Red Sox Minor Lines: Henry Owens still can’t find the strike zone.

New, 7 comments

Owens walks the world again.

Pawtucket L 2-7

Rusney Castillo: 0-5

Steve Selsky: 1-4, 1 K

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

Henry Owens: 4.2 IP, 6 H, 5 R, 7 BB, 5 K

Jamie Callahan: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K

Another tough, tough day at the office for Owens, who remains unable to put it together. Early in the week, I mentioned in the SP prospect roundup that he’s still young enough to call him a wildcard, but he has to find a way to throw more strikes. With seven walks in less than five innings this time around, it’s clear that hasn’t happened yet.

Portland G1 L 0-3

Danny Mars: 0-1

Josh Tobias: 1-3

Rafael Devers: 0-2, 1 BB, 1 K

Teddy Stankiewicz: 7 IP, 6 H, 3 R, 0 BB, 5 K

Portland G2 W 8-1

Josh Tobias: 0-3, 1 BB, 2 K

Rafael Devers: 3-4, 2 2B, 2 R, 2 RBI

Williams Jerez: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K

Austin Maddox: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K

It’s a shallow lineup for the Seadogs right now, and it got a little more shallow on Tuesday when they lost Mars in the first game of the doubleheader. The outfielder was involved in a collision in the outfield and left the field from there, albeit under his own power. Meanwhile, it was another impressive day for Devers. Even in the first game, when Portland was one-hit, he managed to draw the team’s only walk of the day.

Salem L 4-9

Tate Matheny: 3-5, 2 R

Michael Chavis: 2-5, 1 2B, 1 RBI

Josh Ockimey: 2-5, 1 BB, 1 RBI, 1 K

Austin Rei: 0-4, 2 K

Shaun Anderson: 6 IP, 10 H, 7 R, 3 BB, 4 K

Tuesday was Anderson’s first start at High-A after being promoted from Greenville early in the week. Obviously, you can see from the box score that things did not go well. To his credit, he settled down a ton after the first inning. He started things off by allowing six runs on six hits in the first frame and still made it through six innings. In that sense, it was an encouraging outing for Anderson, but in that sense only.

Greenville L 5-6

Lorenzo Cedrola: 1-5, 1 R, 1 K

Tyler Hill: 3-4, 1 2B, 1 R, 2 RBI, 2 SB, 1 CS

Yoan Aybar: 1-4, 1 2B, 1 R, 1 K

Stephen Nogosek: 1.2 IP, 1 H, 2 R, 2 BB, 2 K

A little mix of the same for the Drive, who are still without Bobby Dalbec. According to Sox Prospects, it’s a wrist/hand issue that is keeping the third baseman out of action. In his absence, Hill continues to step up both at the plate and on the base paths. Nogosek, meanwhile, has one of his worst game. There is nothing to worry about with the young reliever, who is just waiting for a promotion to the next level.
