Red Sox minor lines: The ebb and flow of Ty Buttrey

A few steps forward for every step back makes for a pretty good season.

Pawtucket W 7-6 (In 10)

Deven Marrero: 3-5, BB, CS
Allen Craig: 1-4, 2B, BB, K
Marco Hernandez: 1-5, 2B
Garin Cecchini: 1-5, K

Noe Ramirez: 0.1 IP, 3 H, 4 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 0 K

Oh, Noe. So many Triple-A relievers. So little hope.

Portland L 2-12

Manuel Margot: 0-4, K
Sam Travis: 0-3, BB
Carlos Asuaje: 1-3, HR, BB, K

Salem L 1-2

Ty Buttrey: 7 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 4 K

I would say it's nice to see Buttrey putting it all together, but he's kind of been like the Eduardo Rodriguez or Wade Miley of the minor leagues. He puts together a whole bunch of nice starts then has one pretty bad one that sets him back. For example, nine of his last ten starts have seen him surrender either one or five earned runs. Not a lot of in-between. But on the whole, the balance is very nice for Buttrey, resulting in a strong season.

Greenville L 2-6

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

Yoan Moncada is back, not with his most exciting performance, but just "back" is enough for now.

Lowell W 3-0

Andrew Benintendi: 2-3, 2 BB, SB
Victor Acosta: 1-5, K
Josh Ockimey: 0-2, 2 BB, SB
Kyri Washington: 0-3, BB, 2 K
Mitchell Gunsolus: 1-4, 2B, K
Austin Rei: 0-4
Tate Matheny: 0-1, BB, K

Seven stolen bases for Andrew Benintendi now in eight tried. He's going to do more with the bat, likely, than he does with his legs, but he can still swipe a good few bags, and God knows he'll have plenty of opportunities if he keeps reaching base at this pace. Seems like there's not much he can't do, the farm system's new golden boy.
