The Triston Casas era has officially begun.

Casas, the No. 2 ranked prospect in the Red Sox system, made his big-league debut on Sunday vs. the Texas Rangers. The 22-year-old first baseman collected his first MLB hit in a 1-for-4 day at the plate.

In 72 games this season with Triple-A Worcester, Casas slashes .273/.382/.481 with 11 homers and 38 RBI.
