Jamie Gatlin | July 19th, 2019

When the Red Sox won the World Series last year, they were led by stars Mookie Betts, Chris Sale, and J.D. Martinez. Even with their success, young players like Rafael Devers were inconsistent.

New York Yankees 57-30, 1st place +7.5 GB

Positives:

However, the early stages of this season are showing promising signs for the young Devers.
