Deven Marrero Shaping Up As Excellent Trade Bait

Deven MarreroIt is clear the Boston Red Sox will need to make some moves this off season to shape up a respectable ball club. With the depth they possess in the outfield, which is complemented by a deep farm system, they have pieces to move.

Taking a look at Red Sox prospects who are playing well in the Arizona Fall League, none have put up a stronger performance than shortstop Deven Marrero. Marrero, 24, was a first round draft pick back in the 2012 MLB draft and although his glove has progressed nicely for the most part, his bat still has potential but lags behind a bit.

After hitting .210/.260/.285 for the Paw Sox in 50 games this past season, Marrero has really turned things around while playing for the Surprise Saguros. He is 10-for-31 and has drawn nine walks in 10 games while smacking eight hits in 19 at-bats off of right-handed pitching.

As he is hitting well in such tough competition, boasts an excellent glove on defense and a younger shortstop in Xander Bogaerts on the depth chart, Marrero certainly makes excellent trade bait for the Boston Red Sox if they wish to deal him.

Owning a career .690 OPS in 286 regular season Minor League games, the Red Sox may have their doubts of whether or not Marrero’s bat will be able to last in the big leagues. To put it this way, Jackie Bradley Jr. who owns a career .531 OPS in 127 big league games has a career .850 OPS in 232 games down on the farm.

According to, Marrero ranks 12th on the Red Sox list of top prospects in a farm system loaded with depth meaning he may be a top prospect for another team. With this in mind, the trade value is definitely there.

Perhaps Marrero is bundled up in a deal for a starting pitcher or perhaps he is dealt straight up for Stephen Vogt (one can hope). Either way, he has trade value and could allow the Red Sox to make a big deal this off-season.

Odds are he will not be the Derek Jeter of the Red Sox that he hopes to be, but he will definitely help the team regardless of whether or not they deal him elsewhere.
