Red Sox minor lines: Madman Mookie Betts

Yeah, Mookie's at it again.

Pawtucket L 1-6

Ryan Roberts: 2-4
Alex Hassan: 0-4, 3 K, E
Daniel Nava: 0-4
Ryan Lavarnway: 3-4
Christian Vazquez: 1-4, K
Garin Cecchini: 2-4, K

Matt Barnes: 3 IP, 8 H, 6 R, 6 ER, 3 BB, 4 K, 2 HR

Matt Barnes had the look of a pitcher on the upswing, but it's hard to say that's the case after this game. Given his mediocre 2013 performance, it's a troubling trend from a prospect who's supposed to be one of Boston's best.

Portland W 6-5

Mookie Betts: 1-1, 3B, 4 BB, SB
Travis Shaw: 1-3, HR, BB, K
Blake Swihart: 0-4, 2 K
Henry Ramos: 3-4, K, CS

These days Mookie Betts doesn't always reach base. But when he does, he apparently does so five times. That's now 27 walks on the season for Betts compared to just 14 strikeouts, and 20 stolen bases in 23 attempts. Oh, and his triple? A two-run walkoff triple. He is a madman, plain and simple.

Salem L 3-6

Pat Light: 6.2 IP, 4 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 2 BB, 1 K

Light had peripherals going for him in Greenville, but they haven't made the transition to Salem. All that has is his high ERA.

Greenville W 7-2

Forrestt Allday: 2-3, 2B, BB
Tzu-Wei Lin: 0-4, BB
Manuel Margot: 1-4, 2B, K

Wendell Rijo is apparently missing time with an injured thumb, per Alex Speier. That leaves Forrestt Allday as our surprising shining light at the moment. He's hitting .295/.392/.409 in his first 44 at bats with Greenville. Unfortunately, he's also 23, leaving this a less-than-aggressive assignment for the eighth-round draft pick. He, like a number of other Greenville players, would probably benefit from a quick promotion.
