BOSTON, MA - The Boston Red Sox today recalled infielder Deven Marrero from Triple-A Pawtucket. Marrero will be active for today's game against the Philadelphia Phillies at Fenway Park beginning at 4:05 p.m.
President of Baseball Operations Dave Dombrowski made the announcement.
For Marrero, 25, this is his third career major league stint, all this season. In six games with Boston, the right-hander is 1-for-7 with a run scored while making three appearances (one start) at second base, one at shortstop, and one as a pinch runner. For Pawtucket this year, Marrero was hitting .256 (96-for-375) with 13 doubles, one triple, six home runs, and 29 RBI in 102 games, including a .306 average (33-for-108) in his last 26 games dating back to August 6. Defensively, he has appeared in 90 minor league games this year at shortstop, eight at second base, and three at third base. Signed by the Red Sox as a first-round selection (24th overall) in the 2012 June Draft, the Florida native has hit .258 (381-for-1,479) with 77 doubles, six triples, 16 home runs, and 138 RBI in 388 career minor league games over the last four seasons (2012-15).
With this move, Boston's active major league roster is now at 28.
