Casas went 4-for-5 with a home run, double and four RBI on Monday in Low-A Greenville's 9-2 win over Kannapolis.
The four-hit performance was the first of Casas' career since he was selected in the first round of the 2018 first-year player draft. The third baseman has delivered multi-hit efforts in three of his past six starts and maintains a .275/.350/.517 line for the season.
Casas went 0-for-1 with a walk and a strikeout in Sunday's game against the Rays.
Casas made his debut in a major-league game, entering in the fifth inning for first baseman Mitch Moreland. Casas was Boston's first-round pick in 2018, then suffered a season-ending thumb injury two games into his professional career. He played third base in high school, but the organization is deep at that position, so expect to see more of the 6-foot-5, 240-pound Casas being exposed to first base.
Casas (thumb) took batting practice at Boston's minor-league camp Friday, Christopher Smith of MassLive.com reports.
Casas, the Red Sox's top pick in the 2018 draft, suffered a right thumb injury in his second professional game last June and underwent season-ending ulnar collateral ligament repair surgery. The gigantic third baseman -- the media guide lists the 19-year-old at 6-foot-5, 240 pounds -- is healthy once again. RotoWire ranks him fifth among Boston's prospects, but he may be the best power hitter in the system.
