Red Sox minor lines: The Mookie Betts show starts anew, Henry Owens is insane

New, 72 comments

It took a couple games, but Mookie Betts seems ready to be the star attraction in Pawtucket. Meanwhile, back in Double-A, Henry Owens makes it clear he's ready for the jump as well.

Pawtucket W 8-7 (In 11)

Mookie Betts: 3-6, HR, POCS
Garin Cecchini: 1-4, 2B, 2 BB, 2 K, SB
Ryan Roberts: 2-5, 2B, HR, BB
Travis Shaw: 0-6, 4 K
Christian Vazquez: 1-5, 2B
Dan Butler: 1-3, 2B, 2 BB, K

Allen Webster: 6 IP, 7 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 4 K
Alex Wilson: 0 IP, 4 H, 5 R, 4 ER, 1 BB, 0 K
Rich Hill: 3 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 4 K

Yesterday I made the super, super bold (read: incredibly not bold) prediction that Mookie Betts would not have a zero next to his name for much longer. Two hits and a game-winning homer later, and he's sporting a .300 over there. Seems decent.

Portland W 5-1

Deven Marrero: 1-4, BB, K
Blake Swihart: 3-5, K
Sean Coyle: 1-4, 2 K
Keury De La Cruz: 2-4, 2B, K

Henry Owens: 8 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 6 K
Noe Ramirez: 1 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 1 K

In his last three games, Henry Owens has thrown 22 innings of shutout baseball, allowing all of 14 baserunners. 100 innings into his Double-A career, and he's already on another level.

Greenville L 3-9

Forrestt Allday: 0-3, BB, 2 K
Tzu-Wei Lin: 1-3, BB
Manuel Margot: 0-4

Jamie Callahan: 5 IP, 10 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 1 BB, 1 K

Jamie Callahan is also on another level, it seems. Just...in a different direction.

DSL Red Sox L 9-11

Rafael Devers: 1-5, K
