Looking to shake their early-season downturn, the Red Sox are calling No. 4 possibility Jarren Duran to sign up with the group ahead of Friday’s series opener versus the White Sox, a source informed MLB.com.
Duran made his Major League launching soon after the All-Star break last season, however had a hard time to the tune of a .215/.241/.336 slash line in 33 video games. The efficiency led to the outfielder being optioned back to Triple-A Worcester in late August, and although he went back to the major league club in the middle of a COVID-19 break out, he didn’t play in the Majors after Sept. 1.
So far this year, Duran has actually been astonishing with Worcester, striking .397/.478/.638 with 8 extra-base hits and 7 takes in 15 video games. Over his last 2 video games, Duran has actually taped 5 RBIs and struck his 2nd crowning achievement of the season.
Duran’s promo comes a day after Shohei Ohtani and the Angels handed the Red Sox their 2nd nothing loss of the season. Boston ranks 24th in the Majors in runs scored (90 in 26 video games) and has actually gotten little offending production from daily outfielders Jackie Bradley Jr., Kiké Hernández and Alex Verdugo.
