Player Outlook
In large part due to working with Dustin Pedroia in the spring, Jarren Duran displayed a positive change in attitude, not to mention a reworked swing. Even so, Duran opened the season with Triple-A Worcester before being called up in early April to add outfield depth following the wrist injury to Adam Duvall. Duran turned out to be more than depth as he became the regular center fielder, demonstrating much more hustle. Unfortunately, Duran was limited to only 102 games as he missed almost a quarter of the season after season-ending surgery on his left big toe. The league had begun to adjust, so the lost time makes it harder to evaluate the extent of Duran's break out. Through July 23, he batted .317/.367/.514, but afterwards, he posted a .219/.269/.370 line. Duran is expected to be ready for spring training and should be a regular in the outfield. There is no doubting his stolen base prowess, but his power and ability to get on base are unclear. He'll probably land closer to the early version, but don't expect a repeat of his pre-All-Star break production.

  • Red Sox's Jarren Duran: Steals home, goes yard

    Duran went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a steal of home plate during Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Rays. The Red Sox executed a first-and-third double steal perfectly in the eighth inning, as the throw to second to catch Rafael Devers stealing was cut off early and the subsequent throw to home wasn't in time to tag the speedy Duran. Duran has hit safely in seven straight games, batting 10-for-27 (.370) with a pair of triples, solo home runs and stolen bases during that stretch.

  • Red Sox's Jarren Duran: Notches three extra-base hits

    Duran went 3-for-5 with two doubles, a solo home run and an additional run scored during Thursday's 7-5 loss to the Rays. Duran provided plenty of pop from the leadoff position Thursday, swatting his second homer of 2024 and generating two doubles for a second straight game. The contest was Duran's fourth game with at least three hits this season. The center fielder finished the four-game series against Tampa Bay 6-for-15 (.400) with three runs scored and five extra-base hits.

  • Red Sox's Jarren Duran: Running less

    Duran has attempted five steals over the last 35 games, after he opened the season with six steals in the first six games. There are a few factors that explain the drop in attempts, per Alex Speier of The Boston Globe. Opposing teams became aware of Duran's potential impact, and the Red Sox have been more judicious after running into several outs early in the season. Additionally, manager Alex Cora asked Duran to run less given that he plays every day.

  • Red Sox's Jarren Duran: Logs two hits in loss

    Duran went 2-for-5 with a double and a triple in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to Atlanta. Duran's line Tuesday was similar to his previous game Sunday, when he logged a double and triple in a win over the Twins, only he didn't score against Atlanta. That's partially due to Boston's woeful 1-for-14 performance with runners in scoring position (13 LOB). Duran's done a good job of not letting any slumps linger -- the bane of his first two seasons in the majors -- and is batting .267/.339/.420 over 168 plate appearances. Tuesday's triple, his sixth, vaulted him to the top of MLB.

  • Red Sox's Jarren Duran: Triple, stolen base vs. Guardians

    Duran went 1-for-4 with a two-run triple, two runs scored and a stolen base in Thursday's 5-4 loss to Cleveland. Duran drew a walk to lead off the home half of the first inning before swiping his seventh bag of the year. The speedy outfielder would then drive in a pair of runs with a triple in the sixth inning, his first three-bagger this season. Duran is now 5-for-17 with three extra-base hits in his last four contests. He's off to a nice start following a promising 2023 campaign, slashing .301/.366/.422 with a home run, 12 runs scored and nine RBI through his first 20 games.

  • Red Sox's Jarren Duran: Four hits in win

    Duran went 4-for-4 in Wednesday's 1-0 win over the Athletics. Duran's posted three consecutive multi-hit games following a 2-for-16 start to the season. It's a hopeful sign for the outfielder, who earlier in his career let the pressure of slumps and mistakes get the better of him. That began to change in 2023 when he posted an .886 OPS over the first half of the season before an August injury ended his season. A mentally sound Duran could be a difference maker atop Boston's lineup. While his .500 BABIP is unsustainable, the outfielder is 11-for-28 (.393) with six steals through seven games.

  • Red Sox's Jarren Duran: Collects three hits, three pilfers

    Duran went 3-for-5 with two runs scored, a run batted in and three stolen bases during Monday's game against the Athletics. Duran ran wild Monday, pushing himself to a league-leading five steals on the season. He swiped second base after each of his three singles but also advanced to third via error on two of those occasions. The multi-hit outing was much-needed for the speedster after opening the season 2-for-16 (.125)

  • Red Sox's Jarren Duran: Swipes bag in loss

    Duran started in left field and went 0-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base in Friday's 1-0 loss to Seattle. Duran, who led Boston with 24 steals in 2023, stole his second bag in as many games. He brings an element of speed to the top of the order; the speedy Duran's batted leadoff in the first two games of the season. With Ceddanne Rafaela making the team as Boston's primary center fielder, Duran has been moved to left field.

  • Red Sox's Jarren Duran: Starts in right field

    Duran started in right field and went 3-for-4 with a home run, a double, four RBI and an additional run scored in Friday's spring game against the Twins. Duran has made starts in left field (two), center field (five) and now right field. Tyler O'Neill was originally scheduled to start in right but was scratched with left calf tightness. Duran could move around the outfield a lot this year if Ceddanne Rafaela, who started in center field Friday, earns a roster spot.

  • Red Sox's Jarren Duran: Back in action

    Duran (ankle) will start in center field and lead off in Thursday's Grapefruit League game against Atlanta. As expected, Duran will return after a brief injury scare. He was seen flexing his left foot Tuesday -- the same foot he had surgery on last August -- but it seems he's already put the issue behind him. If healthy, Duran will serve as Boston's primary leadoff man against both righties and lefties.

  • Red Sox's Jarren Duran: Making spring debut Friday

    Duran (toe) is starting in left field and batting leadoff in Friday's Grapefruit League game against the Twins, Mac Cerullo of the Boston Herald reports. Manager Alex Cora previously said the 27-year-old would serve as the DH in his spring debut, but he'll instead man left field. Duran had a delayed start to spring training while completing his recovery from August toe surgery, but he has plenty of time to ramp up his workload before Opening Day.

  • Red Sox's Jarren Duran: Will be Boston's leadoff hitter

    Red Sox manager Alex Cora said Friday that Duran will be the team's leadoff hitter this season, Gabrielle Starr of the Boston Herald reports. Cora did add that there will be matchups to consider when mulling the leadoff decision, but Duran will be at the top of the order most days against both righties and lefties. The left-handed hitting Duran slashed .296/.349/.491 versus right-handers in 2023 and held his own against lefties with a .289/.327/.422 line, albeit with a 30.6 percent strikeout rate. Duran's 2023 season ended prematurely following surgery in late August to repair the flexor tendon in his left big toe, but he's not under any restrictions this spring. He is competing with Ceddanne Rafaela for the center field job but would presumably slide over to right field if Rafaela plays center.

  • Red Sox's Jarren Duran: Begins weight-bearing exercises

    Red Sox chief baseball officer Craig Breslow said Wednesday that Duran (toe) has begun weight-bearing exercises, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports. Duran is more than two months removed from Aug. 30 surgery to repair the flexor tendon in his left big toe and should be fully recovered well before the beginning of spring training in February. The 27-year-old center fielder enjoyed a mini breakout with the Red Sox in 2023, slashing .295/.346/.482 with eight homers and 24 steals across 102 games.

  • Red Sox's Jarren Duran: Officially lands on IL

    Duran was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with a left toe sprain, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports. We already knew this move was likely, and now it's official. Adam Duvall should get the bulk of the starts in center field while Duran is sidelined, and prospect Wilyer Abreu, who was recalled in a corresponding move, could also get some work in the short term.

  • Red Sox's Jarren Duran: IL stint not ruled out

    Duran (toe) could still be placed on the injured list, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports. There is reason for optimism regarding Duran's status, as there are no X-rays scheduled on his injured toe and he did not visit a doctor after his early exit from Sunday's game. However, he is not starting Monday, and manager Alex Cora said the team wants to see how Duran feels Tuesday before deciding on his next step.

  • Red Sox's Jarren Duran: Dealing with toe injury

    Duran was removed from Sunday's win over the Yankees with a left toe contusion, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports. Duran went 1-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base before being lifted from Sunday's contest with the injury. It doesn't appear to be a serious issue, so the 26-year-old should be considered day-to-day until more information is available.

  • Red Sox's Jarren Duran: Slumping, dropped in order

    Duran batted seventh and went 0-for-4 in Friday's 8-3 win over the Yankees. Duran has hit the skids of late, going 3-for-32 (.094) over the last 12 games. The slump appears to have cost him the leadoff role against right-handers, as Alex Verdugo led off for the third consecutive game against a righty starter. Red Sox manager Alex Cora told Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com that he's spoken with Duran, who recently posted two Instagram stories that seemed to reference recurring struggles. One of those stories was captioned "falling back into that place I fought so hard to get out of." Duran had looked like a different hitter in 2023 and rebounded every time he hit a slump, and he'll have to fight out of one once again.

  • Red Sox's Jarren Duran: Held out versus lefty

    Duran is absent from the lineup for Thursday's tilt against the Nationals, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports. The Red Sox have faced a slew of left-handers lately, including Thursday, which has resulted in Duran starting just two of the last six contests. Masataka Yoshida, Rob Refsnyder and Adam Duvall will be Boston's trio of starting outfielders against southpaw Patrick Corbin.

  • Red Sox's Jarren Duran: Sitting against lefty

    Duran is not in the lineup Wednesday versus the Nationals. Adam Duvall will play center field and bat sixth as the Red Sox face off against left-hander MacKenzie Gore. Duran has enjoyed a breakout season in Boston, but he continues to sit versus most lefties.

  • Red Sox's Jarren Duran: Sitting versus lefty

    Duran is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Royals, Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports. Duran will sit out the Red Sox's fourth straight matchup with a lefty (Cole Ragans). Rob Refsnyder will pick up the start in center field in place of Duran.
