Vaughn Grissom Could Start Rehab Work Next Week

  • Headshot for Vaughn Grissom

    Boston Red Sox manager Alex Cora said on Monday that second baseman Vaughn Grissom (groin, hamstring) will come to Fenway Park on April 9 to be a part of the team's regular-season home opener festivities. Grissom has been ramping up in Fort Myers, and Cora's hope is that the infielder can start a minor-league rehab assignment shortly after that. The Red Sox acquired Grissom as the key piece of this past offseason's Chris Sale trade, so he is expected to be Boston's starting second baseman upon his return. While he struggles defensively, the 23-year-old former top Atlanta Braves prospect has slashed an encouraging .287/.339/.407 with 15 extra-base hits, 27 RBI, 29 runs scored, and five stolen bases across 216 career big-league at-bats. Keep Grissom on fantasy watchlists for now. In the meantime, Enmanuel Valdez and Pablo Reyes will maintain a platoon at the keystone.
