Red Sox Minor Lines: Carson Smith’s second rehab outing goes better

Also, Michael Chavis goes deep. Again.

Pawtucket W 9-2

Tzu-Wei Lin: 0-5, 1 R

Sam Travis: 1-5, 1 R

Bryce Brentz: 2-4, 1 BB, 2 R, 2 RBI

Steve Selsky: 0-3

Deven Marrero: 2-3, 1 2B, 1 HR, 1 BB, 2 R, 1 RBI

Jalen Beeks: 6 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 6 K

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

Ben Taylor: 0.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 0 K

Smith is the focus in this game as the reliever continues to try and work his way back from Tommy John surgery. The results this time around were infinitely better than his first rehab start, though there is still progress to be made. According to reports from those in attendance, he wasn’t really missing bats and he was topping out at just 91 mph. For reference, he was around 93 mph in 2015. Still, this is a long process and he’s moving in the right direction. Meanwhile, another great start from Beeks and a multi-hit day for Brentz.

Portland W 5-0

Danny Mars: 1-4, 2 RBI

Michael Chavis: 1-4, 1 HR, 1 R, 2 RBI, 2 K

Josh Ockimey: 1-4, 1 R, 1 K

Josh Tobias: 0-4, 1 R, 1 E

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

Another day, another home run for Chavis. I’ve been among the more skeptical of the infielder for much of this year, and I’m still a little wary of the numbers he’s putting up, but it’s hard not to be at least a little exciting. This power is clearly legit, now it’s just a matter of the rest of his game catching up.

Salem W 2-1

Tate Matheny: 0-2, 1 BB, 2 K

Austin Rei: 0-3

Greenville W 5-3

Tyler Hill: 2-5, 1 R, 1 K

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

Brett Netzer: 0-4, 1 R, 1 K

Baldwin continues to put together a really impressive year at the plate, and one that hasn’t really gotten a lot of coverage from me or others around the interwebs. He’s now hitting .294/.326/.521. As a catcher. I expect we’ll hear more about Baldwin this winter and next spring.

Lowell W 4-0

Michael Osinski: 0-4, 1 K

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

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

Another nice day for Thompson in his second career professional start. He got a little more work during the college season than Houck, so the fourth-round pick will likely be eased into action more slowly. Still, it’ll be exciting to see what he can do in 2018.

GCL Red Sox W 5-4

Cole Brannen: 0-4, 1 BB, 2 K

Blake Swihart (1B): 1-5, 1 R

Pedro Castellanos: 3-4, 1 HR, 3 R, 3 RBI
