Marrero Happy With His Start

LOWELL, MA - There's a new kid on the block for the Red Sox. He gets compared to Sox superstar Dustin Pedroia often and actually has a connection with Boston's second baseman. Deven Marrero was selected by the Red Sox in the first round of the June 2012 draft from Arizona State, the same school Pedroia played his college baseball at.

The two have the same style of play and having gone to the same school they are mentioned in the same sentence a lot. Marrero looks up to Pedroia and tries to emulate his game after him.

After he was drafted by the Red Sox in June, Marrero got the chance to go work out at Fenway Park and meet the team. One guy he didn't meet for the first time was Pedroia. The two have talked in the past and have a friendship.

"Me and Pedroia goofed around a lot, you know, ASU boys. He just gave me good advice like he always does," Marrero said about that day at Fenway.

"He just told me to come out here and play my game, play the Sun Devil way and just keep playing hard and keep grinding it out. I have special talent he told me and that talent will take you a long way, but you just have to be mentally focused and go out there and have fun."

Marrero was assigned to the Red Sox short season A-affiliate the Lowell Spinners to get his professional career underway. Marrero was selected in round 17 of the 2009 draft by Cincinnati but opted to continue playing for the Sun Devils at Arizona State. He set an ASU record for freshman with a batting average of .397 in his first year.

This time around, the draft obviously was much more special to the Florida native. He came into the draft being mentioned as a top prospect and the Red Sox said they were fortunate enough to get him at number 24 overall. He didn't care at what number his name was called, all that mattered was that the last name Marrero was heard.

"I was at my house there in Davie and had my family and some of my close friends there with me that have been with me my whole life that I wanted to share that experience with," Marrero said. "It was just a great time to have all of those people there."

With being a first round pick comes the hype, the attention, and the expectations. All of that doesn't bother Marrero. He feels as if he knows the game and knows what he has to do to be successful.

"There's no pressure because being a first rounder, you got that talent. I just go out and have fun," Marrero said. "I have great teammates that let me have fun and have fun with me and keep me in line. This is just a great time out here. We're just out here playing and having fun."

Spinners manager Bruce Crabbe couldn't say enough about his first round pick. Crabbe said that Marrero can basically do it all.

"Deven is just a baseball player. He's got everything that you ask for as far as makeup goes, instincts goes, baseball ability goes, you know, he's got the whole package," Crabbe said.

"This kid, he knows how to run the bases, knows how to play defense, knows what to do at the plate, knows how to act in the clubhouse, and knows how to interact with staff and players."

Crabbe said that the other players very much so look up to Deven and watch the way that he goes about his business daily.

"Absolutely, you can't help but watch him," Crabbe said. "That's how you learn to play the game the right way. He's smooth, he's got good hands, got a good arm, good feet, and you look at players like that and say 'hey that's the way it's supposed to be done'."

Marrero is known for his defense primarily and is still working offensively. He's hitting .256 with Lowell on the season entering Sunday's contest with two home runs and 15 RBI. Marrero knows that there is always room for improvement but put into his words how he sees his game.

"I'm a grinder. I'm not a big guy and don't hit the ball far. I'm a gap to gap guy and get on base. I create havoc on the bases, steal a lot of bases and get in scoring position for the big guys behind me," Marrero said. "It's nice and smooth, my game. You know, just go out there and have a lot of fun with it."

Marrero said that if he wasn't playing professional baseball right now he would be back in school and finishing his criminal justice degree. If not for baseball, he said that he could see himself being some kind of detective but also would be involved with community service and charity events.

But Marrero is playing professional baseball and having a blast. The only Sun Devil to make the All-Academic Team last season is living his dream and enjoying every bit of the journey.

"This is another step in my life, the next chapter in my life," Marrero said. "It's just the beginning of my professional career.

"I hope to be in the big leagues really soon and that's my ultimate goal to stay there and be one of the best. This is just a great start for me. I couldn't be any happier to tell you the truth," Marrero said.
