Red Sox Minor Lines: Bryan Mata and Jalen Beeks with off nights

New, 9 comments

The pitching wasn’t great on Thursday.

Pawtucket L 3-7

Aneury Tavarez: 2-5, 1 2B, 1 RBI, 1 K

Tzu-Wei Lin: 3-5, 1 2B, 1 RBI, 1 K

Bryce Brentz: 2-4, 1 R, 1 K, 1 E

Josh Rutledge: 1-4, 1 2B, 1 K

Rafael Devers: 0-3, 1 BB, 1 E

Jalen Beeks: 6.1 IP, 6 H, 6 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 3 K

Not the best start of Beeks’ career, although just from reading the box score one would have to imagine the PawSox defense had something to do with the issues. He’s still an exciting young pitcher, of course. Meanwhile, Rutledge has begun his rehab assignment and the team could be getting more infield reinforcements.

Portland W 12-6

Danny Mars: 1-5, 1 HR, 1 R, 2 RBI, 1 K

Josh Tobias: 1-3, 1 BB, 1 R, 1 K

Jake Cosart: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 3 K

The ball was flying out of the yard in Portland on Thursday, as can be seen by the fact that Mars went deep. He’s one of my favorite players in the system, but power has never been his calling card. It was a legitimate shot, to be fair.

Salem W 7-6 (F/11)

Josh Ockimey: 1-3, 1 BB, 1 R, 1 RBI, 1 K, 1 CS

Austin Rei: 0-5, 3 K

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

Nogosek has been quite good in his time with Salem, with 15 strikeouts in 12 13 innings. For the entire season he’s up to 60 strikeouts in 47 23 innings. I’d be surprised if he doesn’t at least get a short stint in Portland at the end of the year.

Greenville L 1-5

Lorenzo Cedrola: 0-4, 1 R, 1 K

Tyler Hill: 0-3, 1 BB, 1 RBI, 1 K

Roldani Baldwin: 0-4, 2 K

Bobby Dalbec: 0-4, 4 K

Bryan Mata: 3 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 1 BB, 2 K

While this wasn’t a terrible outing for the young Mata, though only going three innings is obviously a concern. He did throw 63 innings in those frames, so it’s possible that workload was the reason, but he’s gotten up to 80 in a few outings this year. It’s something to keep an eye on, at least. Meanwhile, yikes at that Dalbec line.

Lowell W 3-1

Yoan Aybar: 0-4, 2 K

Brett Netzer: 2-4, 1 K, 1 CS

Enmanuel De Jesus: 5 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 8 K

GCL Red Sox G1 L 0-3

Zach Sterry: 2-4, 1 K

GCL Red Sox G2 W 13-2

Cole Brannen: 0-2, 2 BB, 1 R, 1 K

Alan Marrero: 3-4, 1 2B, 1 HR, 2 R, 4 RBI

DSL Red Sox L 3-5 (F/10)

Alexander Martinez: 1-5, 1 2B, 1 RBI
