Boston Red Sox manager John Edward Farrell said he was happy with the performance of Taiwanese
infielder Lin Tzu-wei (林子偉), calling him “a pleasant surprise” during an interview on Monday.
Lin finished the first nine innings in Monday’s game with zero hits but helped the Red Sox defeat the Texas Rangers 7-5 in overtime with a walk and two runs.
After the game, Farrell told The Boston Globe that “Lin’s making most of the opportunity.”
“I think Tzu-Wei has been a pleasant surprise given the way he’s hit the baseball with the fair consistency he’s shown,” Farrell said.
The Red Sox clinched its fifth straight win on Monday despite losing its main infielders due to injuries.
To fill in that gap, Lin had been promoted from the Double-A Portland to the Major Leagues at the end of last month. [FULL STORY]
