Red Sox Minor Lines: Travis Lakins does it again

New, 13 comments

Travis Lakins keeps rolling, Brock Holt and Josh Tobias get rolling.

Pawtucket W 4-3

Aneury Tavarez: 0-4, 1 K

Rusney Castillo: 0-4, 1 K

Brock Holt: 1-2, 1 HR, 1 BB, 1 R, 2 RBI

Bryce Brentz: 0-1, 1 K

Steve Selsky: 1-3, 1 K

Sam Travis: 0-3, 2 K

Jantzen Witte: 0-2, 1 BB, 1 R, 1 K

Brian Johnson: 7 IP, 10 H, 3 R, 2 BB, 3 K

Kyle Martin: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K

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

Tuesday represented the best day to this point of Holt’s rebab with a walk and a home run. Coming off a Triple-A pitcher, it’s doesn’t mean a ton, of course. With that being said, any progress is good considering the big-league team’s issues at third base. Holt hasn’t played the infield yet during this stint, but that’s expected to be the next step in the process.

Portland W 6-5

Danny Mars: 1-4, 1 2B, 1 BB, 1 K, 1 SB

Josh Tobias: 3-5, 2 R, 2 RBI, 1 K

Rafael Devers: 1-4, 1 BB, 1 R, 1 RBI

Nick Longhi: 4-5, 1 RBI

Teddy Stankiewicz: 5 IP, 8 H, 5 R, 4 ER, 1 BB, 3 K

Jamie Callahan: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K

This was Tobias’ best game since being promoted to Double-A at the start of the month, as he was hitting .208/.259/.250 prior to Tuesday’s action. Now, that line is up to .276/.313/.300. There still isn’t a lot of power to be found, but at least he’s getting on base for one day. Although his early-season performance in Salem was encouraging, he was always a little old for that league. This will be the real test for the young infielder.

Salem W 6-1

Tate Matheny: 0-2, 2 BB, 2 K

Michael Chavis: 0-4, 3 K

Josh Ockimey: 1-4, 1 2B, 1 R

Austin Rei: 0-4, 3 K

Kyri Washington: 1-4, 1 2B, 1 R, 1 RBI, 1 K

Travis Lakins: 6.2 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 4 BB, 8 K

I’m not sure what else there is to say about Lakins, who has nearly dominated in just about every start this season. The control wasn’t great in this particular outing, but he was tough to make contact off and his eight strikeouts were his most since his second start of the year. This was also the deepest he went into a game this season, both by innings and pitches. He’ll be in Portland before we know.
