Top Fantasy Baseball Prospects: Triston Casas
Ranked as the No. 2 overall prospect in the Red Sox organization and just inside the top 25 in the game (MLB.com), Casas is expected to become one of the next big stars in Boston. The Red Sox certainly hope that’s the case, as he should have the gig at first base locked down already.
After posting a healthy .863 OPS with 11 homers and 20 doubles across 72 games at Triple-A Worcester last year, Casas got his first call-up to the show and debuted September 4 in Boston. Things did not get off to a great start, as he picked only three hits (two HR) over his first 38 at-bats. However, Casas did not take long to adjust to MLB pitching.
Over his final 13 games in 2022, Casas posted an outstanding .316/.490/.579 slash line with three long balls across 51 plate appearances. He managed to walk (13) more than he struck out (11) during that stretch. That’s particularly impressive for such a young hitter and tracks right along with his reputation for solid plate discipline as a minor leaguer. Casas possesses both middle-of-the-order power and a mature approach beyond his 23 years of age.
