Triston Casas Shows Off Wide-Ranging Skill Set After Red Sox Win

0 4

Boston Red Sox first baseman Triston Casas is really good with a bat in his hands.

He’s excellent with a mic in his hands, too.

Casas, who is still on the injured list as he recovers from a left rib cage injury he sustained in April, showcased his versatile skill set Tuesday night after the Red Sox took a 12-9 win over the Oakland Athletics at Fenway Park.

With NESN sideline reporter Jahmai Webster getting a night off, Casas filled in that role and conducted the postgame walk-off interview with fellow first baseman Dominic Smith, who was part of back-to-back home runs to cap off an eight-run second inning in the win.

Casas did the job superbly and even got a fantastic quote out of Smith, who couldn’t help but smile while getting interviewed by his teammate.

“I think this is a tough group,” Smith said. “… Sometimes we get punched in the mouth like you said, and we just show our heart. We come out and we try to play hard to the last out every day.”

Casas has found ways to display his personality despite not playing for over two months. He grabbed baseball fans’ attention last month when he told a wild story during an in-game interview on “Sunday Night Baseball.” He also recently appeared on NESN”s “310 To Left” Red Sox podcast, too.

The Red Sox certainly would like to see him back in the lineup rather than trying to be a member of the media. There’s no definitive timetable yet for Casas’ return.

Casas shouldn’t quit his day job yet as he still has many years ahead of him as a big leaguer. But perhaps he found a job once his playing career comes to an end.
