Welcome to The Show, Jarren Duran.
The Boston Red Sox prospect earned the first hit of his MLB career in his first at-bat Saturday against Gerrit Cole and the New York Yankees. In the first inning of Monday's series opener vs. the Toronto Blue Jays, he took right-hander Ross Stripling deep to the opposite field for his first home run.
Another moment the 24-year-old won't ever forget.
Prior to Monday's game, Duran was moved up to the No. 2 spot in the Red Sox' lineup as part of a reshuffling of the order by manager Alex Cora. It didn't take long for that decision to pay off.
Duran clubbed 15 homers in 46 games for Triple-A Worcester before being called up to the majors.
