CF - BOS - MiLB
Jarren Duran went 2-for-3 with a homer, a walk, two RBI, and two runs scored in Thursday's game for Triple-A Worcester.
Duran now has four homers over his past five games. The 24-year-old underwent a swing change entering 2020, and he displayed his newfound power at Boston's alternate training site. That success has now carried over to 2021, and the power-speed combo is wildly exciting for fantasy purposes. The Red Sox could use an impact bat for one of their corner outfield positions, which means Duran could be up sometime in June.
Red Sox manager Alex Cora says OF prospect Jarren Duran will see a lot of action with the big league club this spring.
Essentially, Duran is going to be given a legit chance to show what he can do. The 24-year-old speedster flashed a lot of upside between the Puerto Rican Winter League and the Caribbean Series this offseason. If given consistent playing time, Duran could be a legitimate difference-maker for fantasy managers seeking stolen bases. He's a name to scoop up in dynasty leagues right now.
The Red Sox will add Jarren Duran to their 60-man roster pool Tuesday, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.
Duran a top prospect in the Red Sox organization will report to the Red Sox's alternative training site in Pawtucket. The 23-year-old outfielder will probably not make the final roster for the team and is still a couple of years away from being major league ready.
The Red Sox have promoted outfield prospect Jarren Duran to Double-A Portland.
Durran, a seventh-round pick from 2018, is skyrocketing through Boston's minor league system. The 22-year-old hit .387 with 18 stolen bases and 49 runs scored in 50 games at Single-A this season. Durran is someone worth grabbing now in dynasty leagues. He possesses major stolen base upside.
