Red Sox minor lines: Rusney Castillo walks off, Allen Craig lives

Rusney Castillo picks up a big hit for Pawtucket, and Allen Craig shows signs of life.

Pawtucket W 2-1 (In 10)

Rusney Castillo: 2-5, 2B
Deven Marrero: 1-3, BB, K, CS
Bryce Brentz: 0-4, 3 K
Allen Craig: 2-4, 2B, K, E
Travis Shaw: 1-4, K
Garin Cecchini: 2-3
Sean Coyle: 0-4, 3 K

Keith Couch: 5.1 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 2 K, E

Since going 0-for-11 in his first three games back from the disabled list, Rusney Castillo is a solid 8-for-25 with a handful of walks, including a walkoff single on Tuesday night. His overall line in Triple-A isn't much to look at, but by-and-large there's no reason to worry so long as he stays healthy.

And hey, signs of life from Allen Craig in his Triple-A debut! If he can hit in Triple-A, particularly playing every day, then there's reason to believe he's not fundamentally broken. We'll see.

Portland L 3-6

Carlos Asuaje: 1-4
Keury De La Cruz: 0-4, K

Justin Haley: 5 IP, 6 H, 4 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 1 K

Justin Haley has only once struck out more batters than he's walked this year. That's...not a good thing.

Salem L 5-7

Sam Travis: 1-3, BB, K

Greenville W 4-0

Rafael Devers: 0-4, 3 K
Michael Chavis: 1-4, 2B, 3 K
Javier Guerra: 1-2, 2B, 2 BB, K

At this point, an 0-for-5 day with no strikeouts would be more encouraging from Michael Chavis. This is a guy who was supposed to be one of the better hitters in the class, and if he's also straight out of high-school, that doesn't explain away a 37% K-rate.
