Pawtucket W 6-5
Rusney Castillo: 1-4, 1 R, 2 K
Sam Travis: 2-4, 1 R, 1 CS
Bryce Brentz: 1-3, 1 BB, 1 R, 2 RBI, 1 K
Deven Marrero: 0-3, 1 K
Justin Haley: 6.2 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 0 BB, 10 K
Robby Scott: 1.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 0 K
Noe Ramirez: 1 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 1 BB, 1 K
Have a day, Justin Haley. The Twins Rule 5 draft pick has been outstanding since returning to the Red Sox organization and getting back to starting games. Between him, Jalen Beeks, Brian Johnson and Hector Velazquez, the Red Sox have some enviable Triple-A rotation depth looking ahead to next year. Don’t be surprised if/when at least one of those players is dealt in the upcoming offseason.
Portland W 9-4
Danny Mars: 1-5, 1 R
Michael Chavis: 2-4, 1 HR, 2 R, 2 RBI, 1 K
Josh Ockimey: 2-4, 1 BB, 2 R, 1 K
Josh Tobias: 1-5, 1 2B, 3 RBI, 1 K
Teddy Stankiewicz: 6.2 IP, 8 H, 4 R, 3 BB, 3 K
Trevor Kelley: 1.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 K
Another day, another long ball for Chavis. He now has 12 home runs since getting up to Portland and is up to 29 for the entire season. It’s been a special year, and there’s little doubt at this point that his power is for real. Meanwhile, Ockimey is making a solid first impression at Double-A as the first baseman is hitting .280/.419/.600 since his promotion to Portland.
Salem L 2-3
Tate Matheny: 0-4, 2 K
Roniel Raudes: 5 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 2 BB, 5 K
Austin Glorius: 3 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 0 K
This was a fairly typical day for 2017 Raudes, which isn’t really a bad thing. The 19-year-old hasn’t blown anyone away this year, but he’s been solid enough for someone at his age in High-A. I’d like to see a bit of a step forward before the end of the year and he is presumably promoted to Double-A in 2018, but an avoidance of a backslide is probably the most important thing. Interestingly, this is the seventh straight start in which Raudes has allowed exactly two walks.
Greenville W 6-1
Tyler Hill: 1-3, 2 BB, 1 R, 1 K, 3 SB
Brett Netzer: 1-4, 1 2B, 1 R, 1 RBI, 1 K
Bobby Dalbec: 0-5, 1 R, 1 RBI, 4 K
Tyler Hill might be the most interesting prospect that no one really talks about (though I’d argue that title belongs to teammate Roldani Baldwin). The outfielder has been hitting well this year with a .274/.340/.382 line as a 21-year-old. Most impressive has been his work on the basepaths, as these three stolen bases gave him 37 on the year in just 43 tries. I’m be a little surprised if he didn’t get at least a taste of High-A before the end of the year.
Lowell L 2-7
Michael Osinski: 0-3, 1 BB, 1 K
Yoan Aybar: 0-4, 3 K
GCL Red Sox L 1-4
Blake Swihart (C): 0-3, 1 K
Pedro Castellanos: 1-4, 1 R, 1 K
Everlouis Lozada: 4-4, 1 3B, 1 CS
After one day at first base, Swihart is back behind the plate. I suspect they are going to ease him back into catching and that he’ll have at least one day off behind the plate before getting the pads back on, but it’s encouraging nonetheless to see him back there.
DSL Red Sox W 1-0
