Red Sox Minor Lines: Carson Smith tosses a scoreless inning

Carson Smith with another rehab start, Henry Owens with another Henry Owens start.

Pawtucket L 4-11

Tzu-Wei Lin: 1-4, 1 BB, 1 K

Sam Travis: 2-4, 1 BB, 1 K

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

Blake Swihart: 1-4, 1 HR, 1 R, 3 RBI, 2 K

Deven Marrero: 2-4, 1 HR, 1 R, 1 RBI

Hector Velazquez: 6 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 1 BB, 5 K

Carson Smith: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 0 K

Another rehab outing for Smith, and this time he put together a solid enough line but one that’s hard to get excited about. He didn’t record any strikeouts, and the velocity isn’t back yet. Him getting back to full form this year was always a longshot, but it’s looking even longer now. Meanwhile, Velazquez, Marrero and Swihart have solid games and they are all candidates to come up in a couple of weeks.

Portland G1 L 1-4

Danny Mars; 0-3

Michael Chavis: 1-3

Josh Ockimey: 0-3, 2 K

Josh Tobias: 1-2, 1 2B

Henry Owens: 5.1 IP, 5 H, 4 R, 3 BB, 2 K

Portland G2 L 1-5

Danny Mars: 2-5

Michael Chavis: 1-2, 1 BB

Josh Ockimey: 2-3, 1 R, 1 K

Trevor Kelley: 2.2 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 1 BB, 2 K

After his previous outing was so encouraging, Owens had another Owens-esque outing on Friday. As people will always point out with respect to Owens, the southpaw is still young and there is still time for him to turn things around. That is absolutely true. I’m just not sure it’s ever going to happen with the Red Sox, and I’m really interested to see where he plays in 2018 and how it goes.

Salem L 1-2

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

Austin Rei: 1-3, 1 2B, 1 K

It’s been a really inconsistent year for Matheny, and it’s probably unfair for him to ever be the most exciting position player prospect on a roster. Still, that’s the case with him in Salem right now, so it’s always nice to see him go deep. It was his sixth homer of the year.

Greenville L 8-10

Tyler Hill: 1-3, 1 HR, 2 BB, 1 R, 2 RBI, 1 K

Brett Netzer: 0-4, 1 BB, 1 K, 2 E

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

Bobby Dalbec: 2-4, 1 HR, 1 BB, 2 R, 1 RBI, 2 K, 1 E

The ball was flying in Greenville on Friday night, so much so that even Hill went deep. The outfielder is an exciting player, don’t get me wrong, but power isn’t exactly his strong suit. Dalbec had a pretty typical Dalbec game, showing off both the good and the bad. Meanwhile, Baldwin continues his quietly strong season behind the plate.

Lowell L 1-3

Michael Osinski: 0-4, 1 K, 1 E

Frankie Rios: 0-3, 1 BB, 1 R, 1 K

GCL Red Sox L 4-6

Cole Brannen: 0-3, 1 BB, 1 R, 1 K, 1 SB

Pedro Castellanos: 1-4, 1 2B, 1 R, 1 RBI

Zach Schellenger: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K

Friday was the professional debut for Schellenger, the team’s sixth round pick in this past June’s draft. The Seton Hall product is a relief-only prospect, but there is real excitement here. I’d expect him to get at least an outing or two in Lowell before the year is out and to start next year in Greenville’s bullpen.

DSL Red Sox W 3-1

Willis Figueroa: 2-2, 1 R

Keibert Petit: 0-4, 1 R, 1 SB, 1 CS
