Deven Marrero went 3-for-5 with a double and two RBI as the Red Sox crushed the Blue Jays in Toronto on Sunday.

Marrero delivered a two-run double as part of an eight-run uprising in the seventh inning that put the nail in the coffin for the Blue Jays. He also scored three runs in the contest. Even with the strong day at the dish, the reserve infielder is still hitting just .212/.254/.347 on the season.
Jul 2 - 4:59 PM

Deven Marrero went 2-for-4 with two walks, three RBI, and a run scored Friday against the Blue Jays.

Marrero singled home a run in the sixth inning before providing some insurance with a two-run single in the 11th. The 26-year-old has driven in five runs over his last two games after having 12 RBI through his first 40 games this season. He’s not a fantasy option.
Jul 1 - 12:33 AM

Deven Marrero went 2-for-2 with a double, a sac fly, a walk and two runs scored as Boston's No. 9 hitter on Tuesday.

With Dustin Pedroia out and Pedro Sandoval on the DL, both Marrero and Josh Rutledge got to start tonight. Both have OPSs in the .500s at the moment, but Marrero's defense is a little stronger, which might give him an advantage at third after Pedroia returns.

Red Sox recalled INF Deven Marrero from Triple-A Pawtucket.

Marrero has hit only .157/.195/.301 during his time in the majors this season. He'll provide infield depth with Pablo Sandoval (ear infection) and Dustin Pedroia (ribs) banged up.

Red Sox optioned INF Deven Marrero to Triple-A Pawtucket.

Jun 14 - 3:59 PM

Deven Marrero hit a pair of homers off Jose Quintana as the Red Sox beat the White Sox 13-7 on Tuesday.

Marrero had a two-run homer in the second and a three-run blast in the third to knock Quintana out of the game. That matched his total of two homers in his previous 122 major league at-bats. He had just one homer in 363 at-bats for Triple-A Pawtucket last year. The Red Sox activated Pablo Sandoval from the disabled list today and figure to give him an opportunity to reclaim third base, but Marrero's defense could get him more playing time if Sandoval struggles.
May 31 - 12:34 AM

Deven Marrero hit a two-run home run, his first of the season, in Thursday's win over the Rangers.

Marrero gave the Red Sox a little insurance with his eighth-inning blast, his first in 17 games this year and just his second as a major leaguer. His first came back in 2015. Marrero isn't known for his offense, batting .178/.229/.289 this year.

Mar 27 - 8:34 AM

Deven Marrero underwent a successful arthroscopy and debridement of his right elbow on Wednesday.

Marrero is a former first-round pick and was considered a promising infield prospect at one point, but the 26-year-old batted just .198/.245/.242 in 388 plate appearances this summer with Triple-A Pawtucket and now he'll be in rehab mode for much of the winter. He could be removed from Boston's 40-man roster ahead of the Rule 5 Draft in December.
