Red Sox Top Prospect Dealing With Offseason Knee Issue

He has yet to resume playing in the Dominican Winter League this offseason.

Boston Red Sox top prospect Triston Casas has been inactive for Licey in the Dominican Winter League for the last two weeks due to knee discomfort. 

He reportedly underwent a precautionary MRI in Boston that didn't reveal any structural issues, which is a good sign. Right now, it doesn't sound like a serious issue that could impact his readiness for spring training, but after missing so much time this year already with an ankle injury, it would be disappointing to see him miss even more time.
In the minors this year, Casas slashed .281/.389/.500, with 12 home runs, 41 RBIs, and 48 runs scored over 76 games. 

The twenty-two-year-old also made his major league debut this season, playing 27 games for the Red Sox and hitting .197, with an impressive five home runs and 12 RBIs in his first taste of major league action.
