    Ranked #296 in Baseball America's Top 500 he signed with the Red Sox instead of heading off to LSU. Paul Mainieri (LSU Head Coach) gave him a 95% of heading off to college, unless the Red Sox picked him. Longhi who was born in Massachussets, grew up a Red Sox fan.

    Played on my brothers HS team and I've seen him play 100 times! Stud hitter, no doubt. As mentioned, though, his future position will be his biggest question mark

    This just in...
     
     
    Crap.
     
    Regarding his positions, he'd played both OF corners this season along, and in RF over his last 7 games in the field. Also played 2 G at 1B.

    Crap, this isn't good. Supposedly he replied to someone with: "ligament detached from the bone in my thumb and pulled a piece of the bone off with it…". Hopefully he can get better and have another strong year in 2015.

    Longhi has since deleted all tweets referencing the injury, presumably at the behest of the Sox front office. Can't have any info floating around out there that might damage the potential trade value of damaged goods, after all.

    It's been a month since his thumb surgery, and while his recovery is reportedly going just fine he isn't quite able to lift a liquid-filled 10-gallon cooler over his head. So today his Spinners teammates went to great heights to help him complete the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

    He struggled to start the year but since the beginning of May he is slashing .285/.348/.417 in 159 PA. In the month of June, including his 1/2 today, he is slashing .288/.345/.547 in 59 PA with 8 doubles, 2 HRs. It's easy to overlook he is still 21 years old and in AA. Even more so since he got off to a terrible start. If he develops any type of power, he could actually be a decent prospect.

    April .182/.194/.288 67 PA, 1 double, 2 HR
    May .290/.353/.376 102 PA, 5 double, 1 HR
    June .288/.345/.547 59 PA, 8 doubles 2 HR

    I know I just updated this one but he had another HR the other day.

    Since May 1st, his line is now .297/.355/.462 on a .336 BAbip. 173 PA, 12bb/26k, 14 doubles, 4 HRs.
    His last 14 games and 60 PA: .352/.407/.685 with a .356 BAbip. 4bb/6k, 3 HRs, 9 doubles.

    Again, he doesn't turn 22 until August. While he wasn't special last year, he did have 40 doubles, 3 triples and 2 HRs last year as a 20 year old in 535 PA. The 40 doubles suggests he could grow into some HR power and given he's hit 3 HRs in the last 11 games and is only one short of his career high in 249 less PA, it might have started to happen.

    Traded to the Reds for International signing pool space, per the Red Sox official twitter.
