Red Sox Minor Lines: Brock Holt, Rafael Devers go deep

It was a mixed bag on the farm on Monday

Pawtucket L 5-6

Brock Holt (LF): 2-4, 1 HR, 1 R, 3 RBI

Jhonny Peralta (3B): 0-4

Pablo Sandoval: 2-4

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

Steve Selsky: 0-4, 1 K

Noe Ramirez: 1 IP, 2 H, 4 R, 2 BB, 1 K

Austin Maddox: 0.1 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 0 BB, 0 K

Holt is trying to come back from a concussion-based injury, so obviously there are more important issues are hand than his performance. Still, it’s nice to see him going deep with some hope of returning in 2017. That didn’t always seem possible. Also, Brentz got another extra-base hit and was also named to the International League All-Star team on Monday while also being invited to the Triple-A Home Run Derby.

Portland L 7-8

Rafael Devers (3B): 2-5, 1 HR, 1 BB, 2 R, 4 RBI, 1 K

Michael Chavis (DH): 1-4, 1 BB, 1 RBI

Josh Tobias: 2-4, 1 HBP, 1 R, 1 K

Travis Lakins: 2.2 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 1 ER, 4 BB, 3 K

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

Lakins continues to struggle in adjusting to Double-A competition, despite the lack of earned runs he’s allowed. This is actually the fourth consecutive start in which he’s allowed two or fewer earned runs, but he hasn’t had the innings nor the peripherals for that to be impressive. Lakins still has plenty of potential, but he’s not going to be someone who will speed his way to the majors. In other news, Devers hit another home run. Ho hum.

Salem W 3-2 (F/12)

Josh Ockimey: 2-6, 1 2B, 1 HR, 1 R, 2 RBI, 2 K

Tate Matheny: 2-5, 1 K

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

Stephen Nogosek: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 3 K

Ockimey must have heard me last week when I worried whether or not he was going to be going through another second-half slump. The first base prospect, whose path to the majors cleared up a bit with the trade of Nick Longhi, has reached base multiple times in four of his last five games.

Greenville L 4-6 (F/10)

Lorenzo Cedrola: 1-5, 1 SB

Tyler Hill: 2-5

Roldani Baldwin: 2-5, 1 2B, 1 HR, 1 R, 2 RBI, 1 K

Darwinzon Hernandez: 3.2 IP, 7 H, 4 R, 1 BB, 5 K

The Red Sox are being extra cautious with Hernandez’ workload, which makes all the sense in the world given that he’s only 20 years old and is in his first full season. Despite giving up a bunch of runs in this one, it was still encouraging to see him rack up strikeouts again as he was earlier in the year.

Lowell W 3-1

Yoan Aybar: 1-4, 2 RBI, 1 K, 1 E

Garrett Benge: 2-3

Samuel Miranda: 2-3, 1 R

Tanner Nishioka: 2-3, 1 R, 1 RBI, 1 E

Dakota Smith: 6 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 0 BB, 4 K

GCL Red Sox L 3-5

Bobby Dalbec: 0-3, 1 BB

Tyler Esplin: 1-4, 1 K

Cole Brannen: 2-3, 1 BB, 2 R, 1 SB

Ricardo Cubillan: 0-1, 3 BB, 1 R

Dalbec continues his rehab assignment with another disappointing day own on the complex. Still, it’s just the fact that he’s playing that is most important. Meanwhile, Brannen has his first big day as a professional.

DSL Red Sox G1 W 1-0

Freiberg Marin: 2-3, 1 RBI

Andres Jimenez: 5 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 6 K

DSL Red Sox G2 L 5-6 (F/10)

Alexander Martinez: 0-3, 1 BB, 2 R, 1 RBI
