SS - PHI - MiLB
The Red Sox traded INF C.J. Chatham to the Phillies in exchange for a player to be named later.
Chatham was ranked as the 14th best prospect in the Red Sox organization. He makes decent contact and will compete for a bench spot with the Phillies in Spring Training. The 26-year-old INF was part of the Red Sox player pool in 2020, but didn’t make his MLB debut. Chatham slashed .302/.330/.430 across 91 plate appearances at Triple-A Pawtucket in 2019.
C.J. Chatham was added to the Red Sox's 60-man player pool according to the team's website.
There looks to be an opportunity for Chatham to play this season. The 25-year-old infielder was added to Boston's 40-man roster during the off season. Chatman could fall into a utility role with his ability to play both shortstop and second base but will probably not see enough time to be fantasy relevant.
