The 22-year-old prospect who could be the next pitching jewel of the Red Sox

The left hander is turning heads this Spring with the Red Sox

Currently, the Boston Red Sox have very little to worry about their pitching rotation, as it is one of the best of all major leagues. However, we must always look to the future, and this 22-year-old pticher seems to be the next great ace of the World Series champions.

His name is Darwinzon Hernandez, a Venezuelan southpaw from Ciudad Bolívar, who has surprised everyone with his excellent Spring Training by throwing 4 tickets so far without a race, allowing 3 hits, negotiating 3 tickets and prescribing 6 strikeouts this preseason.Ian Browne de MLB.com habló con Chris Sale sobre el potencial de Hernández:

I know a lot of people talk about him as a possible pitcher for the bullpen, but he's a big guy, with a huge body, so I'd like to see what he can do as a starter and see how he evolves

In 2018, Hernandez had a good season in the minor leagues, with a record of 9 wins and 5 losses between Class A and Double A, with a 3.53 ERA in 107 innings pitched and 134 strikeouts. In addition, Darwinzon is the No. 4 prospect of the Red Sox organization.
