“Who is he” question asked as 20 year old red sox gifted star comes out of nowhere and hist an unbelievable record.

Who’s this Red Sox prospect who came out of nowhere to land on a Top 10?

Jedixson Paez, a 20-year-old minor league pitcher for the Red Sox, is a relatively unknown prospect with scant web information. Baseball America does not have him in the Top 30 prospects in Boston and does not have a scouting report on him. Additionally, MLB Pipeline’s Red Sox Top 30 list does not include the righty.

However, on July 2, Fangraphs released a Top 47 Red Sox prospect ranking, and he found himself as Boston’s No. 8 prospect.

The Venezuelan pitcher is 3-1 in 13 appearances (six starts) between Low-A Salem and High-A Greenville, with a 2.67 ERA, 1.08 WHIP, 72 strikeouts, and just seven walks. Just 1.1 walks and 11.3 strikeouts per nine innings are his averages. On May 29, he was promoted to High A.

Red Sox assistant general manager Eddie Romero said of him, “He’s always had this incredible poise and just an advanced feel.” “That’s always been the case: pure off-the-charts talent or strike throwing skill at tremendous velocities. But he has amazing pitchability. The velo has now increased to the low nineties. Excellent feel for a ball that breaks. He can command and direct a four- or five-pitch mix with great ease. And that has been rather what has fueled his achievement.
