Red Sox Minor Lines: Bryan Mata is getting tired

A rough day for Bryan Mata, a solid one for Jalen Beeks.

Pawtucket W 4-2

Tzu-Wei Lin: 1-4, 1 HR, 1 BB, 1 R, 2 RBI, 1 K

Sam Travis: 0-4, 1 BB, 1 R

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

Blake Swihart: 0-4, 2 K

Deven Marrero: 1-3

Jalen Beeks: 7 IP, 7 H, 2 R, 1 BB, 5 K

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

Another day, another really solid outing for Beeks. I can’t really imagine a scenario in which he gets any major-league starts this year besides possibly getting one at the very end of the year if the Red Sox are fortunate enough to wrap things up early. Even so, it could be worth it to add him to the 40-man soon and get him some bullpen action in September. They would have to make some tough cuts for this to happen, so perhaps they will just wait until the winter to make the move. Either way, his time in the minors is coming to a close.

Portland G1 SUSP

Portland G2 PPD

Salem L 6-7 (F/12)

Tate Matheny: 2-6, 1 HR, 1 R, 2 RBI, 2 K

Austin Rei: 0-4, 1 BB, 3 K

Roniel Raudes: 5 IP, 7 H, 4 R, 2 BB, 5 K

This wasn’t the best of starts for Raudes, though honestly this kind of seems like a typical line for the righty this season. His run totals have fluctuated a bit from start-to-start, but the strikeout and walk numbers have been around this ratio all year long. He’s still a really interesting pitcher who I really want to stay in the organization through the winter so I can see him in person in Portland in 2018.

Greenville L 4-7

Tyler Hill: 0-3, 1 K

Brett Netzer: 0-4

Roldani Baldwin: 0-3, 1 BB, 1 R, 1 K

Bobby Dalbec: 0-2, 2 BB, 2 R, 1 K

Bryan Mata: 4.1 IP, 9 H, 7 R, 6 ER, 4 BB, 3 K

That’s an ugly line for Mata, though he can be forgiven as the 18-year-old is wrapping up his first full season as a professional and he’s likely showing some signs of fatigue. Don’t be surprised if his lines are underwhelming for the rest of the year and/or he’s shut down a little early. What’s more disappointing is the offense, who can’t seem to put together consistent production. Baldwin has had an encouraging year, but the rest have been inconsistent at the plate.

Lowell L 0-5

Michael Osinski: 1-4, 1 K

Garrett Benge: 1-3, 1 BB, 1 CS

Jake Thompson: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 K

GCL Red Sox L 2-8

Pedro Castellanos: 0-4, 1 K

Tyler Esplin: 1-4, 1 RBI, 1 K, 1 SB

DSL Red Sox W 7-6

Willis Figueroa: 1-4, 1 BB, 2 R, 1 RBI, 1 K

Keibert Petit: 1-3, 2 BB, 2 R, 1 RBI
