Red Sox minor lines: Alex Hassan demands his chance

Alex Hassan was given a brief taste of the majors, and he's making it abundantly clear that he deserves another.

Pawtucket W 5-2

Shane Victorino: 2-4, K
Trais Shaw: 2-3, 2B, BB
Alex Hassan: 2-3, HR, BB, K
Deven Marrero: 0-3, BB, K

Alex Wilson: 1 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 1 K

Pawtucket W 4-3

Shane Victorino: 1-4, 2B
Will Middlebrooks: 0-2
Travis Shaw: 0-3, BB
Alex Hassan: 1-3, HR, BB
Deven Marrero: 2-4, SB

Steven Wright: 8 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 2 K, 1 HR

I never thought that I'd be chomping at the bit to get Alex Hassan into the majors halfway through July, but here we are. He's been hitting like a madman ever since his briefest of callups with homers in four straight games and an OPS of 1.397 in his last 10.

Portland L 2-3

Michael Almanzar: 1-4, HR, 2 K
Sean Coyle: 0-1, K

Portland L 4-7

Blake Swihart: 0-3, 2 K
Sean Coyle: 0-4, 2 K, E
Michael Almanzar: 2-3, 2B, BB

The hot bats in Portland have started to cool down in a big way. Neither Coyle nor Swihart have much to show for their recent efforts.

Salem L 3-5

Pat Light: 5 IP, 8 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 3 BB, 2 K

After three decent starts, Pat Light is back to giving up a bunch of runs.

Greenville L 4-6

Wendell Rijo: 0-3, BB, 2 K, E

Lowell L 3-4

Danny Mars: 1-3, BB, K
Sam Travis: 1-4
Nick Longhi: 1-4, 2B

Lowell W 11-2

Danny Mars: 3-5, 2B
Sam Travis: 3-6, 2B, K

Kevin McAvoy: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K

Six innings of three-hit ball out of the gate for McAvoy, which is not terribly surprising given his experience, but nice to see all the same.

GCL Red Sox L 2-4

Josh Ockimey: 2-4, 2B
Rafael Devers: 0-3, BB, 2 K
Michael Chavis: 0-4, 2 K

Michael Kopech: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 2 K

I have never seen a team struggle to get a game in as badly as the GCL Red Sox have of late. Rain, rain, rain. Good luck getting into a rhythm at the plate.

DSL Red Sox L 1-4

Luis Alexander Basabe: 1-3, BB

DSL Red Sox W 10-2

Luis Alexander Basabe: 3-5, 2B, 3B, BB

One awfully big game from Basabe, which gives his recent run of getting on base a bit of much-needed heft.
