Red Sox Minor Lines: Rafael Devers makes a rehab appearance

And Kutter Crawford gets back on track.

Pawtucket W 5-3

Tzu-Wei Lin, SS: 1-5, 1 2B, 1 K, 1 E

Rafael Devers, 3B: 1-3, 1 2B, 1 R, 1 K

Christian Vazquez, DH: 2-4, 1 R, 1 RBI, 1 K

Brandon Phillips, 2B/3B: 1-4, 1 2B, 1 R, 2 K

Rusney Castillo, CF: 1-4, 1 2B, 1 R, 1 RBI

Tony Renda, LF: 1-3, 1 2B, 1 BB, 1 RBI, 1 K

Josh Ockimey, 1B: 1-3, 1 BB, 1 RBI, 2 K

Dan Butler, C: 3-4, 1 HR, 1 R, 1 RBI

Mike Shawryn: 6 IP, 1 H, 2 R, 2 BB, 4 K (92 piches)

Robby Scott: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 K (24 pitches)

In what may have been his final start of the year, Shawaryn was able to impress one last time. The righty didn’t really bring out the strikeout stuff for this outing, but he limited damage with only one hit and two walks against the Phillies Triple-A club, and he brought his season ERA down to 3.45. His stint with Pawtucket to end the year was up-and-down, but it was a good learning experience against major-league experienced hitters as he prepares to serve as major-league depth himself in 2019.

Portland W 10-9

Jeremy Rivera, SS: 3-5, 3 R

Chad De La Guerra, 3B: 2-4, 1 HR, 2 R, 4 RBI, 2 K

Esteban Quiroz, 2B: 3-5, 1 RBI, 1 K

Bobby Dalbec, DH: 0-5, 1 RBI, 2 K

Jantzen Witte, 1B: 2-4, 1 BB, 1 R, 1 RBI, 1 K

Luke Tendler, LF: 2-4, 1 HR, 2 R, 1 RBI

Speaking of guys who will serve as depth in 2019, Quiroz is a name that many forgot this year. The second baseman had a decent amount of hype heading into the year but injuries derailed his season and his adjustment to life in America. Well, he’s back from the disabled list and he’s killing the ball in Portland. It’s a tiny sample, but he’s now 8-21 with two homers and a double. On the other end of the spectrum, Dalbec is on a cold streak to end his season.

Salem W 10-3

Jagger Rusconi, CF: 2-5, 2 2B, 2 RBI, 2 K

Josh Tobias, DH: 2-5

C.J. Chatham, SS: 2-5, 1 2B, 1 R

Jerry Downs, 1B: 1-3, 1 HR, 2 BB, 3 R, 1 RBI, 1 K

Jake Romanski, C: 1-4, 1 HR, 1 BB, 2 R, 2 RBI

Kutter Crawford: 7 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 3 BB, 6 K (79 pitches)

Crawford hasn’t been able to carry over his Greenville success to Salem, but he’s ending his year on a high note. He may have one more start to go so that could still change. Still, after perhaps his worst outing of the year last time out it was god to see him get deeper into a game than he has all year. He walked a few more guys than you’d like to see, but it was far from a disastrous rate and obviously it didn’t hurt his efficiency.

Greenville L 2-3 (F/11)

Jarren Duran, RF: 1-5, 1 R, 1 RBI, 1 K

Pedro Castellanos, 1B: 2-5, 1 RBI

Alex Scherff: 5 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 0 BB, 2 K (51 pitches)

Speaking of pitchers ending their seasons on the right foot, Scherff is right there. The righty has had what is mostly a lost year, struggling mightily in the first half before spending most of the second half on the disabled list. His ERA is still 5.25 with Greenville in 14 starts this season, but since returning from his injury he’s allowed just two runs in 13 innings over three starts. The strikeouts still aren’t really there, but the results have arrived at least.

Lowell L 0-7

Cole Brannen, CF: 0-4, 2 K

Nicholas Northcut, DH: 0-4, 1 K

Brandon Howlett, 3B: 0-3, 1 BB

Devlin Granberg, 1B: 0-4, 1 K

Tyler Esplin, RF: 2-4, 1 2B

It was....not a good day for Spinners players.

Player of the Day: There were a few good pitching performances on the day and a couple strong days at the plate, but I’ll give this to Kutter Crawford. He just barely edged out Shawaryn and Scherff in what has been the Year of Kutter.
