Players of the Week, 6/30-7/6: Trey Ball & Rafael Devers

Trey Ball, SP, Greenville Drive - 2 G, 10.0 IP, 0-0, 0.90 ERA, 6 H, 5 R, 1 ER, 2 BB/11 K, 0.80 WHIP, 9.90 K/9, 4.33 G/F, .154 BAA, .400 OPSA

July seems to agree with Trey Ball thus far, as the young left-hander turned in a pair of his finest performances this season. Ball worked five innings of one-hit, shutout ball against Asheville (COL) July 1, striking out three and walking none while not factoring in the decision. In his second start of the period, July 6 at Augusta (SFG) a leaky defense let Ball down, allowing five runs but only one earned on five hits and two walks, highlighted by an impressive eight strikeouts in five innings of work. He is currently the seventeenth-ranked prospect in the organization by SoxProspects.com.

Season Line: 13 G, 53.1 IP, 1-7, 6.08 ERA, 77 H, 36 ER, 19 BB/40 K, .333 BAA

Rafael Devers, 3B, GCL Red Sox/DSL Red Sox - 5 G, 15 AB, 19 PA, 8 H, 2 2B, 1 3B, 5 R, 4 RBI, 4 BB/3 K, 2 SB (0 CS), .533/.632/.800
Devers continued to display a flair for the dramatic by hitting his way out of the DSL and making his stateside debut on Independence Day. He marked the occasion with some fireworks of his own, going 4 for 4 with a double, triple and a walk, while knocking in three runs. He followed up that performance by going 2 for 4 with a double the next day to end the period. This is Devers' second SoxProspects.com Player of the Week award of the season, having previously won for the period of June 2-8. He is currently the eleventh-ranked prospect in the organization by SoxProspects.com.
Season Line: .373/.472/.619 (44-for-118) 4 HR, 9 2B, 2 3B, 29 R, 28 RBI, 23 BB/22 K, 32 G
