Heading to the Dominican Republic today to work with our players and coaches at the White Sox Academy. I’ve spent a lot of time in the DR over the years, as a player, manager and a roving instructor. I once got to go as a member of the Marlins contingent to scout Jose Abreu, before he signed with the CWS. The last time I was there, was after I was hired as a hitting coach for the Red Sox to visit Rafael Devers. Below is some video I took of his swing that day. I thought then, as I still do now, that he was going to be one of the best hitters in the big leagues, possibly one day in the conversation of being one of the best of all time. It was a joy working with him and watching him play for two years. I’m very proud of him and his growth over the years and I feel blessed to be a part of his journey. This is a video of him hitting batting practice at the Red Sox Academy in December of 2017….
