Top Red Sox prospect Blaze Jordan moved up a level after crazy hot start


Blaze Jordan is good at leaving great first impressions.

When the Red Sox selected Jordan in the third round in the 2020 Major League Baseball Draft, fans immediately got excited in large part to the third baseman's YouTube presence. It wasn't difficult finding epic Home Run Derby performances from Jordan throughout his high school career.

Now, the impressions are being embedded in the world of professional baseball.

As was first reported by Alex Speier, Jordan is already being promoted from the Florida Complex League to Single-A Salem.

The move comes after the 18-year-old tore up pitchers in Fort Myers, Fla. hitting .362 with a 1.075 OPS, four homers and 12 extra-base hits in 19 games and 76 plate appearances.

This year's third-round pick Tyler McDonough has also been promoted to Salem.
