Minor Lines 4/15/10: Mining for Replacements

Pawtucket L 2-3 (In 10)

Box Score

With Bill Hall's mediocrity and the potential injuries to Ellsbury and Cameron, I think it's time to start following the potential AAAA call-ups.

Jorge Jimenez: 2-5, K
Darnell McDonald: 2-5, 2B, HR, K
-Having a huge start to the season. .393/.433/.750
Tug Hullet: 2-5
Kevin Frandsen: 1-5
Aaron Bates: 1-4, 2B, K
Daniel Nava: 1-4, 2 K

Daisuke Matsuzaka: 6 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K
-Velocity still isn't quite back, but it was rising as the game went on, and he's attacking the zone with all his pitches. A few too many fly balls, but more than a third of them stayed in the infield.

Lars again fails to totally suck after the jump. And yes, this is a thing.

Portland L 2-4 (In 11)

Box Score

Drop their home opener, but don't look too bad in doing so.

Ryan Kalish: 1-4, BB
Che-Hsuan Lin: 0-5, PO
-So much for the fast start. At least he's generally making contact.
Luis Exposito: 0-4, BB, 2 K
Lars Anderson: 1-3, 2B, BB, 2 K
Yamaico Navarro: 1-3, BB, SB
Jose Iglesias: 2-4, 2B
Jason Place: 1-4, 2 K

Kyle Weiland: 5 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 3 BB, 6 K
-Faded some as the game went on.

Salem W 7-1

Box Score

Pete Hissey: 1-5, K
Tim Federowicz: 1-4, BB, K, PB
Anthony Rizzo: 0-4, BB, K
Ryan Lavarnway: 2-4, 2 HR, K
-The system's 2009 home run leader looks to reclaim his title. Lavarnway's batting prowess could be enough that he doesn't have to be a long-term catcher...
Will Middlebrooks: 0-4, 3 K
-Oh God, what happened?
Oscar Tejeda: 0-4, 2 K

Fabian Williamson: 5 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 3 K

Greenville W 4-0

Box Score

All of a sudden the speed team shows some power. Greenville looks very interesting this year.

Derrik Gibson: 1-4
Chris McGuiness: 1-4, HR, K
-Good to see some power from him.
Michael Almanzar: 2-4, HR, K
-Good to see anything from him.
Jeremy Hazelbaker: 0-3, BB, K, PO
-Seems to be getting beaten by pickoffs now that guys are expecting him to run.
Reymond Fuentes: 0-2, K, SB
Ken Roque: 0-2, BB, K

Manny Rivera: 5 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 9 K
-Can't say I expected this. Nice to see, regardless.
