Red Sox minor lines: Jackie Bradley Jr., Xander Bogaerts, Jose Iglesias going strong

Jim Rogash

The Red Sox' star prospects shined bright on Monday night.

Pawtucket W 8-2

Box Score

Jackie Bradley Jr.: 3-4, 2B, BB, K, CS
Ryan Lavarnway: 2-5, 2B
Bryce Brentz: 1-4, 3B, BB, 2 K, E
Jose Iglesias: 3-4, SB, POCS
Brock Holt: 1-4, K

Jackie Bradley Jr. finally gets back to doing what we remember him doing best. The same can't exactly be said of Jose Iglesias, but nobody will complain if he keeps on setting new precedent.

Portland W 8-2

Box Score

Xander Bogaerts: 3-5, K
Travis Shaw: 1-4, BB
Michael Almanzar: 2-4, 2B
Christian Vazquez: 1-2, 2B, 2 BB

John Lackey: 3.2 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 5 K
Keith Couch: 4 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 3 K

John Lackey says he might just be ready to make his next start, which is surprisingly good news for involving John Lackey. As for Xander Bogaerts, all that's really left for him is the power. He's got his average and OBP up to reasonable figures after a really dreadful start. Tack on a homer or two and you'll have about what was expected of him.

Salem L 7-10 (In 11)

Box Score

Deven Marrero: 1-2, 2B, BB
Garin Cecchini: 1-5, BB, K
Brandon Jacobs: 1-2
Keury De La Cruz: 2-5, 2 2B, BB
David Renfroe: 0-6, 2 K
Blake Swihart: 1-3, 2 BB, K, SB
Henry Ramos: 0-2, 2 BB, K, CS

Salem is lacking in top star power, but there's plenty to like there. Cecchini and Marrero probably aren't too far from joining the next tier, either. Both performed well last year, and are doing a fine job of reinforcing those performances with a good start to 2013.
