SS - BOS
Red Sox prospect INF Jeter Down (thumb) was placed on the Triple-A injured list.
It's considered a minor issue. However, Downs has been one of the biggest prospect "fallers" this season. The 23-year-old is hitting just .179 in 81 games for Triple-A Worcester. Once viewed as Boston's second baseman of the future, Downs will enter the offseason as a legitimate long-term question mark for the organization.
Red Sox prospect INF Jeter Downs hit two homers in Sunday's game for Triple-A Worcester.
The 22-year-old hasn't had the season that many were hoping for, batting just .220 with a .697 OPS here in mid-June. The two homers were encouraging, though, so hopefully Downs can pick it up as the summer moves along. He was one of the pieces Boston received in return for Mookie Betts two offseasons ago.

It doesn't sound like a serious issue at all. Downs is arguably Boston's top prospect and could debut at some point this summer. He was the centerpiece of the Mookie Betts trade from last offseason, alongside Alex Verdugo.
Red Sox prospect INF Jeter Downs was removed from Sunday's Grapefruit League game due to an apparent injury.
As of now this appears to be precautionary. We'll update Downs' status if anything more comes out regarding his status.
Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports the Red Sox are adding Jeter Downs to their 60-man player pool.
Downs was one of the main pieces acquired in the Mookie Betts trade this past offseason. The 21-year-old infielder has a good chance at becoming Boston's everyday second baseman sometime in 2021.
