Fangraphs takes a look at Devers and concludes: 

Given what Devers is doing in Double-A, at his age, the organization should be encouraged that he can be that competent, reasonably productive third baseman down the stretch. At the very least, he should get a shot before they settle for a Frazier or a Freese, or even a Mike Moustakas. If you call Devers up in mid-June and he looks overwhelmed for a month, there’s still time to make a trade. But guys who hit like this in Double-A at this age? Sometimes, they just carry your lineup in the second half of the year.

Red Sox third basemen have 13 errors on the season and the lowest OPS in baseball.

.333 with 6 HR in AA.  If he keeps hitting like this, he's going to force the Red Sox to make a decision in the second half, if not sooner.

That also means three straight games with HR, because he hit the first pitch he saw of the last two games out as well.  The second one was a 400+ foot shot over the CF wall.

Scouts have always said his power will develop (broad shoulders and a strong bottom half), but this week is the first in which it has materialized.  Let's just hope it keeps developing and this isn't just clumping of data points.

I heard his name pronounced De-VERS, which goes against my New Yorker pronunciation of DEE-vers.  Oh, well.  I'll take 324/351/606, regardless of how you say it.

Rafael Devers, 3b, Red Sox.
Speaking of youngsters, Devers began the year as the second-youngest
player in the Eastern League, behind just Gleyber Torres (Yankees). And
like Urias, it hasn’t bothered Devers one bit. He was 5-for-5 Tuesday
with two homers, four RBIs and four runs as Portland beat Hartford
(Rockies) 12-11. Devers, whose career high is 11 homers, already has
five this season.
