Red Sox Minor Lines 4/5: Season Opener

New, 16 comments

Yesterday was Opening Day not just for the Red Sox, but for three of their minor league teams: Pawtucket, Portland, and Greenville. Which means, of course, the return of minor lines!

We've got a particularly good crop of guys in the minor leagues this year, I'd say, but a lot of them won't be getting started until today with the Salem Red Sox. For now, however, enjoy last night's rather full box scores:

Pawtucket W 4-2

Box Score

Jose Iglesias: 1-4, K
Ryan Lavarnway: 0-3, 2 BB, K
Lars Anderson: 0-2, 2 BB
Will Middlebrooks: 3-4, 2 2B
-More production then he had in his first 56 ABs at Pawtucket last year!
Che-Hsuan Lin: 0-4, 2 K
Alex Hassan: 0-4

Junichi Tazawa: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 4 K

Oh, that reminds me, who should be the "after the jump" guy this year? Bogaerts is the obvious one, but I'll leave it up to you folks.
