Red Sox Minor Lines: Another homer for Michael Chavis

Pawtucket W 8-5

Tzu-Wei Lin, CF: 2-5, 1 BB, 1 RBI, 1 K

Rusney Castillo, DH: 0-5, 2 K

Brandon Phillips, 2B: 0-5, 1 K

Sam Travis, LF: 0-3, 2 BB, 1 R

Michael Chavis, 3B: 2-5, 1 2B, 1 HR, 3 R, 2 RBI

Josh Ockimey, 1B: 3-5, 1 HR, 1 R, 2 RBI, 1 K

Mike Miller, SS: 3-5, 1 R, 1 SB

Dan Butler, C: 3-4, 1 2B, 1 BB, 2 RBI

Justin Haley: 6 IP, 8 H, 4 R, 2 BB, 6 K (97 pitches)

Marcus Walden: 1 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 0 K (31 pitches)

Bobby Poyner: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K (23 pitches)

Another day, another big game for Chavis. The top prospect in the Red Sox system, he is reminding everyone why he was on top-100 lists prior to the season. With his latest home run he now has two in two days in Pawtucket and nine total over 40 games this year. Expect him on most, if not all, top-100 lists this year as well.

Portland W 4-3

Jeremy Rivera, SS: 2-4, 1 2B, 1 R

Esteban Quiroz, 2B: 1-3, 1 HR, 1 BB, 2 R, 3 RBI

Bobby Dalbec, 3B: 0-4, 1 K

Dedgar Jimenez: 6 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 3 BB, 5 K (96 pitches)

Darwinzon Hernandez: 1 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 2 K (32 pitches)

There were a few notable trends here. For one thing, Dalbec is struggling a bit and showing that, despite the ceiling, there is more downside in his game than Chavis’. He has only three hits in his last six games with ten strikeouts in that span. Quiroz, meanwhile, hit a home run in just his second game with the SeaDogs. On the mound, Hernandez came out of the bullpen yet again, and it seems this will be his role for the rest of the year. Hopefully, this isn’t a long-term shift. I’m not ready to give up on the lefty as a starter.

Salem L 2-8

C.J. Chatham, SS: 2-3, 1 R

Mark Montgomery: 0.2 IP, 3 H, 1 BB, 0 K (23 pitches)

Durbin Feltman: 1 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 0 BB, 2 K (27 pitches)

This may have been Feltman’s first true bad outing in his pro career, though again it’s hard to tell from a box score. Despite allowing to runs, he only allowed two single, though he also hit a batter. He did throw more strikes than balls, but it was close at 15 to 12. Obviously, whether or not this was truly a bad outing isn’t a huge deal. The future still looks bright for the righty.

Greenville W 4-3 (F/10)

Jarren Duran, RF: 1-4, 1 K, 1 SB, 1 CS/PO

Tanner Nishioka, 3B: 4-4, 2 2B, 1 BB, 2 R

Pedro Castellanos, DH: 3-4, 3 RBI

Eduard Bazardo: 6 IP, 7 H, 2 R, 0 BB, 6 K (89 pitches)

Nishioka has another big game as he appears to be on another hot streak in a year that’s included a full of them. Castellanos has been hitting well for the entire second half, and that continues here. It’s Bazardo I want to talk about, though. He’s impressed since 2016, and while he hasn’t really been on the radar that should be changing soon. This marked his fourth outing in Greenville after posting a 2.36 ERA in Lowell. In A-Ball he has a 2.45 ERA in 22 innings with 21 strikeouts and just two walks. The 22-year-old should be able to start next year in Salem if there’s room in that rotation.

Lowell L 3-4 (F/10)

Lane Milligan, RF: 2-5, 1 3B, 1 R, 1 K

Devlin Granberg, LF: 3-5, 2 2B, 1 R, 1 RBI

Jonathan Ortega, 3B: 3-4, 1 3B, 1 RBI

Another day, another multi-hit effort for Granberg. Make it .317/.399/.460 for the sixth round pick on the year.

GCL L 6-7 (F/13)

Juan Hernandez, CF: 2-4, 1 BB, 1 R, 1 SB

Keibert Petit, 1B: 2-4, 1 2B, 1 R, 3 RBI

Hernandez has been a mainstay in the low minors, having been in the organization since 2013. There’s probably not much here, but he’s been solid atop the GCL lineup with a .399 OBP.

DSL 1 L 2-5

Leonel Jimenez, DH: 2-4, 1 2B, 2 RBI, 1 K

DSL 2 W 7-3

Nelfy Abreu, 2B: 2-5, 2 K

Kleiber Rodriguez, 1B: 2-3, 1 BB, 1 R

Andres Gari, C: 3-3 , 1 2B, 1 BB, 2 R, 4 RBI

Richardson Jimenez: 3 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 5 K

Player of the Day: It’s Tanner Nishioka, despite some other big games from bigger prospects. We’ve talked about this every time he’s won this award this year — which has been a not insignificant number of times — but given his age it’s hard to get too excited despite the results. Still, sometimes guys slip through the cracks and he’s worth paying attention to as long as these numbers continue.
