Red Sox minor lines: Garin Cecchini gets something to hit

New, 24 comments

Garin Cecchini has been walking, walking, walking. Has somebody finally thrown him a strike?

USA TODAY Sports

Pawtucket W 7-1

Box Score

Jackie Bradley Jr.: 1-5, 2B, 2 K
Xander Bogaerts: 1-5

One thing that's been missing from Xander's game of late: the walk, with just one in his last ten games. His strikeout numbers have been falling consistently as the season has progressed too, however, even post-promotion.

Portland L 5-6

Box Score

David Ross: 1-1, 2B, BB
Garin Cecchini: 3-4, BB
Michael Almanzar: 2-4
Travis Shaw: 1-4, BB, K

Matt Barnes: 5 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 6 K

Cecchini, on the other hand, has been walking as much as ever, if not more. One almost wonders if he's just not getting a thing to hit. Well, someone clearly gave him some chances last night, allowing him to bump his average back up over .300 for the time being.

Salem W 6-1'

Box Score

Henry Ramos: 0-5, K
Deven Marrero: 1-4, HR, K
Keury De La Cru: 0-4, 3 K
Blake Swihart: 1-4, 2B, K
Mookie Betts: 3-4, HR
Cody Koback: 0-3

And suddenly Mookie Betts is back to being the hottest prospect on the farm.

Greenville L 6-10

Box Score

Sean Coyle: 0-3, BB, 2 K, CS
Kendrick Perkins: 0-4, K
Jose Vinicio: 0-3, K

Austin Maddox: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 3 K

Austin Maddox has actually been a serviceable pitcher over the last month or so. Is the switch to relief finally paying dividends?

Lowell W 3-1

Tzu-Wei Lin: 1-4, K
Forrestt Allday: 0-4, 2 K

Jamie Callahan: 2.2 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 2 K

Those must have been some very taxing innings for Callahan, given that he's been producing typical starting-length outings this year.
