Red Sox minor lines: Brian Johnson the untouchable

New, 47 comments

Boston's oft-overlooked first round pick from 2012 is demanding the attention he deserves of late.

Pawtucket L 1-3

Alex Hassan: 0-3, BB
Travis Shaw: 0-4, 2 K
Deven Marrero: 0-4, K
Blake Swihart: 1-3, K

Edwin Escobar: 6 IP, 8 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 5 K

Edwin Escobar seems to be enjoying the change of scenery quite a bit. After all, usually four straight hits result in a run. But not in this fourth inning.

Portland W 3-1 (In 11)

Sean Coyle: 1-3, 2 BB
Keury De La Cruz: 2-5, 2B, 2 K

Brian Johnson: 8 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 5 K
Noe Ramirez: 1 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 1 K

On July 7th, Brian Johnson surrendered seven runs in two innings of work. Since then? 23 baserunners and four runs--only two earned--in 35.1 innings of work. He holds a 1.89 ERA, and could well start 2015 in Pawtucket if there's room for him.

Salem L 5-13

Carlos Asuaje: 3-5, K

Simon Mercedes: 5 IP, 6 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 2 BB, 2 K

Greenville W 8-5

Manuel Margot: 2-5
Tzu-Wei Lin: 1-4, BB, K
Wendell Rijo: 0-3, BB
Sam Travis: 1-3, 2B, BB
Cole Sturgeon: 2-4

Trey Ball: 6 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 4 K

More reasonable results from Trey Ball! He's getting there! Probably! Maybe...
