Red Sox's Triston Casas: In line for first base job
Casas (knee) is poised to be the Red Sox' regular first baseman after Eric Hosmer was designated for assignment Friday, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports.
There's a good chance Casas was ultimately going to be the preferred option over Hosmer anyway, but with the veteran gone the situation is that much clearer. Casas flashed his upside in a short stint with Boston in 2022, hitting just .197 but collecting 19 walks and five home runs over 95 plate appearances. The youngster injured his knee in October during winter ball but should be 100 percent for spring training.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Triston Casas: Won't return to winter ball
Casas' knee injury will prevent him from returning to play for Tigres del Licey in the Dominican winter league, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.
Casas had only played three games for the Tigres before developing knee soreness in mid-October. The Red Sox are reportedly unconcerned about long-term issues but didn't want him risking anything in winter ball. He was down in the Dominican to make up for lost development time after missing nearly two months with a high ankle sprain. Casas is expected to head into 2023 as the Red Sox's primary first baseman or designated hitter without the benefit of those extra at-batas.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Triston Casas: Managing sore knee
Casas is dealing with knee soreness but could be back in the lineup for Tigres del Licey in the Dominican League on Friday.
The 22-year-old received an MRI which showed no structural damage, so he may be able to retake the field after a couple days of rest. Casas made his big-league debut for Boston this year and had a .197/.358/.408 slash line with five home runs and 12 RBI in 27 games, and any injury is likely to be treated with caution since he's the organization's top prospect....

Casas went 1-for-2 with three walks, a home run and three RBI in Saturday's 7-5 loss to the Yankees.

The Red Sox aren't worried and are confident Casas will hit in the majors.... See More ... See Less

Casas went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's 8-4 loss to Tampa Bay.
Casas swatted his first of what's expected to be many home runs in the majors. With both Franchy Cordero (ankle) and Eric Hosmer (back) sidelined and unlikely to play again in 2022, the Red Sox will give Casas plenty of at-bats over the final weeks of the season in preparation for what should be a full-time gig in 2023....
