Boston Red Sox: Jarren Duran Gets His First Career Big League Hit Off Gerrit Cole


The long awaited major-league debut for Red Sox prospect Jarren Duran finally happened on Saturday night. Duran who was called up on Thursday has had to wait to make his debut due to a cancelled game and he was not in the starting lineup for Friday night’s win.

Manager Alex Cora inserted the 24-year-old into the lineup on Saturday night against Yankees ace Gerrit Cole. After his long awaited debut, Duran made a impact right away. 

In the top of the second inning, Duran ripped the first pitch he saw off Cole for a base hit. Duran’s hit was a line-drive single to center field.


The FOX broadcast also captured Duran’s parents in the stands at Yankee Stadium. His family was ecstatic to see his first big league hit off of the Yankees ace.

Following Duran’s first big league hit, he would also score his first run of his career. Duran scored from second base off a Christian Arroyo base hit. The young center fielder showed off his blazing speed to give the Red Sox a 1-0 lead. According to Mike Petriello, Duran had a peak sprint speed of 29.3 feet per second as he sprinted home. 

Duran would end up striking out in his second at-bat against Cole.
