I'm working on Big Prices for the Guide. Today I have Rafael Devers with a price of $14. What do you think?

Fuel for whether batting with runners on is luck:

In seven postseason games, the Astros have slashed .274/.388/.498 and scored 52 runs.

In eight postseason games, the Red Sox have slashed .257/.350/.399 and scored 52 runs.

His fielding wasn't bad either.

Kinsler at second, Devers at third tonight.

He was called up one year ago today and has earned $18 (5x5) in the full season period. While he's a minor disappointment this year, I think he's doing just fine for a 21 year old in the majors.

Great call, Eugene!

With five knocks tonight, Devers is suddenly hitting a respectable (these days) .251. As June comes to an end, he has 14 homers and 46 runs batted in.

Red Sox outhit the Yankees 17-2.

Devers is starting to heat up.  If his owner in your league is concerned about him, I would consider it a buying opportunity

2016 at A+ (the youngest player in his league)

April 138/242/263

May 245/304/351 (yes, I waived him in one league)

June 313/352/386

July 357/408/670

August 328/357/487

2017 at AA (I believe he was the 2nd youngest in his league)

April 274/297/452

May 295/385/533

June 326/380/728

July promotion to AAA after only 9 games 286/412/500

July at AAA 400/447/600 in 9 games before being promoted to the Majors

He was the youngest in the AL last year.  He's the 2nd youngest to Gleyber Torres this year.

He's the 2nd youngest player in the AL this year. Easy to forget, because we focus so much on the best minor league prospects.  He's younger than nearly every player who finished four years of college and was drafted last week.  Younger than many of the juniors too.  Also, except last season, he has historically had a bad first half (usually two months).

Rotoworld sometimes spins it like it is.

6.08: Rafael Devers went 1-for-3 with a double during Friday's loss to the White Sox. (His knock was one of just three the Red Sox could scrounge up against Dylan
Covey and the White Sox bullpen in the shutout loss. The 21-year-old
third baseman hasn't been very good this year as his rate stats have
declined precipitously compared to his rookie season. He has a
.229/.283/.403 triple-slash with nine homers and 28 RBI in 251 plate
appearances. He is loaded with talent though and still remains likely to
have a strong career in the majors despite his rough season thus far.)

I'm convinced that the comment writers at Rotoworld know nothing about baseball:

Rafael Devers went 3-for-5 with two runs scored in Friday’s win over the Orioles.

Devers doubled and scored in the first inning before reaching on a single in the third and coming around to score on a passed ball. The young third baseman came into Friday’s action hitless over his last three games, so perhaps this will get him going. He’s batting .271/.345/.438 with one home run and 10 RBI over 12 games. (emphasis added)

He's hitting 271/345/438 with 10 RBI in 12 games and he needs to get it going?  What?  This OPS is hardly different from his projection. Peter's projections are above.  ZiPS has him at 273/324/484.  Steamer 280/337/468.  Oh, and 10 RBI in 12 games is "on pace" for 135 RBI.  I mean, come on kid, get it going.
