Red Sox Minor Lines 9/3: Finale

And thus ends the season, at least for most of the system.

Pawtucket W 6-4 (In 12)

Box Score

Walkoff victory to end the regular season. Paw Sox have postseason play ahead, however.

Jeremy Hazelbaker: 1-5, K, SB
Juan Carlos Linares: 2-6, 2B, HR
-It seems like the power has slowed down since the promotion, but that's 8 bombs in both levels, and in fewer Triple-A plate appearances.
Bryce Brentz: 2-5, K
-Regular season ends with a bit of a disappointing .290/.349/.467 line between Portland and Pawtucket. Exceptional in August, however.
Che-Hsuan Lin: 1-5, K
-Nearing 24, Lin's time to produce with the bat enough to earn a real major league look are rapidly vanishing.

Scott Atchison: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 0 K
Jose De La Torre: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K

Portland L 3-7

Box Score

Travis Shaw: 1-3, BB, K
-A tremendous introduction in High-A should earn him a very good look in 2013. His numbers fell off some in Portland, but kept on walking and hitting for power.
Xander Bogaerts: 1-4, 2B, 2 K, E
-I'm not sure if Xander will be in top-10 lists for all of baseball next year--his defensive projections can be a bit polarizing--but just a fantastic year. Only drew one walk in Portland, but managed a .948 OPS besides.
Christian Vazquez: 0-4
-Probably destined to be a FedEx-style trade piece, or a career backup, but that's a jump from the obscurity of a couple years ago.

Brandon Workman: 5 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 6 K, 1 HR
-Workman has really rode the hype roller coaster. Excited many when drafted, sort of overlooked in a good-not-great debut, and now on the rise again. Limited cieling if he's destined for the bullpen like some expect, but still an impressive arm.

Salem W 9-4

Box Score

Keury De La Cruz: 2-5, 2B
-The surprise of the season, easily, clubbing 20 homers after maxing out at six in years past. Lacks discipline, but still an interesting breakout.
Adalberto Ibarra: 2-3, BB, K
-Bizarre how little charge he puts into the ball. A .069 ISO just doesn't make sense given his build. Will be an interesting experiment in Portland.
Sean Coyle: 1-5, K, SB, E
-Showed none of his impressive stuff from 2011 until the second half. A rare dark spot in a great year for the system, but showed some signs of recovery.
David Renfroe: 1-4, 2B, BB, 2 K, 2 E
-Showed signs of breaking out early...then didn't, really. Not a great year for the lost 2009 draft class.

Keith Couch: 5 IP, 4 H, 4 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 5 K
-Couch continues to have really impressive peripherals, if not as impressive as in 2011. Flying under the radar as a potentially useful piece, even if stardome isn't exactly in his future.

Greenville W 4-2

Box Score

Garin Cecchini: 0-1, 3 BB, 2 SB, 2 CS
-Just about the quietest bit of excellence you'll see out of a Red Sox prospect. When Cecchini came into the system, he was interesting as a guy who could put up some power and hit for average from a SS/2B/3B role. He sure hit .300 this year--.305 in fact--but also showed exceptional discipline and stole 51 bases besides (those are just his 5th and 6th times caught stealing--probably just having fun today). Perhaps most important of all: he stayed healthy.
Henry Ramos: 0-4, K

Lowell L 1-4

Box Score

Deven Marrero: 1-4, 2B

Frank Montas: 3.2 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 4 K
