Deven Marrero swatted his first major league home run, finishing 1-for-4 as the Red Sox defeated the Yankees on Monday.
Marrero boosted his team's lead to 5-1 with a solo blast off of Caleb Cotham in the ninth inning. The rookie hasn't done a whole lot at the plate, batting .286/.286/.371 with two RBI along with the one homer in 35 plate appearances. Sep 28 - 10:15 PM

Deven Marrero went 3-for-4 and scored twice Wednesday against the Orioles.

Marrero is 8-for-19 in the majors this year, but he to build on his 2014 campaign in Triple-A, coming in at .256/.316/.344 in 375 at-bats for Pawtucket. He's an excellent defender at shortstop, but perhaps not quite good enough to carry such a subpar bat. Unless someone wants to trade for him this winter, he'll probably head back to Triple-A as Xander Bogaerts injury insurance next year.

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

The 24-year-old infielder will help provide infield depth over the final month of the season. He's just 1-for-7 at the big league level this season.

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

The move clears a 25-man roster spot for Mookie Betts, who is back from the concussion disabled list. Marrero, 24, is 1-for-7 this season at the major league level.

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

The 24-year-old infielder takes the spot of Mike Napoli on the team's bench after he was dealt to the Rangers on Friday. He has appeared in just five games with the Red Sox this season, going 1-for-7 (.143) with a run scored and three strikeouts.
Aug 8 - 12:50 PM

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

Marrero saw only seven plate appearances in his nearly month-long stay with the big league Red Sox. He has a weak .650 OPS in 67 games this year at the Triple-A level.

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

Marrero will give the Red Sox middle infield depth while Dustin Pedroia recovers from a right hamstrings train. Marrero was a first-round pick in 2012, but he is sporting a weak .644 OPS in 66 games this season at the Triple-A level and is doubtful to carry fantasy value.
Jun 25 - 11:33 AM

Deven Marrero delivered the game-winning hit in the bottom of the 10th as the Red Sox edged the Rays 3-2 on Sunday.

Marrero also drove in a run with a groundout his first time up. Known for his glove, Marrero, a 2012 first-round pick, is batting .308 in 26 at-bats. He'll be Triple-A Pawtucket's shortstop this year, and he'll probably be the choice to step in for the Red Sox if Xander Bogaerts gets hurt at any point.
Mar 29 - 5:43 PM

Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports that the Red Sox "would have to include" prospect Deven Marrero in a potential trade for Athletics right-hander Jeff Samardzija.

The Red Sox have Xander Bogaerts in place as their shortstop of the future and the A's could use a young shortstop after trading away Addison Russell over the summer, so there are the building blocks for a satisfactory deal. However, the Red Sox will likely want to see what Jon Lester decides before considering the possibility. Red Sox GM Ben Cherington said earlier this month that there has been "steady interest" from other teams in the 24-year-old despite an underwhelming season in 2014 where he batted just .210/.260/.285 over 50 games during his first exposure to Triple-A.

Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington said Tuesday that there has been "steady interest" from other teams in shortstop prospect Deven Marrero.

Marrero is blocked in the big leagues by Xander Bogaerts, but that doesn't necessarily mean the Red Sox are rushing to trade the former 24th overall pick this winter. "There’s always been interest," said Cherington. "These things have a way of working themselves out, but guys who can play that position at a high level and produce a little offensively, those are valuable guys, and they’re good bets to have good major-league careers."

Red Sox prospect Deven Marrero led Surprise to a 2-1 victory over Scottsdale in Arizona Fall League action on Friday, going 2-for-3 with a pair of doubles and a run scored.

The 24-year-old is coming off an underwhelming 2014 season where he hit a mere .210/.260/.285 with one homer and 20 RBI over 50 games in his first exposure of Triple-A. He's now hitting .310/.474/.448 and owns an 8/9 K/BB ratio through nine contests in Arizona.

Red Sox shortstop prospect went 4-for-4 with a double for Triple-A Pawtucket on Saturday, bringing his line to .320/.363/.400.

Marrero has been hot during his time in Pawtucket, as he projects as a borderline gold glove candidate who hits .275 with doubles power. He will likely spend the rest of 2014 in Triple-A, and could take over as Boston's next "shortstop of the future", a position that has had a cast of replacements since Nomar Garciaparra was traded in 2004.

Red Sox shortstop prospect Deven Marrero went 2-for-4 for Triple-A Pawtucket on Friday.

So far, it looks like the Red Sox have done well drafting a shortstop from Arizona State for the second time, as Marrero has hit .320/.358/.400 in Triple-A after hitting .291/.371/.433 with Double-A Portland. Questions will remain about Marrero's ability to hit for power and if he will be able to hit at the replacement level, but he is a very good defensive shortstop who could be Boston's starting shortstop in 2015.

Red Sox prospect SS Deven Marrero went 4-for-5 with two doubles and six RBI on Sunday for Triple-A Pawtucket.

Marrero, 23, is enjoying a breakout performance in his second full professional season, with Sunday's big game pushing his 2014 batting line to .296/.369/.431. The shortstop also has five home runs, 23 doubles, 47 RBI, and 13 steals. Since his promotion to Triple-A earlier this month, Marrero has batted .326/.356/.419 with four doubles and eight RBI in 11 games. Boston's infield situation is already overcrowded, but it's clear Marrero has at least worked his way into the conversation.

Red Sox shortstop prospect Deven Marrero went 2-for-4 with a stolen base for Triple-A Pawtucket on Monday.

Marrero is hitting .409/.435/.500 with two doubles and a home run during his first six games in Triple-A. He will never be a great hitter, but he could be an average hitter who plays great defense who steals bases. The Red Sox have a log jam on the left side of their infield, and Marrero could be the long-term answer at shortstop, leaving third base to be split up between Bogaerts, Middlebrooks, and Cecchini.
