Deven Sommer Marrero (born August 25, 1990 in Miami, Florida) is a shortstop who plays in the Boston Red Sox system. Listed at 6' 1", 194 lb., he bats and throws right handed.[1]

Marrero was selected 24th overall by the Red Sox in the first round of the 2012 MLB draft out of Arizona State University.[2]

As a freshman in 2010, he hit a .397 batting average with 42 runs batted in to earn a spot on the Collegiate Baseball First Team Freshman All-American squad as well as Pac-12 All-Conference honorable mention honors. He really took off in the 2011 season, in which his sterling defense led him to be named the Pac-10 Defensive Player of the Year and earned a spot on the All-Pac-10's first team, all while hitting a .313 average.[3]

Marrero began his professional career in 2012 with Single-A Lowell Spinners of the New York–Penn League, where he posted a slash line (BA/OBP/SLG) of .268/.358/.374 with 19 extra-base hits, 45 runs and 24 stolen bases in 64 games.[3]

Entering 2013, Marrero is ranked as the best 11th prospect in the Red Sox minor league system. He was invited to spring training, to become the first Red Sox position player to attend the training camp spring training the season following the year he was drafted since Scott Hatteberg in 1991 and 1992.[4]
