Triston Casas has quickly made his presence felt in Worcester.
In just his second game at the Triple-A level, Casas homered and drove in two runs against the Rochester Red Wings. You can watch his home run below, via the MLB Pipeline Twitter account.

Casas showed off his smooth swing and impressive raw power as he took a 3-2 fastball to the opposite field. The first baseman went 1-for-4 and also struck out twice, so it wasn’t a perfect night. But the WooSox came out of it with a 4-3 win, so they’ll take it.
The No. 1 or 2 prospect in the Red Sox system, depending on where you rank shortstop Marcelo Mayer, Casas is the Red Sox’ closest thing to a prospect that should imminently make an impact in the major leagues.
