Red Sox minor lines: Michael Chavis on a roll

It took Boston's first-round pick a little while to get going, but there's been no stopping him in August.

Pawtucket L 3-7

Jackie Bradley Jr.: 1-5, 2 K
Alex Hassan: 1-4, BB, K
Bryce Brentz: 1-5, 3B, K
Garin Cecchini: 0-0, BB
Deven Marrero: 1-4, SB

Cecchini's lone plate appearance came at the end of the game as a pinch-hitter, not the beginning leading to him being pinch-hit for. No injury concerns for the resurgent third baseman.

Portland W 4-3

Sean Coyle: 1-4, K
Keury De La Cruz: 2-4, 2 K
Michael Almanzar: 0-3, BB

Noe Ramirez: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K

Salem W 4-3 (In 10)

Carlos Asuaje: 1-5, K
Manuel Margot: 0-4

Alright, well, that ends Margot's on-base streak.

Greenville W 6-5

Cole Sturgeon: 3-4, 3 SB
Tzu-Wei Lin: 2-3, CS
Wendell Rijo: 1-3, BB, SB
Sam Travis: 0-4, K
Danny Mars: 0-3

Jamie Callahan: 3 IP, 6 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 5 BB, 1 K, 1 HR

What kind of hazing does a battery have to endure when they allow a batter's second, third, and fourth stolen base on the season in one game. Cole Sturgeon is not Jacoby Ell--

And now I'm sad...

Lowell L 2-5

Kevin McAvoy: 3 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 5 K

It's been 12 innings now since McAvoy has allowed an earned run. There was that one game he gave up five, but other than that it's been smooth sailing for the round four draftee.

GCL Red Sox L 3-4 (In 11)

Rafael Devers: 2-5, 2B, BB
Michael Chavis: 3-6, 3B, K
Luis Alexander Basabe: 1-4, BB
Josh Ockimey: 0-1

Michael Chavis August OPS watch: 1.008

That actually leaves his season total at a more respectable .720. Anyone getting worried about another first round pick's early struggles should have those fears assuaged by now. This is the Chavis we were expecting to see.

Let's not talk about Devers'. It's getting better, and that's what counts. Yeah.
