Red Sox minor lines: Still no challenge for Andrew Benintendi

Someday Andrew Benintendi will find a level that challenges him for an extended period of time. Maybe.

Pawtucket L 0-3

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

Justin Haley: 5 IP, 6 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 3 BB, 3 K

Well, we now have a great start, a bad start, and a mediocre start from Justin Haley in Pawtucket. Normally the early returns wouldn't be all that interesting, but the Red Sox are so hard-up for starters that it would have been nice to see him come out as dominant as Wilkerson has.

Portland L 9-10

Yoan Moncada: 1-5, 3 K
Mauricio Dubon: 1-5, 3B, 3 K
Andrew Benintendi: 4-5, 2 2B

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

Don't love all those strikeouts. Do love Benintendi going into a game where the opposition was racking all those strikeouts up and making them look like high school players. There's a much longer piece to be written on his performance in his year in the organization. I think I'll go and do that.

Salem Game 1 W 5-3 (In 7)

Joseph Monge: 1-3, HR, BB, K
Nick Longhi: 2-3, 2B
Rafael Devers: 0-3

Salem Game 2 W 7-6 (In 7)

Rafael Devers: 2-4, 2B

Yankory Pimentel: 4 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 5 K

First sign of power from Joseph Monge since he was bumped up to Salem. But even without the power he's been doing everything else he possibly can, with a .372 OBP in the month of June.

Lowell W 4-2

Ryan Scott: 2-5
Yoan Aybar: 2-4, 2B

Rare positive performances in Lowell. But the relative lack of production isn't all that concerning since Lowell rarely says much about anything, to be honest. Ah the strange world of short-season ball.
