New Red Sox Prospect Victor Santos Has “Impressive Control”


Earlier in the year, the Red Sox traded infielder C.J. Chatham to the Phillies for a player to be named later or cash considerations. On Saturday, exactly six months later the two teams completed the trade. 

The Red Sox acquired minor-league right-handed pitcher Victor Santos. The 21-year-old will report to Double-A affiliate Portland. 

Over the course of his career, Santos has appeared in 63 minor league games (38 starts) in the Phillies organization, going 18-15 with one save and a 3.22 ERA. 

Santos’ last outing came against the Portland SeaDogs. He yielded four runs on six hits with one walk. 

The Red Sox acquisition of Santos gives the organization another viable young arm in the system. According to Christopher Smith of MassLive, Santos has “impressive control”. 

Chatham was designated for assignment back on January 18 after the Red Sox acquired Adam Ottavino from the Yankees. Boston would then place Ottavino on their 40-man roster. 

Chatham is hitting .269 with eight home runs and 18 RBIs in 20 games for the Triple-A Lehigh Valley IronPigs.

Santos is the fourth player to be named later by the Red Sox this season.
