Boston Red Sox: Franchy Cordero and Johan Mieses Power Wowing WooSox Fans

SHARE:

The ball was flying out of Polar Park on Friday night as the WooSox crushed five home runs to earn a 12-1 win over the Red Wings.  Franchy Cordero and newly promoted slugger Johan Mieses sent moonshots into the Worcester sky and combined for three home runs in the win.

Mieses hit a memorable home run for his first with the WooSox and his 12th on the season when he crushed the first pitch he saw from Red Wings starter Rogelio Armenteros.  His home run was a tape measure shot that landed 435 feet and hit the railroad embankment behind the top level.

"Thanks to God I feel really good," Mieses said through a translator following the game.  Mieses is now tied with Angels prospect Jo Adell for the most home runs in the minors.  "I want to make sure I get good contact and want to put a good swing on every ball that comes my way," added Mieses. 

The Red Sox signed Mieses as a minor league free agent back in 2019.  The 25-year-old Dominican spent the majority of his career with the Dodgers and is listed at 6-foot-2 and 185 pounds.  Mieses will help provide outfield depth in the system, and potentially beyond if he continues to swing a hot bat. 

In addition to Mieses' massive home run, Cordero put on a show of his own with a pair of home runs.  Cordero hit a solo shot that went right of the board in center field.  He also hit an impressive three-run home run that went 442-feet that hit the top of the Abbvie board in deep center.  The Abbvie board is 40 feet high.

"I put the best swing I could on that ball and the ball traveled the way it did," said Cordero through a translator. 

Cordero has been hitting the cover off the ball since his demotion to Worcester.  He is hitting .379 with four home runs and seven RBI's in seven games.  Boston is hoping Cordero can find his swing on a more consistent basis in Triple-A.  Red Sox Manager Alex Cora recognizes the at-bats are important for Cordero because he figures into the team's present and future.

"It was getting hard to get him at-bats and, although he's important for us in the present, he's very important for us in the future," said Cora.  "He hasn't played a lot the last few years. For him to go down there and get at-bats -- consistent at-bats -- and keep improving on swing decisions and controlling the strike zone, it's very important."

Cordero came over from the Royals in the Andrew Benintendi trade back in February.  He hit .179, (17-for-95) with one home run, six doubles in 34 games with the Red Sox.  On Friday, the Red Sox, Mets and Royals finalized their three-team trade and Boston received the final three players to be named later
