Red Sox Minor Lines: Tzu-Wei Lin starts a rehab assignment

New, 4 comments

Pawtucket L 2-6

Gorkys Hernández, CF: 1-4, 1 R, 2 K

Tzu-Wei Lin, SS: 0-2

Chad De La Guerra, 3B/SS: 2-3, 1 2B, 1 HR, 1 BB, 1 R, 2 RBI

Bryce Brentz, DH: 0-4, 1 K

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

Rusney Castillo, RF: 0-4

Bobby Poyner: 1 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K (20 pitches)

Pawtucket fell behind early in this game and was never able to recover as the offense couldn’t provide much of anything outside of De La Guerra, who has been swinging a hot bat of late. The big news in this game was the presence of Tzu-Wei Lin, who’s been out since May 3 with injury. This is the start of a rehab assignment, though there’s no guarantee he’ll be back in the majors when the assignment is done. That’ll take some time, though, as he only played in half of this game.

Portland L 5-6

Jarren Duran, CF: 0-4, 1 BB, 2 K, 1 SB, 1 E

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

Joey Curletta, 1B: 0-2, 2 BB, 1 R, 1 K

Brett Netzer, 2B: 1-3, 1 HR, 1 BB, 2 R, 2 RBI

Tate Matheny, RF: 2-4, 1 R

Luke Tendler, LF: 2-3, 1 2B, 1 BB, 1 RBI

Darwinzon Hernandez: 1 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 2 K (21 pitches)

Durbin Feltman: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K (28 pitches)

This was a tough loss for the Sea Dogs, who fell down 6-2 after two-and-a-half innings but couldn’t come all the way back. Dalbec did hit a big homer in the fifth to bring Portland to within one and tie himself for the league lead in dingers, but it wasn’t quite enough. Hernandez, meanwhile, only went one inning with some speculation he could be called up to the majors on Sunday. Later, Feltman tossed a couple scoreless innings as he tries to go on a run to earn his own promotion later this summer.

Salem L 3-7

Victor Acosta, DH: 2-4, 1 2B, 1 RBI

Ryan Fitzgerald, SS: 1-4, 1 RBI, 2 K, 1 CS, 1 E

Pedro Castellanos, 1B: 0-3, 2 K, 1 E

Marcus Wilson, CF: 2-4, 1 R

Charlie Madden, C: 2-3, 1 BB, 1 R

Eduard Bazardo: 1 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 3 K (31 pitches)

There’s not much to say here, as the wind has sort of been taken out of Salem’s sails with Jarren Duran no longer on the roster. There are still some flashes here and there, but the consistency just isn’t there.

Greenville W 8-2

Cole Brannen, CF: 3-5, 1 R, 1 RBI, 2 SB

Tyler Esplin, RF: 1-5, 1 2B, 1 R, 2 RBI, 1 K

Devlin Granberg, DH: 1-4, 1 BB, 1 R

Triston Casas, 1B: 1-5, 1 R, 3 K

Kole Cottam, C: 3-3, 2 2B, 1 BB, 2 R, 2 RBI

Brandon Howlett, 3B: 1-2, 1 BB, 1 RBI, 1 K

Grant Williams, SS: 2-4, 2 2B, 2 R

Chris Machamer: 5 IP, 7 H, 2 R, 0 BB, 3 K (85 pitches)

Logan Browning: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K (14 pitches)

Well then. There were some faces we’re not quite accustomed to coming through for the Drive in a victory on Saturday, with Brannen leading the charge. Perhaps the most disappointing player in the organization this side of Trey Ball, the former second round pick showed up to play in this one with his first three-hit game of 2019. It was just his eighth multi-hit game of the year. Hopefully this can be a spark for the rest of his season.

DSL 1 W 4-1

Brainer Bonaci, SS: 2-4, 1 BB, 1 R, 1 SB

Eduardo Lopez, DH: 1-4, 1 BB, 1 R, 1 RBI, 1 K, 1 SB

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

Eduardo Vaughan, LF: 2-4

Eddinson Paulino, 2B: 2-4, 1 3B, 1 R, 1 RBI, 1 E

DSL 2 W 7-2

Bryan Gonzalez, RF: 1-4, 1 HR, 1 R, 1 RBI, 2 K

Andres Ortuna: 4 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 0 BB, 4 K

I’m going to level with you. I’m running late and don’t have much to say about the DSL today. Until next time!
