Red Sox Minor Lines: Durbin Feltman debuts

And Danny Diaz goes deep.

Pawtucket L 4-7

Sam Travis, 1B: 0-4, 1 BB, 3 K

Adam Lind, DH: 1-3, 1 BB, 1 R

Mike Olt, 3B: 2-3, 1 HR, 1 BB, 2 R, 1 RBI, 1 K

Ramon Flores, RF: 3-4, 1 2B, 1 R

Mike Miller, SS: 2-4, 2 RBI, 1 K

Jalen Beeks: 2.1 IP, 6 H, 5 R, 3 BB, 1 K (67 pitches)

Ty Buttrey: 2 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 0 BB, 2 K (19 pitches)

Williams Jerez: 1.2 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 2 K (29 pitches)

Robby Scott: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K (13 pitches)

Well, that’s not what you want to see from Beeks. The good news for the lefty is that Brian Johnson pitched well in his major-league spot start, so Beeks wasn’t pitching for a chance at a promotion on Friday. That being said, the combination of lacking command and strikeout stuff at the same time is never a good look.

Portland L 2-3

Chad De La Guerra, SS: 1-4, 1 R, 1 K

Jantzen Witte, LF: 2-4, 1 2B, 1 RBI

Josh Ockimey, 1B: 0-4, 2 K

Tate Matheny, CF: 1-4, 1 2B

Luke Tendler, DH: 2-4, 1 RBI, 1 K

Teddy Stankiewicz: 6 IP, 6 H, 3 R, 2 ER, 3 BB, 3 K (82 pitches)

Trey Ball: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K (18 pitches)

Travis Lakins: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K (17 pitches)

It was a rough day for Ockimey, who was named an Eastern League All-Star along with pitchers Kyle Hart and Matt Kent, but we’ll focus on the pitching today. Specifically, the relievers. Ball is pretty much a lost cause at this point, but an extremely small part of me still gets a little excited when he has this kind of outing. Lakins is someone I am more legitimately optimistic about, and he tossed his tenth consecutive scoreless inning since joining the bullpen. In fact, this was only the second outing in which he’s allowed a hit.

Salem W 5-3

Tyler Hill, LF: 1-4, 1 R, 1 K

Brett Netzer, 2B: 1-4, 1 R, 1 RBI, 1 K

C.J. Chatham, SS: 0-3, 1 BB, 2 K

Bobby Dalbec, 3B: 2-4, 1 2B, 1 HR, 1 R, 3 RBI, 1 K, 2 E

Daniel Gonzalez: 7 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 2 K (99 pitches)

Jake Cosart: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 K (21 pitches)

It’s been a rough stretch for Dalbec recently, who has regressed a bunch after a hot stretch in May and early June. He’s back to struggling with contact of late, but this game showed why he’s still intriguing. That power still works. Also, I continue to be intrigued by Gonzalez even if I am the only one.

Greenville W 7-0

Lorenzo Cedrola, CF: 3-5, 1 2B, 1 R, 2 RBI, 1 SB

Marino Campana, RF: 2-5, 1 3B, 2 R, 1 RBI, 1 K

Kervin Suarez, 2B: 2-4, 1 3B, 2 R, 2 K

Denyi Reyes: 6 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 6 K (90 pitches)

Kutter Crawford has gotten most of the headlines from this Greenville rotation (and many of those headlines came from me), but as the season goes on it looks more and more like Reyes may be the breakout from this group. After yet another stellar outing the 21-year-old has a 2.04 ERA over 83 23 innings with 86 strikeouts and only 11 walks. That’s....that’s really good.

Lowell G1 W 4-3

Jarren Duran, 2B: 1-3, 1 HR, 1 BB, 1 R, 2 RBI, 1 E

Cole Brannen, CF: 0-2, 1 BB

Kole Cottam, C: 1-3, 1 K

Tyler Esplin, LF: 0-2, 1 BB

Durbin Feltman: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K (17 pitches)

Lowell G2 L 1-9

Jarren Duran, DH: 0-3, 1 K, 1 SB

Feltman finally made his debut on Friday, and he did not disappoint. Obviously we’ve been hearing that he has a chance to make an impact in the majors this season after being drafted a few weeks ago. I remain skeptical of that possibility, but it’s certainly not impossible and he showed he can make quick work of NYPL hitters. Something tells me he won’t be in Lowell very long. Also, Duran went deep and I am starting to really fall for the infielder.

GCL PPD

DSL 1 L 0-4

Gilberto Jimenez, CF 0-3, 1 BB

Brandon Rincones, 2B: 0-3, 1 BB, 1 E

Ceddanne Rafaela, 3B: 1-4, 1 K

Fabian Andrade, LF: 0-2, 2 BB

DSL 2 L 8-9

Angel Gonzalez, LF: 2-4, 1 R, 1 RBI, 1 K, 1 SB

Nelfy Abreu, CF: 1-4, 1 3B, 1 BB, 1 R, 3 RBI

Angel Maita, RF: 1-4, 1 BB, 1 RBI, 1 K

Danny Diaz, 3B: 1-5, 1 HR, 1 R, 1 RBI, 1 K, 1 E

Juan Rojas, 1B: 3-3, 1 BB, 1 R, 2 RBI

Not much doin’ on the DSL 1 squad, but some intriguing days for DSL 2 despite the loss. Diaz goes deep again, giving him six homers just 24 games into the year. That’s a 40-homer pace over 162 games. Abreu and Maita continue to provide solid on-base skills at the top of the lineup as well.

Player of the Day: Juan Rojas, Daniel Gonzalez, Denyi Reyes and Bobby Dalbec were all considered here, but I’m giving this one to Lorenzo Cedrola. The outfield prospect has been good for a second straight year at Greenville and I’d be shocked if he didn’t get a taste of High-A at some point this summer.
