Red Sox Minor Lines: They got a couple wins

That’s a victory these days

Pawtucket L 1-8

Rusney Castillo, RF: 0-4

Ivan De Jesus, 2B: 2-4, 1 RBI, 1 K, 1 SB, 1 E

Adam Lind, 1B: 0-3, 1 BB

Sam Travis, LF: 0-3, 2 K

Chandler Shepherd: 4.2 IP, 4 H, 6 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 5 K (88 pitches)

Shepherd is starting to cool off a bit after a hot run through May and early June. The righty still hasn’t been bad of late, but he had allowed one or zero earned runs in seven of nine starts at one point. Now, he’s allowed three earned runs in each of his last two outings and three of his last four. He’s also combined for 7 13 innings over his last two.

Portland PPD

Salem L 3-8

Santiago Espinal, SS: 0-1

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

C.J. Chatham, DH 2-5, 1 2B, 2 K

Bobby Dalbec, 3B: 0-4, 4 K

Darwinzon Hernandez: 4.2 IP, 4 H, 5 R, 3 ER, 3 BB, 8 K (102 pitches)

Obviously, Espinal only had one at bat in this game because he was involved in trade talks with Toronto and is now being sent to the Blue Jays organization. It’s unclear if there were hugs, but this turn of events did end a 15-game hit streak for the shortstop. Further down the lineup, there’s not much to say about Dalbec’s day besides yikes. And Hernandez had his strikeout stuff working but inconsistent command continues to be an issue.

Greenville G1 L 5-6

Lorenzo Cedrola, LF: 1-5, 1 2B, 1 R, 1 K

Marino Campana, RF: 1-4, 1 HR, 1 R, 3 RBI, 2 K

Kervin Suarez, CF: 1-2, 2 BB, 1 R, 1 K

Greenville G2 W 5-3

Lorenzo Cedrola, CF: 0-4, 1 K

Marino Campana, RF: 1-4, 1 HR, 1 R, 1 RBI, 1 K, 1 E

Victor Acosta, LF 1-1, 1 2B, 2 BB, 1 R, 1 SB

Pedro Castellanos, DH: 1-2, 1 BB, 1 R, 1 K

Jhonathan Diaz: 5 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 7 K (81 pitches)

A win! This is the first win I’ve written about in two days, and it’s thrilling. Not really, but it’s nice. Diaz continues to have an underratedly strong year on the mound in Greenville, Acosta continues to have a year that I am impressed by and Campana is showing off some sporadic power with a home run in each of Thursday’s two games.

Lowell PPD

GCL W 5-2

Ricardo Cubillan, 1B: 2-5, 1 RBI, 1 K

Nicholas Northcut, 3B: 0-4, 1 K

Jonathan Diaz, DH: 2-4, 1 R, 1 K

Juan Carlos Abreu, LF: 2-3, 1 3B, 1 BB, 2 R, 1 K

Chad Hardy, RF: 2-4, 1 HR, 1 R, 3 RBI, 1 CS

Rayniel Adames: 5 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 2 K

Another rough day for Northcut, who has started his professional career with an .053 batting average. Hardy, meanwhile, is having a solid start to his third professional season, all of which have come at the GCL. This was his third homer of the year (his first two both came in the season opener) and he’s hitting .241/.290/.552.

DSL 1 W 11-4

Brandon Rincones, 2B: 2-5, 1 R, 1 RBI, 1 K

Ceddanne Rafaela, 3B: 2-5, 1 3B, 1 R, 3 RBI, 1 K

Erick Flores, C: 1-4, 1 2B, 1 BB, 2 R, 2 RBI

Miguel Suero: 4 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 1 K

DSL 2 L 9-10 (F/11)

Nelfy Abreu, 2B: 0-5, 1 BB, 2 R, 2 K, 1 SB

Luis Hernandez, SS: 0-3, 3 BB, 1 R, 2 K

Angel Maita, DH: 2-5, 1 3B, 2 R, 3 RBI, 1 K

Danny Diaz, 1B: 1-4, 1 R, 2 RBI, 1 K

Rafaela and Maita continue to be the most impressive players on their respective DSL rosters, and there’s no signs of that changing. Diaz, of course, is still the one on whom most of our eyes are.

Player of the Day: Even though they got a couple of wins it was another underwhelming day in the system. Marino Campana did have a pair of home runs, though, and that’s enough to give the 20-year-old this award. His .238/.304/.494 line isn’t great, but it’s almost entirely because of the batting average. He’s walking a decent amount while hitting for legitimate power with 11 home runs on the year. He’ll need to improve his contact moving forward to maximize his potential, but there’s a chance at a solid player here.
