The First Rafael Devers Column

The latest member of the Boston Red Sox got the call yesterday and will be playing third base tonight. Shank does the write-up:
SEATTLE — Rafael Devers is the Next Big Thing in Red Sox Nation.

Devers is only 20. He played only 86 games above the A-ball level and now he’s in the majors. Devers did not play in the Red Sox’ 4-0 loss to the Mariners on Monday night, although he was available for pinch-hitting duties. He is expected to make his first big league appearance Tuesday against Seattle’s Felix Hernandez.

Welcome to the big leagues, kid.
No cheap baseball clich├ęs here!

Shank will now devote a magnum opus after Devers homered in his first at-bat.

I believe the last honkie on the red sox that was a target of the media was Clemens.

Since he left it's been Mo, Pedro, Manny, Papi, Hanley/Xander - Devers is next.

Weird huh?
