Red Sox’ѕ No. 3 рroѕрeсt ѕteаlѕ 6 bаѕeѕ іn one gаme, а Portlаnd reсord

Red Sox prospect Ceddanne Rafaela stole six bases in Double-A Portland’s 6-2 loss to Somerset on Saturday. It was a single-game Portland record. Jeremy Hazelbacker held the previous record (4 steals, July 22, 2012).

The initial scoring had Rafaela for seven steals in the game. But one was changed to a defensive indifference.

His previous high was three stolen bases in a game for Low-A Salem on May 8, 2021.

The 22-year-old has 16 steals this season, tied for third in the Red Sox system with Max Ferguson. David Hamilton and Greg Allen lead the system with 21 each.

Rafaela reached base four times. He went 2-for-3 with two walks and two runs.

Baseball America ranks him the No. 3 prospect in the Red Sox system behind Marcelo Mayer and Triston Casas.

Hamilton — who is the fastest prospect in Boston’s organization and set the Portland single-season record with 70 steals last year — stole six bases in a game in 2021 when he played in the Brewers system. He has never stolen more than three bases in a game in the Red Sox system.

Speedster Jarren Duran had a career-best three steals in a game for Worcester last Sept. 23.

Rafaela led the Red Sox minor league system with 63 extra-base hits in 2022 while playing for High-A Greenville and Portland. This year, he’s slashing only .248/.286/.336/.622 with one homer and seven doubles in 27 games for the Sea Dogs.

Rodriguez pitched 1.1 innings

Lefty reliever Joely Rodriguez (right oblique strain) pitched 1 ⅓ innings in a rehab outing for Portland on Saturday.

He allowed a run on a solo homer. He gave up just one hit and no walks while striking out two. He’s expected to be activated for the Seattle series, which begins Monday at Fenway Park.
