Place promoted to Portland


After posting a .252/.328/.391 line with 24 doubles, 3 triples, and 4 home runs so far this year for High-A Salem, outfielder Jason Place has been promoted to Double-A Portland, this according to Kevin Thomas of the Portland Press Herald. A first-round draft choice by the Red Sox in 2006, Place will replace injured outfielder Matt Sheely on the Portland roster. The 21-year-old Place received a $1.3 million signing bonus after signing with the Red Sox as a five-tool talent out of Wren High School in South Carolina. In his three plus seasons in the organization, he has so far put up .240/.320/.399 numbers with 75 doubles, 12 triples, and 39 home runs in 1358 at-bats, drawing 147 walks times while striking out 427 times. He is currently the fortieth-ranked prospect in the Red Sox system according to SoxProspects.com.
