The cradle of the game.
For those not int he know, ever since the pandemic, and the Red Sox put him straight into AAA after that lost 2020 season, despite little AA experience, Downs has been horrific offensively.

Is it because the Sox mismanaged him? Gap year in pandemic really hurt him? Or is he just simply a bust? Mix of any of those? UP to the Red Sox to answer.
Yeah, kinda surprised Sox did't hit the reset button and send him down to AA to start this season. Short stint, but he absolutely raked at that level in '19.

Had to look up Jerry Downs, who is now playing in the Atlantic League. Sent me down a rabbit hole and just found out that Rusney Castillo, Deven Marrero and Sam Travis all play for the Long Island Ducks.
