Red Sox minor lines: The final week begins

New, comments

With September on the horizon, Minor League Baseball begins the final stretch of the season.

Pawtucket W 6-0

Rusney Castillo: 3-5, 2B, 3B
Christian Vazquez: 2-5, 2B, K

Roenis Elias: 6 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 3 BB, 6 K
Joe Kelly: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 0 K

Joe Kelly is inevitably going to get called back up to try to help the bullpen. But man, I just don't see it. We only saw him for a couple innings out of the pen, but the way he played in relief was the exact same as he did as a starter: overwhelming velocity that somehow didn't seem to give hitters any real trouble.

Portland L 3-4 (In 11)

Yoan Moncada: 1-5, HR, 2 K
Ryan Hanigan: 2-3, BB

Moncada's ability to hit from the right side of the plate has lagged well behind his left-handed hitting, particularly since moving up to Portland. If the Red Sox do give Moncada anything more than a chance to do some pinch-running, chances are it won't come against MLB lefties.

Salem W 1-0

Michael Chavis: 0-4, 2 K
Rafael Devers: 1-3, 2B, BB, K
Nick Longhi: 0-4

Jake Cosart: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 2 K

Chavis' hot start quickly turns into an 0-for-14, so there's that.

Greenville L 1-5

Luis Alexander Basabe: 0-3, BB, K
Kyri Washington: 0-,4 3 K

Roniel Raudes: 3 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 0 K
Austin Glorius: 2.2 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 4 BB, 5 K
Stephen Nogosek: 1 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 0 K, 1 HR

An oddly short outing from Roniel Raudes, with no clear reason for his early departure given that I can find. He only needed 32 pitches to get through his three innings, and has regularly seen 70-to-80 on the year. Perhaps he's just running up against his innings limit for the season.

Lowell W 9-6

CJ Chatham: 0-3, BB
Tyler Hill: 1-3, 2 BB, K
Bobby Dalbec: 2-5, 2B
Yoan Aybar: 2-5, 2B, 2 K

Batting average is the only part of Dalbec's triple-slash that actually went up due to this performance.
