Red Sox Minor Lines 6/18, 6/19: The Most Interesting Team In The World

New, comments

Miles Head has 14 homers and a 1.020 OPS at 20. Brandon Jacobs combines home run power with stolen base speed. Sean Coyle is sporting an impressive line for a middle infielder despite a BABIP that is only now reaching the lower levels one would expect from a slower player who doesn't collect a good deal of extra base hits. And Xander Bogaerts is still four months from 19, doing his best to make good on the understated hype that's slowly building around him.

And then there's a pitching staff which features some ridiculous peripherals coming from guys that only the more devoted minor league followers have heard of. Keith Couch, anyone?

Even with Ranaudo and Brentz having left for more challenging pastures, the Greenville Drive are pretty interesting.

Box Score

Kolbrin Vitek: 2-4

Greenville W 5-4

Box Score

Sean Coyle: 1-4, HR, K, E
Miles Head: 1-3, 2B, BB
Brandon Jacobs: 2-2, 2B, 2 BB
-Jacobs is looking a bit more disciplined of late, and the homers are back, so he might not be due for quite so major a BABIP adjustment.
Christian Vazquez: 1-4, 2B, K
Henry Ramos: 0-4, K
-Ramos has slowed down since his strong start. It wouldn't be too surprising to see him sent down to Lowell or even the GCL since his promotion wasn't really performance based to begin with necessarily.
Xander Bogaerts: 1-3, HR
-Bogaerts, on the other hand, may not look back at this rate.

Keith Couch: 5 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 6 K

Box Score

Keury De La Cruz: 0-4, K

Boss Moanaroa: 1-3, HR, K
-It might be easy to forget since his season ended so early, but Boss was doing a pretty good job in Lowell last year when he was playing.
Seth Schwindenhammer: 0-2, BB, K
