Red Sox Minor Lines: Dedgar Jimenez throws a complete game shutout

And....that’s about it.

Pawtucket L 5-6 (F/11)

Tony Renda, 3B: 4-5, 1 R, 1 K, 1 SB

Ivan De Jesus, SS: 2-6, 1 R

Brandon Phillips, 2B: 1-4, 1 RBI, 1 E

Adam Lind, DH: 1-5, 1 BB, 1 R, 1 K

Sam Travis, LF: 2-4, 1 2B, 1 BB, 2 R, 1 RBI

Oscar Hernandez, C: 2-5, 2 RBI, 1 K

Justin Haley: 4.1 IP, 6 H, 5 R, 4 ER, 1 BB, 3 K (73 pitches)

Williams Jerez: 2.2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 4 K (38 pitches)

Renda is not a big name and probably not much of a help to the big-league team. He has, however, been dynamite since his recent promotion to Pawtucket. It’s only six games so obviously we can’t take much from these numbers, but still he’s hitting .481/.500/704. That deserves a shoutout. In more relevant news, Sam Travis has looked better this month.

Portland G1 W 1-0

Josh Ockimey, DH: 0-2, 1 BB, 1 R

Tate Matheny, CF: 2-3

Jordan Betts, 1B: 2-3, 1 2B, 1 RBI

Dedgar Jimenez: 7 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 3 BB, 5 K (99 pitches)

Portland G2 L 0-1

Josh Ockimey, 1B 0-3, 1 K

Jordan Betts, 3B: 2-3, 1 K

Luke Tendler, RF/LF: 1-2, 1 BB, 1 K

Daniel McGrath: 3 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 5 K (50 pitches)

Not a whole lot of action for this doubleheader between Portland and Binghamton, but we did get to see the best outing of Jimenez’ career and his first professional complete game shutout. Of course, it being a seven-inning game helped that. Still, he was great and hopefully this can kickstart what has been a bit of a disappointing season. On the other side. Ockimey continues his slump at the plate.

Greenville L 3-10

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

It’s been a bit of a forgettable year for Castellanos, who had a mini-breakout in 2017. The first baseman (who is getting time in left field this year, as you can see) spent much of this year on the disabled list and has struggled to really get going when healthy. That appears to be changing as he now has a seven-game hit streak and he has multiple hits in three of his last four starts. A hot start to the year would be huge for Castellanos.

Lowell PPD

GCL W 4-3

Ricardo Cubillan, 2B: 2-4, 1 BB, 1 RBI, 1 K

Nicholas Northcut, DH: 1-4, 1 2B

Brandon Howlett, 3B: 2-3, 1 HR, 1 BB, 2 R, 1 RBI

Jonathan Diaz, C: 2-3, 1 2B, 1 BB, 1 RBI

Juan Carlos Abreu, LF: 2-4

Ryan Fernandez: 3 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K

Yoan Aybar: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K

Howlett had himself a day as the 18-year-old who was selected in the 21st round in this summer’s draft continues the hot start to his pro career. He’s now hitting .354/.466/.521 after smacking his first homer of the year. I’d also like to give a shoutout to Aybar, as the converted outfielder has shown some flashes out of the bullpen. He’s allowed just one run over his last six innings and is starting to harness his control.

DSL 1 L 1-2

Gilberto Jimenez, CF: 2-3, 1 BB, 1 K

Breiner Licona, 1B: 1-2, 1 2B, 1 BB, 1 K

DSL 2 L 0-4

Nelfy Abreu, CF: 1-5, 1 2B

Angel Maita, RF 1-3, 1 BB, 1 SB

Oscar Rangel, C: 1-2, 1 2B, 2 BB

I’m going to be honest. I’ve got nothing on the DSL right now. Maybe tomorrow.

Player of the Day: It’s Dedgar Jimenez. I was up past my bedtime last night watching the All-Star Game and I’m tired and so I don’t have anything else to say today. Good game, Dedgar.
