Boston Red Sox 2021 Season Preview: Corner Outfielders

បានប្រកាសនៅ Photography នៅApril 13 2021 at 03:25 PM

Welcome to the 2021 positional preview series. Over the next seven days, we will be looking at each position group catcher, corner infield, middle infield, corner outfield, center field,starting pitchers, and relief pitchers throughout the organization. For each installment we will take a look at the projected starter, the options to come off the bench, the depth pieces who will be waiting at the Alternate Site/at Triple-A, the top prospect, the sleeper prospect, all the rest of the prospects for each position, and where they stand in the division. Today we look head out to the corner outfielders.StartersHunter Renfroe,Marwin Gonzalez, Franchy CorderoYes, I aware there are only two corner outfield positions. No, I not expecting Marwin Gonzalez to stand on Franchy Cordero shoulders under a big trench coat Vincent Adultman style, though now that I typing it out it precisely what I rooting for. No, Cordero is likely going to miss a little time to start the season after a delayed start to camp, during which time Gonzalez is most likely to get the majority of the time in left field. It doesn look like Cordero will miss too much time so he still deserves mention here, but Gonzalez feels like he does too so they both there https://www.bostonpetsstore.com/John_Smoltz_Dog_Jersey-41.Renfroe, though, is the one who is looking like the best player of the trio in spring. We know spring stats don really mean a ton, but we also seen him be very good in real baseball games as well. Unfortunately, we also seen him be quite bad, and that was more recent. Last season he finished with a rough 77 wRC+, though it not hard to find reasons to toss aside numbers from 2020. Overall, Renfroe will bring big power https://www.bostonpetsstore.com/Jimmie_Foxx_Dog_Jersey-39, and the question will be how much contact he makes to maximize the power. Defensively, he has been anywhere from solid to great, and the Red Sox seem to lean more toward the latter end of the spectrum given that they appear willing to play him in center field some this year as well.Renfroe will mostly cover right field, however https://www.bostonpetsstore.com/Luis_Tiant_Dog_Jersey-46, with left field being the other two for the most part.Cordero will hopefully play the bigger role in this spot over the entire season as the Red Sox look to unlock the potential that a couple of other teams have been unable to previously. He has an enticing power/speed combination, but injuries and a lack of contact has held him back to this point in his career. That said, he still only 26,so it far from ridiculous to hold out hope.And then, as for Gonzalez, well, we talked about him in two of the three previous installments as well https://www.bostonpetsstore.com/Jimmie_Foxx_Dog_Jersey-39. His versatility is his biggest calling card, so while he will probably hold down left field to start, we can still expect him to move all around the diamond through the season to go with a roughly average to bit below average overall production at the plate.It also worth mentioning that Alex Verdugo will likely get a decent amount of time in right field, but for now we considering him the starting center fielder so we talk about him tomorrow https://www.bostonpetsstore.com/Nathan_Eovaldi_Dog_Jersey-54.BenchMichael Chavis, Kik HernndezGonzalez can be here too, but as I said he probably going to be starting in left to begin the season. That leaves Chavis as the only real depth option there on the bench, though Hernndez can play all three outfield spots as well despite being the nominal starter at second base. With him, the defense will be more than fine wherever he is. For Chavis, though, that not really the case. I think he has the athleticism to be more than fine in left field, particularly at Fenway, but he also not an outfielder by trade so he still rough around the edges. Alex Cora has said he wants Chavis to be concentrating on hitting and not learning the outfield, so it possible they will stick to that, but that could be easier said than done given their three-man bench and the makeup of it. I don expect him to spend a ton of time here, if at all, but in the long-term it probably best for him to add another position to his resum, and he has spent a bit of time here previously.Depth Yairo Muoz, Danny Santana, Csar Puello, Michael Gettys, Jarren DuranThe Red Sox don have tremendous amounts of depth in the corner outfield spots, though they aren in a terrible situation either. Muoz would almost certainly be the first of this group to be called up early in the season Johnny Pesky Dog Jersey, with none of these names being on the 40-man already. He the safest bat of the bunch and can more than handle left field. Puello and Gettys are more natural outfielders, but their bats are much bigger questions.
