Red Sox minor lines: Mauricio Dubon moves up

Salem on-base machine Mauricio Dubon has joined Andrew Benintendi and Yoan Moncada on the increasingly interesting Portland roster.

Pawtucket L 1-6

Brock Holt: 0-2, 2 K, E
Ryan Hanigan: 1-3, 2B, BB, K
Rusney Castillo: 0-4, 2 K

Justin Haley: 5.1 IP, 4 H, 6 R, 6 ER, 3 BB, 6 K, 1 HR
Kyle Martin: 2.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 4 K
Pat Light: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K

I'd ask Brock Holt to save us, but realistically the left field situation isn't likely to be completely solved in-house. I'd ask Rusney Castillo to save us, but apparently he's not even as interesting an option as Bryce Brentz, and this 0-for-4 doesn't exactly do much to suggest otherwise.


Someone save us?

Portland L 2-5

Yoan Moncada: 0-4, 2 K
Mauricio Dubon: 1-3, 3B, BB
Andrew Benintendi: 0-3, BB, K

Guess Moncada got the message about not making Benintendi look bad. Now to tell Dubon and sabotage his second Double-A game! After finishing Salem with a .387 OBP, he's off to a fine start against the more advanced pitchers in the Eastern League. So long as he keeps on making contact when he's given something to hit, he'll be able to make up for his relative lack of power.

Greenville L 7-8 (In 10)

Luis Alejandro Basabe: 1-6, 3 K
Michael Chavis: 2-5
Josh Ockimey: 2-4, BB, 2 K
Kyri Washington: 1-4, 2B, BB
Luis Alexander Basabe: 1-5, 2B, 3 K
Austin Rei: 2-5, 2 K

Ah, a good old-fashioned Greenville game with 9 strikeouts split between four players. Thankfully, Michael Chavis is not included in those ranks. Since his return, he struck out once in his first game back, and then three times on June 17. Other than that? Zero. He hasn't been as fantastic as he was to start the season, hitting just .293/.333/.415, but the four strikeouts in 41 at bats are a positive sign, and the power should continue coming back as time passes.

Lowell W 5-2 (In 11)

Yoan Aybar: 1-4, BB
