  • Red Sox's Ceddanne Rafaela: Getting start at shortstop

    Rafaela will start at shortstop and bat ninth in Monday's game against the Guardians.

    Red Sox manager Alex Cora has been adamant that the plan is to keep Rafaela in center field even after Trevor Story's season-ending shoulder injury. However, the skipper said Monday that Wilyer Abreu will become an everyday player versus righties moving forward, per Rob Bradford of, which would seem to point to more regular action for Rafaela at shortstop. Monday's start at shortstop is the 23-year-old's first at the position this season.

  • Red Sox's Ceddanne Rafaela: Agrees to contract extension

    Rafaela agreed to terms on an eight-year contract extension with the Red Sox on Monday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Mark Feinsand of relays that the deal is for eight years and $50 million, which would buy out the 23-year-old arbitration years and first two years of free agency. Rafaela is the second young player the Red Sox have locked up on a long-term contract after they inked Brayan Bello during spring training. Rafaela has hit only .239/.282/.389 over his first 38 major-league games, but he's displayed elite defense in center field, and Boston is optimistic his bat will eventually come around.

  • Red Sox's Ceddanne Rafaela: Set for middle infield reps

    Red Sox manager Alex Cora said Tuesday that Rafaela will see some playing time at second base and shortstop going forward, Jen McCaffrey of The Athleticreports.

    Cora recently downplayed the possibility of the 23-year-old playing shortstop in the immediate aftermath of Trevor Story's shoulder injury, but the skipper has apparently changed his mind. Rafaela should still see most of his playing time in center field, but it's possible he gains eligibility at shortstop or second base if Boston's middle infield continues to have issues with injuries and ineffectiveness.

  • Red Sox's Ceddanne Rafaela: Two hits off bench

    Rafaela went 2-for-3 with a triple, two RBI and a run scored in Sunday's 12-2 win over the Angels.

    Rafaela started the game on the bench, giving him a chance to reset amid a rough start. The outfielder entered the game slashing .185/.250/.296, while chasing pitches outside the zone at a rate of 47 percent. "His timing's off," manager Alex Cora told Alex Speier of The Boston Globe. "Late on the fastballs, early on the offspeed pitches. Like the great Carlos Delgado used to say, 'You're in a bad spot if that happens.' We'll work on it, but it's just part of the growing pains." Rafaela entered the blowout as a pinch hitter for Wilyer Abreu and put together some of his best swings of the season, including an opposite-field triple off the fence.

  • Red Sox's Ceddanne Rafaela: Out of Sunday's lineup

    Rafaela is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Angels, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Rafaela is 1-for-15 across the past five games and will receive a breather for Sunday's series finale in Anaheim. The 23-year-old is expected to continue operating as Boston's primary center field despite the injury to shortstop Trevor Story (shoulder). Jarren Duran is manning center field Sunday while Wilyer Abreu picks up a start in right.

  • Red Sox's Ceddanne Rafaela: Not expected to play shortstop

    Red Sox manager Alex Cora on Saturday downplayed the possibility of using Rafaela at shortstop following the injury to Trevor Story (shoulder), Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

    Rafaela is an excellent defensive shortstop, but he's also a gifted defender in center field and Boston intends to keep him there. Cora's stance would also seem to indicate that Rafaela has a good amount of leash in center field even if his bat is slow to come around. The 23-year-old entered play Saturday having gone just 5-for-25 with three RBI and one stolen base.
