Red Sox minor lines: Devers and Washington fight back

Two floundering Red Sox prospects have finally started to push back in June.

Pawtucket L 2-3

Deven Marrero: 0-4, K

Joe Kelly: 4.2 IP, 6 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 5 K
Aaron Wilkerson: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K

Well, Joe Kelly doesn't exactly put any pressure on Roenis Elias for that fifth starter's spot. Unfortunately, it appears he might have pushed Aaron Wilkerson out of the rotation for now, which would be mildly infuriating. Go away, Joe. Just go away.

Portland L 5-11

Andrew Benintendi: 1-4, 2B

Alright, not too bad. Just keep putting the ball in play, Benintendi, and good things will happen.

Salem W 5-1

Yoan Moncada: 2-4, 2B, SB
Mauricio Dubon: 1-4, SB
Nick Longhi: 2-4, K
Rafael Devers: 2-4, 2 K, CS
Joseph Monge: 1-3

Good start to June for Rafael Devers. He's hitting .333/.407/.417 thus far. Not quite as good as Yoan Moncada, who's rocking a .981 OPS despite that slow stretch over the weekend, but good all the same.

Greenville Game 1 W 4-1 (In 7)

Michael Chavis: 1-3
Josh Ockimey: 1-3, 2B
Kyri Washington: 1-3, HR
Austin Rei: 0-2

Roniel Raudes: 5.1 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 5 K

Greenville Game 2 W 5-2

Michael Chavis: 0-3, K
Josh Ockimey: 1-3, BB, K
Kyric Washington: 2-4, HR, 2 SB
Luis Alexander Basabe: 2-3, BB, K, SB

Austin Glorius: 3 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 4 K
Marc Brakeman: 3 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 3 K

Big old pushback from Kyri Washington all-of-a-sudden. He had been just miserable in May, with the very obvious difference between that month and April being a dropoff in homers from 6 to, well, zero. With two here in the early days of June, the power outage might well be over. He'll certainly have to hope so, since if he's not hitting the ball out of the park, he's not doing all that much when you consider his stunning 39:4 K:BB.

Stunning for the wrong reasons, mind. Maybe work on that, Washington? I know the longball is fun, but yikes.
