Red Sox minor lines: Rafael Devers continues to rake

New, comments

It's only the DSL, but Boston's youngest big-name prospect is putting on a show.

Pawtucket W 7-0

Mookie Betts: 2-5
Dan Butler: 1-4, BB, 2 K
Travis Shaw: 2-4, 2 K
Chrstian Vazquez: 2-5, 2B, HR, K

Anthony Ranaudo: 7 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 7 K

This is the first time in three starts Anthony Ranaudo hasn't walked four batters. Hopefully he's pulling a Henry Owens style 180 here--this game is certainly reminiscent enough of one of Owens' more recent efforts.

Portland L 4-6

Deven Marrero: 1-5, 2B, SB
Blake Swihart: 0-5, E
Sean Coyle: 1-4, 2 K, SB
Keury De La Cruz: 1-4

Keith Couch: 5 IP, 9 H, 4 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 6 K

Sean Coyle has struck out twice in each of his last three games. On the season, he's striking out in just about a quarter of his plate appearances which is not exactly what you want to see from anyone who's not going yard 25+ times.

Greenville L 1-6

Forrestt Allday: 1-3, CS
Tzu-Wei Lin: 0-3, BB
Wendell Rijo: 1-3, 3B, BB

Teddy Stankiewicz: 5 IP, 9 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 1 BB, 5 K

Lot of hard contact in a big fifth inning off of Stankiewicz. In the first three innings of games, he's sporting a 1.64 ERA with 22 strikeouts and eight walks. In innings four through six, a 7.83 ERA with 16 strikeouts and 10 walks. An odd problem for a guy with his build and repertoire.

DSL Red Sox W 5-3

Rafael Devers: 3-4, 3B, BB, K

It will be interesting to see how far and how fast the Red Sox are willing to push Devers in the years to come. A quick bump up to the GCL when they start playing seems in order for this season, but if he succeeds there, might we see him match Xander Bogaerts by making the trip to Greenville at 18?
