynasty-league managers would do well to stay patient with him.

  • Red Sox's Triston Casas: Racking up hits at Double-A

    Casas went 2-for-3 with a walk, two runs, a stolen base and an RBI in Double-A Portland's 9-8 win over New Hampshire on Tuesday.

    The 21-year-old first baseman had been inactive for Portland for the past two weeks due to obligations for Summer Olympics qualifiers, but he was back in action Tuesday. He didn't miss a beat in his return to the lineup, extending his streak of two-hit games to four thanks to his pair of singles. He's now slashing .343/.418/.557 with four home runs and 17 RBI across 79 plate appearances for the Double-A affiliate.
