  • Red Sox's Marcelo Mayer: Breaks through at Double-A

    Mayer went 3-for-4 with a double, two RBI and a run scored for Double-A Portland on Sunday.

    Mayer can let out a big sigh of relief, as he connected for his first hits against Double-A pitching. After he was promoted from High-A Greenville last week, Boston's top prospect was hitless in his first 16 at-bats for the Sea Dogs. If the common-held belief that making the jump from High-A to Double-A is the most difficult, it may be more challenging for a 20-year-old like Mayer.

    Mayer is on a tear for the month of May in the South Atlantic League, going 16-for-31 with nine extra-base hits, 12 RBI and eight runs scored while leading all Sally League hitters in OPS (1.516).

  • Red Sox's Marcelo Mayer: Gets timing down

    Mayer went 3-for-5 with a home run and four RBI in Saturday's game for High-A Greenville.

    Mayer had scuffled out of the gate with just two hits over his first 20 at-bats before breaking out Saturday. He told Brendan Samson of MLB.com that he'd been late on swings early in the season but got his timing down Saturday. "I just made sure today that I got my foot down early, started a little earlier and got a good pitch to hit and I was able to do that today," Mayer said. The 20-year-old shortstop prospect slashed .280/.399/.489 with 13 home runs and 17 steals over 91 combined games between Single-A Salem and Greenville in 2022.

  • Red Sox's Marcelo Mayer: Ends High-A season hot

    Mayer finished the season at High-A Greenville by going 14-for-31 (.452) with a homer, a steal and a 7:7 BB:K through his final eight games. Overall, he batted .265/.379/.449 with four homers in 25 games following his promotion.

    Mayer put together a strong first full pro season between Greenville and Single-A Salem, compiling 13 homers and 17 steals with an .887 OPS across 91 contests. Still just 19 years old, the 2021 draft's No. 4 pick has the look of a future franchise shortstop for Boston, but he's still at least a couple years from the big leagues.

  • Red Sox's Marcelo Mayer: Headed to High-A

    Red Sox farm director Brian Abraham confirmed Monday that Mayer has been promoted from Single-A Salem to High-A Greenville, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.

    Boston will be moving two of its top selections from the 2020 and 2021 draft classes to Greenville, as power-hitting third baseman Blaze Jordan will also be making the jump from Salem. Mayer, a 19-year-old shortstop who was the No. 4 overall selection in 2021, received the promotion after slashing .286/.406/.504 with nine home runs and 16 stolen bases to go with a 16.8 percent walk rate across 308 plate appearances for Salem.

  • Red Sox's Marcelo Mayer: Overcomes back injury

    Mayer (back) went 3-for-5 with a home run, two walks and a stolen base in two games for Single-A Salem since he exited Sunday's game against Delmarva.

    Mayer only missed one contest on account of low-back tightness and hasn't missed a beat upon returning to action. For the season, the 19-year-old shortstop is slashing .294/.390/.528 with eight home runs and 13 stolen bases in 231 plate appearances for Salem.

  • Red Sox's Marcelo Mayer: Dealing with low-back tightness

    Mayer was removed from the first game of a doubleheader at Single-A Salem due to low-back tightness, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports.

    Mayer isn't in the lineup for the second game of Sunday's twin bill, but the team is calling his removal from the matinee a precautionary measure. The 19-year-old should tentatively be considered day-to-day.

  • Red Sox's Marcelo Mayer: Returns from IL

    Mayer (wrist) returned from the injured list and went 1-for-3 with a walk, a double, an RBI and a run scored for Single-A Salem on Monday.

    Mayer had undergone testing for a sprained wrist and was found to have no significant damage. Monday's game was his first action since May 19. Mayer is slashing .333/.391/.513 over 87 plate appearance (18 games) for Salem.

  • Red Sox's Marcelo Mayer: Placed on injured list

    Mayer (wrist) was placed on the 7-day minor-league injured list Sunday, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.

    Mayer dealt with a wrist injury for several weeks in late April and early May, but he recently returned to the field and went 6-for-18 with four doubles, three RBI and a stolen base. The 19-year-old's injury hasn't increased in severity, but he'll land on the IL and undergo further testing since the issue hasn't gone away. It's not yet clear when Mayer will be able to return to game action.

  • Red Sox's Marcelo Mayer: Returns with three doubles

    Mayer (wrist) started at shortstop and went 3-for-6 with three doubles and two RBI on Sunday in Single-A Salem's 8-7 loss to Delmarva.

    Mayer missed approximately two-and-a-half weeks when his sore right wrist first cropped up in late April, but his latest aggravation of the injury didn't cause nearly as long of an absence. He was out of the lineup for four days before returning to action Sunday and providing a season-high three extra-base hits. Assuming he experienced no setbacks coming out of Sunday's contest, Mayer should be capable of handling an everyday role at Salem moving forward.
