Red Sox prospect making bid for Opening Day roster

Published on

Boston Red Sox prospect Ceddane Rafaela has emerged as a potential candidate for the Opening Day roster. The 23-year-old has flashed the leather during spring training, but his offense may be better suited for Worcester. 

Rafaela’s defensive skills might be worth the offensive struggles. Boston was one of the worst defensive teams last season. They finished last in the majors with a -51 outs above average. Only the 2017 New York Mets (-58 OAA) have been worse.
