Red Sox Minor Line: Jalen Beeks keeps cruising

Jalen Beeks shines, Mike Shawaryn does not.

Pawtucket W 7-1

Aneury Tavarez: 2-5, 1 K

Tzu-Wei Lin: 2-4, 1 R, 1 K

Rusney Castillo: 3-5, 1 HR, 2 R, 1 RBI, 1 K

Bryce Brentz: 1-4, 1 BB, 1 R

Sam Travis: 2-4, 1 BB, 1 R, 1 RBI

Jalen Beeks: 6 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 8 K

Robby Scott: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K

Austin Maddox: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K

Beeks may be having the quietest breakout season on the entire farm. Sure, he’s been discussed some, but given his performance and the tangible change he’s made to simplify his delivery, you’d think we’d hear more about the young lefty. Perhaps this game will change that. The southpaw has now tossed 56 innings in Pawtucket and has pitched to a 2.89 ERA with 58 strikeouts and 18 walks.

Portland W 6-4

Michael Chavis: 1-2, 1 2B, 2 BB, 2 R

Danny Mars: 2-5, 1 RBI

Henry Owens: 5 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 3 BB, 5 K

Jake Cosart: 1 IP, 2 H, 3 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 1 K

It was a solid day all-around for the SeaDogs even if none of these performances are really memorable. Chavis didn’t hit one over the fence, but he did get on base three times in four plate appearances. Owens only allowed the one run and struck out more batters than he walked, which at this point is a success. Even Cosart, whose line wasn’t impressive, got through an inning without a walk. These are low bars, but at least they were cleared.

Salem L 2-7

Josh Ockimey: 0-4, 1 K

Austin Rei: 2-4, 1 R, 1 K

Mike Shawaryn: 2.2 IP, 6 H, 5 R, 4 BB, 3 K

Since they were both drafted out of college around the same point in the draft, Shawaryn and Shaun Anderson were always going to be compared to each other. It’s been an interesting battle between the two righties in their first full season, but now Anderson is gone and Shawaryn is left by himself. His first start in this new era did not go so well. Coincidence??? Probably!

GCL Red Sox L 4-5

Pedro Castellanos: 2-5, 1 3B

Taylor Ahearn: 4 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 1 BB, 5 K
