Red Sox minor lines: Jon Denney debuts

J. Meric

Boston's exciting young catching prospect makes his debut in the GCL.

Pawtucket L 2-6

Box Score

Jackie Bradley Jr.: 0-4, BB, K
Will Middlebrooks: 1-4
Bryce Brentz: 2-4, 2B
Xander Bogaerts: 0-3, BB, K
Brock Holt: 0-3, BB, 2 K

Chris Hernandez: 5.2 IP, 6 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 4 BB, 3 K, 1 HR

A .259 BABIP will only keep Xander Bogaerts down for so long.

Portland L 4-6

Box Score

Christian Vazquez: 2-5, 2 K
Garin Cecchini: 1-2, 2 BB
Michael Almanzar: 0-4, K
Travis Shaw: 0-3, BB, 3 K
Kolbrin Vitek: 0-4, K

Garin Cecchini OBP watch: .509. It's just too easy for him right now.

Salem W 3-0

Box Score

Henry Ramos: 1-4, 2B
Deven Marrero: 1-3
Keury De La Cruz: 1-4, 2B, K
Brandon Jacobs: 1-2, 2B, BB
Swihart: 0-4
Cody Koback: 0-4, 2 K

Mike Augliera: 8 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 7 K

Hopefully this is a breakout performance for Mike Augliera. He's been putting up a fair few solid performances, but nothing on this level in any facet of the game, despite the fact that he was billed as a great K:BB guy.

Lowell W 4-2

Box Score

Tzu-Wei Lin: 0-5, K
Manuel Margot: 0-3, BB, K
Kendrick Perkins: 0-4, K
Williams Jerez: 1-4

Ty Buttrey: 5 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 1 K

At this point we realize that the whole system clearly used up its hits in the previous day's explosion, leaving relatively little left for today.

GCL Red Sox L 5-6

Box Score

Jordon Austin: 0-2, 2 BB, K
Jon Denney: 1-3, BB, SB

Now that Jon Denney (and, for that matter, Austin) are playing, the GCL seems worth paying attention to. Denney, the exciting catching prospect the Sox were lucky enough to have fall to them in the third round, started off his Red Sox career with an event not at all befitting of a catcher: a steal of home. Admittedly, it came as part of a double steal, but hey, it's still something.

Austin, Boston's athletic sixth-round pick, has been playing for a few games already. Thanks to an early propensity for walks, he's hitting a very silly .286/.545/.286.
