Red Sox Minor Lines: Jalen Beeks shines again

New, comment

A rough day for Blake Swihart; strong starts from Jalen Beeks and Darwinzon Hernandez.

Pawtucket L 2-5

Blake Swihart: 0-4, 2 K, 1 PB

Josh Rutledge: 0-1, 2 BB

Sam Travis: 2-4, 1 R, 1 K

Bryce Brentz: 1-4, 1 2B, 1 RBI, 1 K

Deven Marrero: 0-4, 1 K

Edgar Olmos: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 4 K

Chandler Shepherd: 1 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 2 BB, 1 K

Noe Ramirez: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K

It was another rough day for Blake Swihart, who is in the midst of a pretty serious slump down at Triple-A. He doesn’t have a hit since April 14, or since when he got in that collision with Sam Travis. Speaking of Travis, the first baseman had been going through a slump of his own but had a nice little game on Saturday.

Portland G1 W 3-0

Aneury Tavarez: 2-2, 1 2B, 1 BB, 1 R

Danny Mars: 0-3, 1 K

Rafael Devers: 1-3, 1 2B, 1 R

Nick Longhi: 1-3, 1 HR, 1 R, 1 RBI

Jalen Beeks: 7 IP, 5 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 7 K

Portland G2 L 0-5

Danny Mars: 0-3, 1 K

Aneury Tavarez: 1-2, 1 BB

Rafael Devers: 0-3, 2 K

Nick Longhi: 0-3

Jake Cosart: 0.2 IP, 1 H, 4 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 1 K

Ty Buttrey: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 3 K

Big game for Jalen Beeks, whose seven innings actually gave him a complete game shutout with it being a double-header in Portland. It was a nice bounce-back for Beeks, whose last start included five runs over 3 23 innings, and he now has shutouts in two of his three outings. With him spending some time in Portland last year as well, he could work his way up to Pawtucket at some point this summer if he continues to throw like this.

Salem PPD

Greenville W 3-2

Santiago Espinal: 0-2, 1 BB, 1 RBI

Yoan Aybar: 0-3, 1 RBI, 1 K

Bobby Dalbec: 1-4, 1 R, 3 K

Lorenzo Cedrola: 0-1, 1 BB, 1 K, 1 E

Darwinzon Hernandez: 5 IP, 0 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 5 K

Stephen Nogosek: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K

Hernandez continues to have something of an eye-opening full-season debut down in Greenville. In this no-hit outing, he once again struck out a batter per inning in what is becoming a common occurrence for the 20-year-old. Through his first four starts he has pitched to a 3.38 ERA with 25 strikeouts and eight walks over 18 23 innings of work.
