The Outfielder has yet to appear in an MLB game, but he has turned heads recently.  He may not start the season on the 26-man roster, but he will be a big part of the next championship roster the Red Sox have.

Back of the Baseball Card:

Positions: Second Baseman and Centerfielder

Bats: Left / Throws: Right

Height: 6-2 / Weight: 212 lbs

Age: 24

Nickname: N/A

How he was acquired: Drafted by the Boston Red Sox in the 7th round of the 2018 Draft

Contract Status: Under team control through 2027


2020 Winter League Highlights:

 

  • During the regular season, he hit .236 with no home runs and a .658 OPS
  • In the finals he went 5-for-15 with two homers, two doubles, six RBIs, and seven runs.
  • Was named MVP of the finals and led his team to a championship

 

Player outlook:

 

Duran has received high praise from people in Baseball Twitter.  I see Jarren Duran being the centerfielder of the future for the Red Sox.  I think a good comparison would be Jacoby Ellsbury.  He has the speed and can hit for the average that Ellsbury had.  Hopefully, we continue to see Duran develop his power and maybe be one of the Top 10 centerfielders in the game one day.
