Red Sox minor lines: Rusney Castillo makes his debut

It's Rusney Castillo time in Fort Myers!

Pawtucket W 10-4

Jackie Bradley Jr.: 1-4, BB, K
Bryce Brentz: 1-4, BB, K
Garin Cecchini: 1-5, 3 K
Alex Hassan: 3-3, BB

Henry Owens: 6 IP, 3 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 2 BB, 9 K, 1 HR

Owens' day is actually fairly positive, on the whole. While the hits were not cheap by any means, it was really just one inning in the middle where Owens just seemed to lose it. And with five strikeouts in the surrounding two innings, it came and left without warning.

Portland W 6-2

Keury De La Cruz: 0-4

Eduardo Rodriguez: 6 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 4 K
Noe Ramirez: 0.2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 0 K

This is Eduardo Rodriguez' worst start since coming over to the Red Sox. Yes, I said his worst.

Salem W 4-1

Carlos Asuaje: 0-3, BB, 2 K

Simon Mercedes: 7 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 9 K

Mercedes picked up more strikeouts in this one outing than his last five combined.

Greenville W 3-2

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

GCL Red Sox L 5-6

Rusney Castillo: 1-2, K
Michael Chavis: 1-3, 2B, 2 K
Rafael Devers: 1-4
Luis Alexander Basabe: 0-4, 2 K
Trenton Kemp: 2-4
Josh Ockimey: 1-4, K

Gabe Speier: 4.2 IP, 3 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 3 BB, 5 K

Rusney begins his Red Sox career with a single to left field, though he followed that up by being caught stealing and called out on strikes. This is hardly the debut we're really interested in, though. Give him as long as the minor league playoffs will sustain him to shake off the rust, then get him up to Fenway to give fans a taste of things to come.
