Red Sox minor lines: Yoan Moncada does it all

New, 25 comments

How do you want Yoan Moncada to beat you? Power or speed?

Salem W 4-3

Wendell Rijo: 0-3, K

Teddy Stankiewicz: 6 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 3 K

Teddy Stankiewicz starts his climb back towards good numbers. Territory he will reach, then immediately fall from again with one bad game if his season-to-date is any indication.

Greenville W 7-6

Yoan Moncada: 2-5, HR
Michael Chavis: 2-4, 2B, K
Rafael Devers: 2-4
Javier Guerra: 1-3, K
Nick Longhi: 1-4
Greenville L 2-6

Greenville L 2-6

Yoan Moncada: 2-5, HR
Rafael Devers: 0-4, K
Nick Longhi: 1-3, BB, K, A

Yoan Moncada wants you to know that he is a five-tool player, so he hit standard home runs in back-to-back games, then went ahead and busted out an inside-the-park homer in his third. He was cold as can be coming off of extended spring training, and now somehow it seems likely he's going to make his way up to Salem after just a couple months all-the-same.

Lowell W 7-4

Luis Alexander Basabe: 2-5, HR, 2 K, SB
Andrew Benintendi: 0-2, 3 BB
Tate Matheny: 2-4, 2B
Victor Acosta: 2-4
Josh Ockimey: 0-3, BB, K
Mitchell Gunsolus: 1-2, 2 BB

As unheralded as Basabe is, I pretty much go into every promotion expecting it to be the one to undo him. But...Lowell is honestly one of the big ones. He's 18, and facing off against college pitching for the first time. But he's just rolling right along. After this, the next biggest test is probably Portland, when he'll start seeing real quality off-speed pitches with regularity. Greenville and Salem aren't nothing, but if they're more difficult levels, they're generally easier transitions.

GCL Red Sox W 8-3

Trent Kemp: 1-5, 2B, 3 K
Jagger Rusconi: 2-5, 3B
Yoan Aybar: 1-5, K

GCL Red Sox L 5-7

Jagger Rusconi: 0-4
Trent Kemp: 0-4, 3 K
Yoan Aybar: 2-4
