Red Sox minor lines: Yoan Moncada is missing

Please, Red Sox, return our prodigal son to us.

Pawtucket L 2-3

Deven Marrero: 1-4
Alen Craig: 0-2, 2 BB
Garin Cecchini: 1-3, BB
Marco Hernandez: 2-4, K

Noe Ramirez: 0.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 0 K

Allen Craig's minor league season doesn't exactly have folks clamoring to have him back up to the majors and playing at first base, but he's at least put up a .368 OBP. The problem is that there's not much indication that he can actually hit still. Just that he can take a walk from wild Triple-A pitchers.

Portland W 2-1

Manuel Margot: 0-4
Sam Travis: 2-4, SB, E

Williams Jerez: 2 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 1 K, 1 HR

Manuel Margot's stock has taken a nice bump up this year, but after a strong showing early in his time with Portland, he's been struggling in a big way at Double-A, hitting just .226/.265/.366 since the All-Star break.

Salem L 3-9

Daniel McGrath: 5.2 IP, 5 H, 5 R, 4 ER, 3 BB, 2 K

Greenville L 2-8

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

Four days now since we last saw Yoan Moncada, though his injury was said to be "nothing serious." Hopefully he proves that to be true by returning to action soon.

Lowell W 7-5

Luis Alexander Basabe: 1-5, 2 K
Andrew Benintendi: 2-5, 3B
Victor Acosta: 2-4, 2 2B, BB, K
Tucker Tubbs: 1-5, K
Josh Ockimey: 1-3, BB, 2 K, E
Tate Matheny: 1-5, 2 K

Someone pointed out in the comments the other day just how weird Benintendi's extra-base profile has been, and he's staying true to that, with four triples now to go with his seven homers and--here's the interesting bit--one double. Also of note: the only thing that had really been mundane about Benintendi's line was the batting average. But that was mostly BABIP-related, and while said number is still a bit small at .275, Benintendi has managed to get his average all the way up to .283 in spite of that.

GCL Red Sox W 8-0

Yoan Aybar: 0-3, BB, K
