Red Sox minor lines: Brock Holt rehabs, Yoan Moncada debuts in Portland

While Brock Holt works his way back to the majors and Yoan Moncada gets his first hacks in against Double-A pitching, the lower levels are on break for All-Star festivities.

Pawtucket W 4-1 (6/20)

Brock Holt: 2-3, 2 2B
Rusney Castillo: 1-4, SB

Kyle Martin: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K

Pawtucket Game 1 W 2-0 (In 7) (6/21)

Rusney Castillo: 0-3

Henry Owens: 7 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 3 BB, 5 K

Pawtucket Game 2 L 2-3 (In 7) (6/21)

Brock Holt: 1-3, BB, K

While the Sox likely don't view him as a real LF answer anymore, they could certainly use Brock Holt back as the super-utility man, where he tends to do his best work. Speaking of LF, I almost don't know whether or not to bother with Castillo anymore. On some level, the DFA speaks volumes, but the reality is with guys like him and Allen Craig (sorry to remind you he exists), there's no benefit to keeping them on the 40-man if the Red Sox have no intention of playing them in the immediate future. All it'll take is a good Triple-A run, and they might reconsider the decision.

Portland W 10-4

Yoan Moncada: 1-5, 2 K
Andrew Benintendi: 2-5, 2B, K

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

The dynamic duo are back together in Portland, where Benintendi continues to show he's made his adjustments to Double-A pitching. We'll see how long it takes Yoan Moncada to find his rhythm, but at this point, anything he and Benintendi do the rest of this year is basically upside.

CAR All-Stars W 6-4

Mauricio Dubon: 1-2, SB

Y'know, I'm honestly a little surprised they didn't leave Moncada in Salem to play this game before heading up. Usually All-Star games serve as pretty good stopping points, but for whatever reason, they decided not to bother this time around. Oh well, without him and Benintendi, it's not that surprising that Salem's representation at the game was slightly thin.

SAL South All Stars L 1-2

Josh Ockimey: 1-2, BB
Luis Alejandro Basabe: 0-2, K
Austin Rei: 1-1, HR

Jake Cosart: 1 IP, 1 H, 1 BB, 3 K

A nice showing from Greenville's All-Stars. It's kinda surprising to see Rei here at all given that he's hitting just .216/.346/.301 on the year, but defense counts for something, and he certainly made good on his selection in his one at bat.

Lowell W 3-2 (In 10) (6/20)

Ryan Scott: 2-4

Lowell W 6-4 (6/21)

Ryan Scott: 0-3, K
Yoan Aybar: 1-3, BB, K, SB
