Red Sox Minor Lines: Jalen Beeks shines again

Jalen Beeks and Mike Shawaryn highlight the day.

Pawtucket G1 L 1-3

Rusney Castillo: 0-4

Jhonny Peralta (3B): 1-3, 1 K

Pablo Sandoval (DH): 1-3, 1 K

Bryce Brentz: 1-3, 1 2B, 1 R

Steve Selsky: 1-3

Aneury Tavarez: 0-3, 2 K

Brian Johnson: 3.2 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 1 BB, 2 K

Chandler Shepherd: 1.1 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K

Jamie Callahan: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K

Pawtucket G2 W 2-0

Steve Selsky: 2-3, 1 2B, 1 RBI, 1 K

Bryce Brentz: 0-3, 2 K

Aneury Tavarez: 2-3

Jalen Beeks: 4.2 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 3 BB, 7 K

Brandon Workman: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 3 BB, 3 K

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

Another really impressive outing for Beeks, and the lefty may be the most talked about breakout prospect in the system this year if it weren’t for Michael Chavis. The southpaw hasn’t missed a beat since his promotion to Triple-A and now has a 3.11 ERA with 41 strikeouts and 14 walks in 37 23 innings over seven starts. Meanwhile, Johnson is back in Triple-A and could possibly be called upon as one of the starters in next Saturday’s double-header with the Yankees after Doug Fister’s rough Wednesday night, though I’d be surprised.

Portland L 0-2

Danny Mars: 1-4, 1 SB

Brock Holt (3B): 1-3

Rafael Devers (3B): 0-1

Michael Chavis (DH): 1-4

Josh Tobias: 0-3, 1 K

Holt brings his rehab up to Portland, presumably so he can get some work in the infield. It’s a little crowded in Pawtucket at the moment, in case you hadn’t noticed. He continued to play solidly but isn’t really standing out. Of course, given the potential severity of his injury, his well-being is more important than his numbers.

Salem W 4-0

Josh Ockimey: 1-4, 1 BB, 2 K

Tate Matheny: 3-5, 1 HR, 1 R, 1 RBI, 1 K

Mike Shawaryn: 5 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 5 BB, 9 K

This was the whole Shawaryn show on Wednesday, as he showed both his pros and cons pretty clearly. The strikeout stuff is what draws people in, but he can lose command at times as you can see from the walks and the lack of innings despite allowing only one hit. I’m still high on Shawaryn and have been impressed with his season, but he has things to work on. Meanwhile, another big day for Matheny in the bottom half of the order.

Greenville L 0-3

Lorenzo Cedrola: 1-5

Tyler Hill: 1-4, 1 2B, 1 K, 1 E

Roldani Baldwin: 0-4

Lowell W 5-3

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

Yoan Aybar: 0-4, 1 BB, 1 R, 2 K

Joan Martinez: 2.2 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 4 K

Third round pick Brett Netzer made his pro debut on Wednesday and was solid enough in the game. There aren’t huge expectations around the infielder despite being taken so early, but he’ll be an interesting name to watch for a little while, at least.

GCL Red Sox W 3-0

Tyler Esplin: 2-4, 1 R, 1 RBI

Bobby Dalbec: 2-4, 1 2B, 1 K, 1 SB

Cole Brannen: 0-3

Ritzi Mendoza: 4 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 4 K

It took five games, but Dalbec finally has his first multi-hit day of his rehab assignment. It’s been a rough go of it for the third baseman since returning to action, as he’s only posted a .554 OPS in the GCL in the small sample.

DSL Red Sox W 6-4

Alexander Martinez: 2-3, 2 2B, 3 RBI

Luis Rivero: 3 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K
