The Boston Red Sox will promote top outfield prospect Jarren Duran, who could make his major league debut Thursday against the New York Yankees, according to a report Wednesday from the Worcester Telegraph & Gazette.

Duran, 24, is hitting .270 with 15 home runs, 32 RBIs and 12 stolen bases in 46 games with Triple-A Worcester this season. He has started at all three outfield positions but is projected as a center fielder for the Red Sox.

The Red Sox will need to make a corresponding move to add Duran to the 40-man roster.

Boston selected the California native out of Long Beach State in the seventh round in 2018. He is listed as a top-100 prospect (No. 86) by MLB.com.
