SEATTLE — It was quite a week for 20-year-old Red Sox rookie Rafael Devers. He made his first six-hour flight, got his first $60 haircut (clubhouse barber), and hit his first major league home run in a much-needed, 4-0 Red Sox victory (thank you, Chris Sale) over the Mariners Wednesday.Tony C. and Fred Lynn are also mentioned; I'm sure that's just a coincidence.
So what’s the reward?
No one knows. Devers went 2 for 4 in his second career game, but might be headed right back to the minors before the reeling Red Sox come home for David Price’s return party at Fenway Friday night.

Red Sox rookie Rafael Devers smacks a home run in his second game in the major leagues, and Shank devotes a column to it.
