2023

After being drafted, Teel played for three different levels in the Red Sox organization: their rookie ball team, High-A Greenville, and Double-A Portland. In 26 games, he slashed .363/.483/.495 with a .977 OPS; he scored six doubles, two home runs, 22 RBI, 15 runs, three stolen bases, and 21 walks.

Future

ITD ranks Teel as the Red Sox’s third-ranked prospect and the 62nd overall prospect entering 2024. Teel isn’t expected to reach the Red Sox until 2026, but if he puts up numbers for an entire season as he did in a small sample size last year, he could force the Red Sox hand to call him up sooner.
