Red Sox minor lines: Soft toss from Felix Doubront

Felix Doubront's rehab continues, as does his inability to throw the ball with his old velocity.

Pawtucket W 4-3 (In 10)

Mookie Betts: 1-5
Travis Shaw: 3-5, 2 K
Garin Cecchini: 3-5, HR
Christian Vazquez: 1-3, BB, K
Alex Hassan: 2-3, BB, K
Dan Butler: 0-3, BB

Felix Doubront: 4.2 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 3 K
Rich Hill: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K
Drake Britton: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 0 K

Felix Doubront apparently barely touched 90 in his outing. Bad news given that he hasn't shown the ability to get by with reduced velocity this year. It's the sort of thing that really suggests Doubront's future is in the bullpen. To say nothing of, y'know, his career stats.

Portland W 5-1

Deven Marrero: 2-5, CS
Blake Swihart: 1-4, 2B, 2 K, E
Sean Coyle: 1-4
Keury De La Cruz: 1-4, K

Brian Johnson: 6 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 6 K

Johnson is kind of giving me Workman vibes as the guy who everyone expects will find his way into the bullpen but just keeps on managing to produce, even deeper into games. Given how well he's doing in Portland, he's largely caught up to where he should be in terms of age progression, and should join Henry Owens next year as Triple-A rotation protection, replacing whoever makes it to Boston to start the season.

Salem L 7-9

Justin Haley: 6.1 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 0 BB, 7 K, 1 HR

I'm not sure why Haley was pushed back into a piggybacking scenario here--perhaps it was just because Cody Kukuk imploded so dramatically--but he's still getting starter-length outings, and making the most of them in the process. So there's really no problem with it for now.

Greenville L 5-8

Tzu-Wei Lin: 2-5
Wendell Rijo: 1-5, 3 K
Manuel Margot: 3-4

Jamie Callahan: 4 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 5 K

It's not exactly an amazing start, but that's Jamie Callahan's best game in a long while.

DSL Red Sox W 8-6

Rafael Devers: 1-4, BB
