Utility man Deven Marrero is currently an everyday player for the Boston Red Sox.

Time at ASU

2010: Played in 42 games (started 37). Set an ASU freshman record with .397 batting average (led team). Hit six home runs, 42 RBIs, and stole 11 bases.

2011: Was named Pac-10 Defensive Player of the Year and was named First Team All-Pac-10. Hit two home runs, belted 20 RBIs, and started 54 games at shortstop.

2012: First Team Pac-12 All-Conference. Started 54 of 56 games at shortstop. Hit .284 with four home runs and 33 RBIs on 62 hits.

Time in the Pros

Marrero has not found the most offensive success with the Red Sox. His current batting average is .171 with 76 plate appearances. The good news, however, this season he’s set a career-high in plate appearances.

In 2015, his rookie season, he only had 53 plate appearances but also hit a .226 throughout those 53 at-bats.

Last season was a slow year for Marrero. He only had 12 at-bats and hit .083 in 2016.

Since 2015, he has four career home runs, three of those coming this year. He has often batted ninth in the lineup this season.

Even though he may have offensive struggles, he still runs the show at third base.
