New, comments

Another big day for Chavis

Pawtucket W 4-0

Jackie Bradley: 1-3, 1 HR, 1 R, 1 RBI, 2 BB, 1 K

Blake Swihart: 0-4, 3 K

Josh Rutledge: 0-3, 1 R, 1 RBI, 1 K

Sam Travis: 0-3, 1 BB, 2 K

Bryce Brentz: 1-4, 1 K

Deven Marrero: 0-3, 1 BB, 2 K

Hector Velazquez: 5 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 3 K

Brandon Workman: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 5 K

Blaine Boyer: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K

Noe Ramirez: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K

Busy day in Pawtucket, as nearly the entire list of players who appeared in this game are of some interest to Red Sox fans. There’s the rehabbing Bradley, who headlined the offense and hit a home run. He should be back with the major-league squad this weekend. There’s Travis and Swihart, who both had disappointing days. Then there’s Velazquez, who continues to look solid as he transitions to the state. Among all those names, though, Workman rises above. He’s not worked seven innings in Triple-A this year and has ten strikeouts with just one walk. It’s looking more and more like he’ll be able to help the major-league ‘pen this year.

Portland PPD

Salem W 7-6

Tate Matheny: 2-5, 1 E

Josh Tobias: 1-5, 2 R

Michael Chavis: 3-4, 3 HR, 3 R, 5 RBI, 1 BB

Roniel Raudes: 5 IP, 6 H, 4 R, 2 BB, 3 K

Yankory Pimentel: 2 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 4 K

Just a couple days removed from the disabled list, Chavis doesn’t appear to have missed a beat. He rocked three home runs for Salem on Wednesday, including the walkoff that gave them the victory. We know the former first round pick has power, but it’s the hit tool that has held him back to this point. Obviously, we’ll never complain when he shows off this kind of potential, but a long run with games full of singles and lacking strikeouts will be just as encouraging as this incredible night.

Greenville W 4-2

Tyler Hill: 0-1, 1 BB, 1 R, 1 K, 2 SB

Yoan Aybar: 1-4

Lorenzo Cedrola: 0-4, 2 K

Stephen Nogosek: 2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K

A pretty boring day in terms of prospects for the Drive on Wednesday. Their entire outfield is interesting, but none of them did much of note in this game. Nogosek is an interesting arm out of the bullpen, and while he’s had a little bit of trouble with run prevention thus far he also has a 10/2 K/BB ratio in eight innings of work.
