Carlos Asuaje: Quietly Consistent

Carlos AsuajeAlthough the Boston Red Sox roster is now loaded with talented rookies, there are more to come. Most of the Boston Red Sox top prospects, as of right now, are in the upper minors and are on the verge of making their debuts in the show. Looking further down on the farm, there is still plenty of talent. For example, look at low-A Greenville. In Greenville Manuel Margot and Trey Ball may be all the craze, but there are a number of other talented prospects on the team. One of these men is third baseman Carlos Asuaje, who Boston drafted in the 11th round of last year’s draft.

Asuaje, 22, is undersized at 5 ft. 9 in., weighing 160 lbs., but he plays like he is the biggest guy on the field. Showing some serious power potential at the plate in a very productive year all around, it is no wonder why he is starting to gain attention. On the year Asuaje is hitting .312 in 87 games while boasting a .399 OBP and smacking 35 extra base hits. Clipping 11 home runs, 10 triples and 24 doubles, he leads the South Atlantic League in slugging percentage, and at .557 is 30 points higher than the next highest man who is still active in the league.

Luckily, the lefty has no odd splits. He hits lefties just as well as righties and plays well at home and on the road. Carlos Asuaje is a guy who consistently plays well and posts impressive numbers wherever he goes.  The power seems to be new with him, but it is definitely a great sign as he has always made solid contact. It is good to see him developing power as it is an aspect of the game that separates good from great.

In the field, Asuaje is as versatile as they come. Playing second and third base, shortstop and outfield, there is not much more anyone can ask out of him. He plays all these positions well, making him a valuable asset to any team. Perhaps he could provide his services to the Salem Red Sox soon since he has already proved the South Atlantic League is much too easy for him.

Even though he is not talked about as much as Henry Owens, Carlos Asuaje is a legitimate prospect in the Boston Red Sox organization. Expect him to shoot up prospect lists for the Red Sox by the end of this year and expect his name to be very relevant to the future of the Boston Red Sox in 2016.
