Red Sox minor lines: Short stays in Pawtucket

Will Middlebrooks and Brandon Workman's stays in Pawtucket might not last much longer.

Pawtucket W 7-2

Mookie Betts: 1-5, 2 K
Will Middlebrooks: 1-5, HR, K
Travis Shaw: 3-4, BB
Garin Cecchini: 1-5, K
Deven Marrero: 0-3, BB
Alex Hassan: 0-0, 4 BB

Steven Wright: 3.2 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 0 BB, 1 K

Pawtucket W 5-1

Mookie Betts: 1-3, BB, K
Will Middlebrooks: 1-4, HR, K
Travis Shaw: 2-3, 2B, K
Alex Hassan: 0-3, K
Deven Marrero: 1-3, K

Brandon Workman: 6 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 6 K

Will Middlebrooks has been bouncing from rehab assignment to rehab assignment so long now that it's hard to believe he hasn't just been optioned outright. Though that might very well be what ends up happening when push comes to shove.

Less likely to stay down in Triple-A is Brandon Workman, who has to have his eyes set on the trade deadline and Jake Peavy's rotation spot. Then again, there's always the possibility Stephen Drew is gone by then as well...

Portland L 2-4

Blake Swihart: 1-4, 2B
Sean Coyle: 1-3, HR, BB, K
Michael Almanzar: 2-4, K

Portland L 1-7

Blake Swihart: 2-4, 2B, 2 K
Sean Coyle: 0-3, K
Michael Almanzar: 0-3
Keury De La Cruz: 0-3

Henry Owens: 4 IP, 5 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 4 BB, 6 K

Owens seems to mix in these nights right when he's on his best runs. Still, this is the worst we've seen him in months.

Salem L 0-5

Carlos Asuaje: 2-4

Simon Mercedes: 5 IP, 7 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 1 BB, 6 K

Greenville W 9-2

Cole Sturgeon: 2-4, 2 2B
Wendell Rijo: 2-5, 2B, 3B
Manuel Margot: 1-5, K

Greenville L 3-8

Cole Sturgeon: 2-4, 2B, BB
Wendell Rijo: 1-5, 3 K, SB

Lowell L 6-8

Danny Mars: 1-4, K. SB
Sam Travis: 1-4

Lowell L 3-9

Danny Mars: 2-5, 2 K
Sam Travis: 3-4, 2B

Kevin McAvoy: 1.2 IP, 7 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 0 BB, 2 K
Ty Buttrey: 5 IP, 6 H, 4 R, 3 ER, 3 BB, 5 K, E

SoxProspects' Ian Cundall says not to trust McAvoy's stat line on the night. Still, yikes.

GCL Red Sox L 3-8 (In 7)

Victor Acosta: 0-4, 2 K
Michael Chais: 0-2, BB, 2 K
Trenton Kemp: 0-3, 2 K

Jake Cosart: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 0 K

GCL Red Sox L 5-6 (In 10)

Victor Acosta: 2-4, K, SB
Rafael Devers: 1-3, BB
Luis Alexander Basabe: 0-3, A

GCL Red Sox L 4-5

Rafael Devers: 1-4, K
Luis Alexander Basabe: 3-4, 2B, K
Trenton Kemp: 2-4

Luis Alexander Basabe seems to have followed quickly in Rafael Devers' footsteps. If things don't change soon, the only productive hitters on the GCL team may both end up having started the season in the DSL.
