Imagine if the Red Sox are still contending in the late Summer and Sale comes back, healthy, well rested, and potentially better than he has been over the last few years. Also by that time Jeter Downs and Jarren Duran will be up and tearing things up...

Some late-game reading... Chaim Bloom shed some light on Jarren Duran on Tuesday afternoon, repeatedly saying that Duran's performance will dictate when he's called up. Reading between the lines, it could be a while.
Here is the first ever lineup in Worcester Red Sox history, and in just over an hour Jarren Duran will step up to the plate for the first ever at-bat in @WooSox history.
You can listen on @100FMthePIKE OR watch on @MiLB TV. https://t.co/1kAXUHNT6k
@BravesAshland Jarren Duran for the Red Sox. Has great speed and added more power to his swing this winter. Been getting (healthy) Ellsbury comps which has me very excited to see him in action with the big club.
Other Triple-A assignments via @MLBPipeline:
Boston: Jeter Downs, Jarren Duran, Tanner Houck & Connor Seabold
Cleveland: Nolan Jones, Gabriel Arias, Owen Miller, Bobby Bradley, Daniel Johnson & Joey Cantillo 👀

Let's go into the future. Five years down the road:
Projecting Boston Red Sox 2026 roster: Jarren Duran, Triston Casas, Jeter Downs, Alex Verdugo, Bobby Dalbec, Rafael Devers all in same lineup? https://t.co/WXbwERn1im
Jarren Duran is getting some reps in left field and right field at the alternate site in Worcester. It's not an accident.
Cora: "It’s something that he needs to do to keep getting better and keep the options open."
Red Sox OF Jarren Duran just hit his second HR of the day. 1-2 FB down that he golfed to straight away CF for a 3-run HR. His power is legit. In this two game look, Duran looks very comfortable w/FB down, but has struggled when they are elevated. Something to watch going forward.
Jarren Duran gets Worcester on the board with a long home run to RCF. He’s been very aggressive attacking early in the count in these two games I’ve watched. This time, he took the first pitch and then got a fastball middle/down he could handle from Jordan Yamamoto and crushed it
You know about Jarren Duran, Triston Casas and Jeter Downs, but what about Brainer Bonaci, Miguel Bleis and Jacob Wallace?

The Red Sox announced their Alternate Training Site roster today. Michael Chavis, Jeter Downs, Jarren Duran, Connor Seabold and Eduard Bazardo are among the players there. Full roster below: https://t.co/IpA6xvL7Zc
largely unrelated but Red Sox go 79-83 (could see them anywhere 75-85 wins honestly) and are irrelevant most of the year as well as sellers at the deadline. Jarren Duran comes up and plays well though.
Jarren Duran's final spring line...
.340/.367/.702, 10 XBH, 3 HR, 2 SB
But also 2/19 BB/K.
Very excited to see his 2020 ATS power gains stick this spring.
With the Red Sox shaky OF, Duran could debut before the ASB & has the skills to make an impact in 2021.
Jarren Duran. Red Sox #5 prospect.
Low hands in his stance, gets foot up & down, which allows him to turn on inside pitches like he did on Soroka’s fastball. Has plus plus speed & could become a power-speed threat in the majors.
Late 2021/early 2022 ETA. https://t.co/mvRR38GvoP
Jarren Duran's final spring line: .340/.367/.702. No surprise, but when talking to scouts about who has impressed for the Red Sox, he is one of the first names that comes up. The work he put in w/his swing & in the weight room has really paid off & translated on field this spring
A sprinkle on Red Sox to win AL East at 20/1
I’m not saying I love this Sox team but I definitely don’t think they should be 20/1
Jarren Duran could end up being the real deal. NYY has pitching issues & Rays are relying on a number of unproven players. 20/1 too good to pass on.
