Red Sox minor lines: Signs of life from the big names

The system has been in a bad way this past week. But Andrew Benintendi and Rafael Devers are showing signs of life.

Pawtucket W 3-1

Rusney Castillo: 1-3, BB
Sam Travis: 0-4
Deven Marrero: 1-3

Aaron Wilkerson: 6.2 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 9 K, 1 HR
Kyle Martin: 1.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K
Pat Light: 0.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 0 K

Aaron Wilkerson's return to Pawtucket (he had a spot start there in late April) goes much better for him. I don't know if the Red Sox view him as anything more than an organizational arm right now, but with how much of the depth down there has evaporated into thin air, he's actually not all that far back in line for a chance in Boston's rotation. Roenis Elias is probably ahead of him right now, but don't you go to Wilkerson before revisiting O'Sullivan?

Portland W 2-1

Andrew Benintendi: 2-4, K, SB, POCS

Luis Ysla: 2 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 1 K

Benintendi finally has multiple hits in a game! And, for that matter, a four-game hitting streak. All we need now is some extra-base power.

Salem W 5-2

Joseph Monge: 1-5, 2B, K
Mauricio Dubon: 0-4, BB, E
Nick Longhi: 1-4, 2B, K
Rafael Devers: 3-4, CS

That's the first time Devers has picked up more than two hits in a game this season. Starting to see a little bit of life on that front, if there's still a long way for him to go after nearly two dreadful months.

Greenville L 8-9

Josh Ockimey: 2-4, BB, K, E
Austin Rei: 1-3, 2 BB, 2 K

Roniel Raudes: 4 IP, 8 H, 6 R, 4 ER, 0 BB, 2 K
Jake Cosart: 2 IP, 1 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 4 K

The first major stumble on the year from Raudes, who was perhaps throwing a few too many strikes.
