Red Sox minor lines: Franklin Morales headed for the rotation?

Jared Wickerham

After another successful rehab start, is Franklin Morales ready to take over the fourth spot in Boston's rotation?

Pawtucket L 1-6

Box Score

Jose Iglesias: 1-4
Bryce Brentz: 2-4, 2 K
Jeremy Hazelbaker: 1-3, K

Franklin Morales: 3 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 4 K, 1 HR

It seems likely that this is Franklin Morales' last day of rehab, which puts him perfectly in line to get the start in the fourth spot of Boston's rotation, keeping both Doubront and Webster out of the mix.

Salem L 3-8

Box Score

Garin Cecchini: 1-4, 2B, K, POCS
Keury De La Cruz: 1-3, BB, K
Brandon Jacobs: 1-4, 2B, 2 K
David Renfroe: 1-4, 3B
Blake Swihart: 0-2
Henry Ramos: 1-3, K

Brandon Jacobs is on a four-game hitting streak, which doesn't sound the least bit impressive until you realize he's hitting under .200, at which point he doesn't sound the least bit impressive.

Greenville L 0-1

Box Score

Cody Koback: 1-4, 2B, K, A
Jose Vinicio: 0-3, E

Cody Kukuk: 4 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 3 BB, 3 K
