BOSTON – This is a chronicle of Yoenis Cespedes a Red Sox hoped they would get during a trade deadline.

Maybe it would take a while for him to adjust to a new city, a new team, a new ballpark, though his numbers and story would certainly plan good during Fenway Park.

Wait … what wait?

Since he debuted with a Red Sox on Aug. 2, a Cuban left fielder has finished zero though infer his worth.

It was on arrangement nonetheless again on Friday night as he powered Boston to walk-off victory in a 4-for-6 night during a plate.

“We knew he was a man who had a extensive skills package though he’s proven to us time and time again in RBI situations that he’s got a knack for it,” manager John Farrell said.

Cespedes how has 26 RBIs given a trade, pushing in scarcely 20 percent of Boston’s runs in that span. Eleven of those 26 RBIs have given a Red Sox a lead.

“He’s an aggrresive hitter so he’s got a possibility to strike some balls that competence be off a edge,” Farrell added. “He stays in a center of a margin for a many partial he’s not a dead-pull hitter where he competence be receptive to violation balls divided and he keeps a round in a zone. He’s aggressive, he’s clever and he’s got all-field coverage.”

Cespedes’ power was lilliputian in Oakland during a expanded O.co Coliseum, though a full year during Fenway is expected to infer otherwise. The first month or so is early proof.

In 32 games given fasten Boston, he’s attack .279/.297/.459/.756 with 7 doubles, dual triples and 4 homers.

On Friday, he matched a career high with 4 hits, something he’s down 3 times, though not given Jul 2012.

Cespedes has been a indispensable boost to an differently forbidding group that sits 21 1/2 games out and still has 21 games left to play out.

“Kind of like Ortiz,” Xander Bogaerts pronounced of Cespedes. “I don’t know if they share tips with any other though when he sees guys on base, he drives them in.”

The 28-year-old is attack .421 with runners is scoring position in his 32 games in Boston.

His proceed is rubbing off on Bogaerts and a other immature hitters, too.

“You can learn a lot,” Bogaerts said. “It’s only a matter of going over there and seeking questions. (Cespedes and Ortiz) are indeed unequivocally open to giving we tips and whatever recommendation we want.”
