Red Sox minor lines: Here today, gone tomorrow?

New, 2 comments

This might be the last time you see some of these players in a Red Sox minor league recap.

Hey, it's deadline day! Here are some guys we might trade!

Pawtucket L 1-6

Travis Shaw: 1-4, 2 K
Allen Craig: 1-3, BB
Garin Cecchini: 0-4, K
Marco Hernandez: 2-3, 2B, BB, E

Edwin Escobar: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 1 K

Marco Hernandez sure went from "random pickup from Cubs" to "22-year-old shortstop holding his own in Triple-A." It's hard to find a place for him in Boston anytime soon, but that's a serious stock boost to the point where he might work as a reasonable trade throw-in this year, or perhaps something more next year.

Portland W 5-4

Manuel Margot: 0-3, BB, K, CS
Carlos Asuaje: 0-3, BB
Sam Travis: 2-4, 2B, K

Sam Travis just plugging away. For those like myself who ride the Hanley to first bandwagon, it really would be easy to transition Travis to the position when Ortiz finally calls it a career and opens the way for Ramirez to DH.

Greenville L 4-8

Yoan Moncada: 1-4, K, SB
Michael Chavis: 3-4, 2B, HR
Rafael Devers: 0-4
Nick Longhi: 0-4
Javier Guerra: 1-4, K

A big game from Chavis, who it's true, is certainly having a better month in July than he did in June. The issue being that June was so bad that July pretty much had to be better, and that the young infielder is still striking out in some 30% of his at bats. I want to believe, and the power seems to be real, but Chavis' negatives stand out a lot more than his positives right now.

Also, here stands probably the only player the Red Sox will not consider moving: Yoan Moncada.

Lowell W 5-2

Luis Alexander Basabe: 0-4, K
Andrew Benitendi: 1-2, 3B, BB
Tate Mathenty: 1-2
Kyri Washington: 0-2, BB, SB
Josh Ockimey: 0-2, BB, 2 K, CS
Mitchell Gunsolus: 1-3, BB, SB
Austin Rei: 1-4, K

Jake Cosart: 6 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 0 BB, 3 K

Not sure what led to Benintendi coming out of this game early other than that he was removed after a play at the plate. Hopefully nothing serious, and one imagines we'd have heard something if it was, but worth keeping an eye on.
