Tim Federowicz will be promoted to Salem after the SAl All Star Game.

Scouting Report: Well-built catcher's frame with a strong core. Line drive hitter with decent power potential. Makes good contact, mediocre plate discipline. Behind the plate, Federowicz presently is above average defensively, and has the tools to develop into a very good major league defensive catcher. Extremely strong and accurate arm with a quick release. Outstanding at throwing runners out. Calls a good game and handles the pitching staff well. Glovework can use a little bit of improvement. Average speed (pretty good speed for a catcher).

He is on a tear this season. He is leading the Sox Minors in HRs at 10, AVG at .345, 6th in OBP at .393, 4th in doubles at 19, 2nd in hits at 78, 8th in runs at 34, and 8th in RBI;s at 34.
