Red Sox Are Calling Up One Of Their Top Prospects Ceddanne Rafaela from Triple-A Worcester

The Red Sox are calling up one of their top young prospects after summoning outfielder/shortstop Ceddanne Rafaela from Triple-A Worcester.  Rafaela ranks as Boston’s No. 3 prospect.

Known as one of the top defensive prospects in baseball — MLB Pipeline calls him a “a Gold Glover waiting to happen with outstanding range along with plus arm strength” in the outfield — Rafaela is also a talented defender at shortstop and second base. He was hitting .302/.349/.520 with 20 homers, 36 steals and 31 doubles in the Minors this year between Double-A and Triple-A.
