3B,SS - MIA - DFA
Deven Marrero went 3-for-5 on Sunday vs the Blue Jays. He hit two singles, a double, with two RBIs, and three runs scored.
Marrero produced well for the Red Sox's in the Blue Jays series. He hit over .400 and extended his hitting streak to six games. Marrero's not a fantasy option by any means, but its nice to see some production out of a Red Sox's third baseman.
Deven Marrero went 2-for-4 Friday night vs the Blue Jays. He had two walks, two singles, three RBIs, and a run scored.
Marrero had an unexpected output, that helped contribute to the victory. He had several key base hits, that scored valuable runs, in the 7-4 extra inning affair. Unfortunately, he's still not fantasy relevant in any regard.
Deven Marrero hit a pair of home runs off Jose Quintana as the Red Sox beat the White Sox 13-7 on Tuesday night.
This sudden power surge from Marrero should be met with generous expectations, at best. Marrero had just one home run in over 360+ at-bats for Triple-A Pawtucket last season. And with Pablo Sandoval being activated off the disabled list, there is little room for production for Marrero in terms of fantasy purposes.
Devin Marrero is expected to slide over to second base to fill in for Dustin Pedroia (wrist), Ian Browne of MLB.com reports. He became the primary third baseman while Pablo Sandoval was on the shelf, but with the latter back in action, Marrero will slide over to fill the void left at second for the time being.
Marrero provides great defense for the Red Sox in the infield. Unfortunately, his bat is suspect and is hitting .175 over 21 games this season. He has never been able to hit consistently at any level in professional baseball and has no fantasy relevance whatsoever.
Red Sox infielder Deven Marrero could find himself in a new organization this off season as he is blocked at SS by Xander Bogaerts and not enough of an offensive presence to man 3B. Probably the best defensive infielder in the Red Sox system, Marrero could be an attractive option to an offensively sound team in need of a defensive upgrade.
The questions around Marrero have always been whether he would hit enough to stay in the Major Leagues. In his 56 plate appearance with the Red Sox this season Marrero posted a .226/.268/.283. Hardly inspiring numbers despite the very limited sample size. Even if Marrero finds a starting job in 2016 he is not an option at SS worth considering.
