Red Sox Minor Lines: Steven Wright keeps progressing

And Marcus Wilson keeps raking

Pawtucket W 3-0

Gorkys Hernández, CF: 1-4, 1 K, 2 SB

Chad De La Guerra, SS: 0-4, 2 K

Steve Pearce, 1B: 0-4, 2 K

Sam Travis, DH: 0-2, 1 BB, 1 R

Rusney Castillo, RF: 2-3, 1 2B, 1 R

Bryce Brentz, LF: 2-3, 1 HR, 1 R, 3 RBI

Chris Owings, 2B: 1-3, 1 K

Teddy Stankiewicz: 4.2 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 5 K (89 pitches)

Steven Wright: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K (21 pitches)

Bobby Poyner: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K (11 pitches)

Travis Lakins: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K (12 pitches)

This was a good game for the Paw Sox, with the pitching obviously standing out with a combined shutout effort. Wright was the big one here, as the knuckleballer is on the verge of returning to the major-league roster and should be able to do so this week. He’s been looking good in his rehab, and of course the major-league bullpen needs all the help it can get. The big blow offensively was from Brentz, who hit a three-run shot in the seventh that accounted for all of the runs in this game. There’s still some pop in that bat to be sure.

Portland L 1-4

Jarren Duran, CF: 1-4, 2 K

C.J. Chatham, SS: 1-4, 1 2B, 1 K

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

Joey Curletta, 1B: 1-4, 1 HR, 1 R, 1 RBI, 3 K

Denyi Reyes: 6 IP, 9 H, 4 R, 4 BB, 6 K (104 pitches)

Eduard Bazardo: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 2 K (33 pitches)

Portland’s offense is in a major funk right now, with Dalbec struggling a bit in recent games and Duran still having trouble getting going at Double-A. I’m not particularly worried about either guy, to be fair, but it’s frustrating in the moment. On the other side, Reyes is stuck in a funk in which he hasn’t really imploded at all this month and has gone at least six innings in six straight starts, but he’s also allowed at least four runs in three of his last four. Out of the bullpen, Bazardo made his first appearance at Double-A after dominating at Salem. The small righty has done nothing put put up huge numbers since converting to the bullpen on a mostly full-time basis since 2016.

Salem W 4-2

Pedro Castellanos, 1B: 1-4, 1 K, 2 SB

Edgar Corcino, LF: 2-4, 1 2B, 1 R, 1 K

Marcus Wilson, CF: 2-3, 2 HR, 1 BB, 2 R, 3 RBI, 1 SB

Bryan Mata: 5 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 1 BB, 4 K (83 pitches)

There’s something about center field for Salem this year, apparently. That has been Wilson’s spot since Duran’s promotion to Portland, and the former Diamondbacks prospect has been raking in that time. He now has three homers in his last two days and three consecutive multi-hit games, pushing his line at High-A up to .341/.424/.659. Meanwhile, Mata wasn’t exactly dominant but still put together a solid start in what’s been a big year for him.

Greenville W 5-3

Dylan Hardy, RF: 2-4, 1 HR, 1 BB, 3 R, 1 RBI, 1 K

Everlouis Lozada, 2B: 3-4, 1 BB, 1 R, 1 RBI

Kole Cottam, C: 0-5, 1 K

Jordan Wren, CF: 4-5, 1 K, 1 SB

Triston Casas, 1B: 0-4, 1 BB, 2 K, 1 E

Devlin Granberg, DH: 1-4, 1 CS

Brandon Howlett, 3B: 0-4, 1 K

Tyler Dearden, LF: 1-4, 1 HR, 1 R, 1 RBI, 1 K

Logan Browning: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 2 K (15 pitches)

This was a nice win for Greenville, and it was largely due to contributions from guys other than the big names. Hardy, Dearden, Lozada and Wren carried the load in this one. Lozada in particular has been very good for Greenville since joining the roster earlier this month and now has multiple hits in four straight games. Out of the bullpen, Browning just continues to dominate.

Lowell G1 W 2-1

Nicholas Northcut, 3B: 0-2, 1 BB, 1 R, 1 K

Nick Decker, CF: 3-3, 2 2B, 2 RBI, 2 CS

Antoni Flores, SS: 0-2

Aldo Ramirez: 5 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 7 K (77 pitches)

Lowell G2 W 4-2 (F/9)

Jaxx Groshans, C: 1-4, 1 BB, 2 K

Nicholas Northcut, 3B: 1-4, 1 R, 1 RBI

Antoni Flores, SS: 1-4, 1 RBI, 2 K, 1 CS

Gilberto Jimenez, RF: 2-4, 1 R, 1 SB

Yasel Santana: 5 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 2 BB, 6 K (71 pitches)

It was a nice day for the Spinners in their doubleheader, as they picked up a couple of wins. It was the outfield prospects who stood out in these games, with both Decker and Jimenez getting one game apiece. They also had the only two multi-hit games of the day for Lowell. The Spinners also got a pair of strong starting pitching performances, which can be pretty rare at this level.

DSL 1 W 10-9

Nelfy Abreu, CF: 2-4, 1 BB, 1 R, 1 RBI

Alex Zapete, 3B: 2-4, 1 2B, 1 BB, 3 R, 1 RBI, 1 E

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

DSL 2 L 4-7

Bryan Gonzalez, DH: 0-5, 2 K, 1 SB

Andres Gari, C: 2-4, 1 BB, 2 R, 1 SB

Wilmer Perez, 1B: 3-5, 2 RBI

Player of the Day: This was a very good day on the Red Sox farm, but this one has to go to Wilson. The outfielder, as I said, has been raking for Salem and picked up this fake award for the second straight day. He’s gotta get another chance in Portland at some point over the next month or so.
