Either way, I think he's going to be someone special for the Sox. Just watching Mitchell run the bases is cool because the kid has some impressive speed.
You sure about that? I saw him playing RF.

You are correct that Mitchell's speed is impressive.

Sounds great. Looks like he's headed to Kanny (listed on the roster). Go get 'em Jared.

Time will tell, but if he makes the bigs and plays well, we have an All-Star.

JB98: My bad. One of these days I'll figure out which is center field and which is right field.

I know in some games earlier this season, Mitchell was playing left.

Either way, I like the kid a lot.

J-Mitch can play all 3 OF positions.
We used him in RF, because that's where we needed him.

We had 2 other guys that could play CF, neither of whom were better than Mitchell in RF.
And our LF was actually our 2B before we shuffled the infield a bit.

He still takes some bad routes to the ball, but his speed is usually enough to compensate.

Only other problem, is that he sometimes has too much confidence in his wheels. So he'll lay out with full extension after a ball that he'd be better off one hopping.
Sometimes he'll make that play, but others the ball gets past him allowing the hitter at least 1 extra base and sometimes more.

These things can and probably will be fixed.

Good to have someone else on here from the BTR.

Well that didn't take too long... Can't find anything about it, anyone know what the deal is?

P.S., he's going to need to pick a new number eventually.

Maybe the Sox are doing this for now before the ASB to make room on the roster? Idk if they plan on adding guys to the Kanny roster or moving someone up to make room for Jared and are just waiting until after the ASB to make their decision.

Or he's actually hurt?
