Red Sox shortstop prospect Deven Marrero, amidst a strong season in Double-A that suggested considerable offensive progress from a year ago, was promoted from Portland to Triple-A Pawtucket on Wednesday. Marrero, 23, is hitting .287 with a .368 OBP, .429 slugging mark, five homers and 26 extra-base hits in 68 games, representing statistical improvement by every hitting measure over his first full pro season, in which the 2012 first-rounder hit .252/.338/.317 with two homers and 22 extra-base hits in 104 games between High-A and Double-A.

He projects as a first division major league starting shortstop.
