  • Ceddanne Rafaela Hits First Big-League Homer

    Boston Red Sox rookie outfielder Ceddanne Rafaela went 2-for-5 with his first career major-league home run (a solo shot), a double and a strikeout in the team's 4-1 loss to the division-rival New York Yankees in Game 2 of a doubleheader on Tuesday. Rafaela played shortstop in Game 1 and went hitless in three at-bats with a walk. The 22-year-old was more productive at the plate in the leadoff spot for Boston in Game 2, and he's now gone an impressive 10-for-29 (.345) with a homer, three doubles, two RBI, a stolen base and six runs scored in his first 13 games with Boston. Rafaela should play regularly down the stretch to close out the 2023 campaign and he could open the 2024 season on Boston's big-league roster as a super-utility player.

  • Ceddanne Rafaela Hitting Leadoff Against Rays

    Boston Red Sox prospect Ceddanne Rafaela is making the start at shortstop and is batting leadoff on Tuesday against right-hander Zach Eflin and the Tampa Bay Rays. Rafaela has played in six major-league games since being called up last week, but this will be just his second start for the BoSox. In eight plate appearances so far, he has three hits (one double), an RBI, four strikeouts and a run scored. Both of the 22-year-old's starts have come at shortstop, but he's also appeared in five games in center field. Rafaela's athleticism will make him an option to play all over, but he'll likely continue to play sparingly in Boston to close out the 2023 regular season. Per MLB Pipeline, Rafaela is considered the team's No. 3 prospect.

  • Ceddanne Rafaela Leading Off In First MLB Start Wednesday

    Boston Red Sox infielder/outfielder Ceddanne Rafaela is hitting out of the leadoff spot in what marks his first MLB start on Wednesday versus the Houston Astros and left-hander Framber Valdez. Rafaela didn't start on Monday or Tuesday following his big-league promotion but did log a single in his lone plate appearance on Monday. The 22-year-old top prospect combined to slug 20 home runs alongside 36 stolen bases in 108 games between Double-A and Triple-A this season, most recently hitting .312 with 14 HR, six SB, and a .988 OPS across 48 games with Triple-A Worcester. He will play shortstop Wednesday afternoon in Boston.

  • Red Sox Calling Up Ceddanne Rafaela

    The Boston Red Sox are recalling outfield prospect Ceddanne Rafaela from Triple-A Worcester on Monday. Rafaela, the team's No. 3 prospect per MLB Pipeline, won't be in the Red Sox's starting lineup on Monday against the Houston Astros, however. The 22-year-old earned his first major-league call-up by hitting .302 (134-for-444) with 20 home runs, 31 doubles, three triples, 79 RBI, 36 stolen bases and 80 runs scored in 108 games with Double-A Portland and Worcester this year. At least until Jarren Duran (toe) returns from the injured list, Rafaela could see decent playing time in Boston's outfield as we get ready to enter the final month of the regular season. On top of his power/speed combination on offense, Rafaela is a Gold Glove-caliber outfielder.

  • Ceddanne Rafaela Homers In Fifth Straight Game

    Boston Red Sox prospect Ceddanne Rafaela launched another home run on Saturday, marking the fifth consecutive game he's gone deep. Overall, the 22-year-old carries a blistering .317/.370/.683 slash line with 11 home runs through 30 games since being promoted to Triple-A Worcester. Rafaela is the second-ranked prospect in the Red Sox farm system and the No. 75 prospect in baseball, per MLB Pipeline. His plate discipline could still use some work, as evidenced by his underwhelming 5.2% walk rate, but there's not much left for Rafaela to accomplish in the minor leagues. A call-up appears imminent, though the Red Sox may not need him until 2024. Regardless, Rafaela is a coveted dynasty asset with impressive potential.

  • Ceddanne Rafaela On Fire In Triple-A

    Boston Red Sox top outfield prospect went 1-for-5 with a double and two RBI in Saturday's game in Triple-A. Rafaela was promoted to Triple-A in late June and has been hitting well ever since. The 22-year-old prospect had six home runs and 18 doubles in 60 games in Double-A, but he has hit six home runs and six doubles in just 19 games in Triple-A. Despite this eye-popping production, Rafaela must still work on his plate discipline. The young outfielder has a 23.9% strikeout rate and a 5.3% walk rate in Triple-A. If Rafaela continues to strike out at this rate, his promotion to the majors could be delayed. Fantasy managers in redraft leagues probably won't need to pick him up this year, but Rafaela remains a valuable player in dynasty.

  • Ceddanne Rafaela Doing Well In Triple-A

    Boston Red Sox infield/outfield prospect Ceddanne Rafaela hasn't missed a beat since being promoted from Double-A Portland to Triple-A Worcester on June 28. In that time, he has hit .261 with four homers, seven RBI and one stolen base. Between both levels, Rafaela has hit .289 with 10 homers, 44 RBI and 31 stolen bags. The 22-year-old has always had strong defensive skills in the outfield and around the infield, but his bat finally caught up this past season when he hit a career-high 21 homers with 86 RBI. Rafaela has enough defensive versatility to make an impact at the next level, but the Red Sox are likely to continue developing his bat with the hope to lower his chase rate (66 strikeouts in 71 games) and strengthen his eye at the dish. For the moment, Rafaela has more value in dynasty leagues and would be nothing more than a dart throw in single-year deeper mixed leagues.
