Red Sox minor lines: Jackie Bradley Jr.'s quiet excellence

New, comments

Jackie Bradley Jr. hasn't exactly had a flashy season in the minors, but the numbers are there all the same.

USA TODAY Sports

Pawtucket L 0-10

Box Score

Jackie Bradley Jr.: 2-5, 2 K
Bryce Brentz: 1-4
Jeremy Hazelbaker: 1-4, K
Jose Iglesias: 0-4, K
Brock Holt: 1-2, 2 BB, POCS

Jackie Bradley Jr. has six hits in his first four games back to action. It doesn't exactly feel like Bradley has been killing it at Triple-A this year, but he's sitting on an average well north of .300 and a .878 OPS. He's still the guy we remember from spring and last year.

Portland W 8-4

Box Score

Xander Bogaerts: 1-5, 3B, K, E
David Ross: 1-3, 2B, 2 K
Travis Shaw: 0-1
Michael Almanzar: 0-3, BB, E

Franklin Morales: 5 IP, 6 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 3 K

Hopefully this battery sees some time in Fenway park before too long.

Salem L 4-7 (In 7)

Box Score

Sean Coyle: 1-3, HR, BB, K
Deven Marrero: 1-4
Garin Cecchini: 1-2, 2 BB, SB
Keury De La Cruz: 1-4, 2B
Brandon Jacobs: 1-4
Blake Swihart: 0-4
Henry Ramos: 1-2, 2B, BB

If the minor league performances haven't seemed quite as awesome of late, a large part of that has to do with Salem spending most of its time underwater these days. This was supposed to be a double-header, but sure enough the tarp struck again.

But, hey, in the time they did get to play, Coyle and Cecchini certainly did their thing.

Greenville L 7-12

Box Score

Mookie Betts: 3-5, 2B, K
Cody Koback: 1-4, 2B, K
Jose Vinicio: 1-3, BB, K, 2 E

Cody Kukuk: 0.2 IP, 1 H, 6 R, 2 ER, 3 BB, 0 K

If Mookie Betts gets promoted to Salem before the draft restocks Greenville, it will be the sheer worst.
