Red Sox Minor Lines: A rare homer for Pedro Castellanos

New, comment

Pawtucket L 1-8

Tzu-Wei Lin, SS: 0-4, 1 K, 1 E

Chris Owings, 2B: 1-4, 1 K

Rusney Castillo, RF: 2-3, 1 2B, 1 BB, 1 SB

Bryce Brentz, LF: 0-4, 1 K

Trevor Kelley: 1.2 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 0 BB, 2 K (26 pitches)

There’s not really a whole lot to say here, as Castillo was really the only PawSox player who came to play on Wednesday. The outfielder is having another solid year in Triple-A, hitting .281/.331/.428.

Portland W 10-4

Jarren Duran, DH: 1-5, 1 BB, 1 R, 2 RBI, 1 K

C.J. Chatham, SS: 0-5, 1 R

Bobby Dalbec, 3B: 0-3, 1 BB, 1 R, 1 SB

Joey Curletta, 1B: 1-4, 1 2B, 1 BB, 1 R

Luke Tendler, RF: 2-4, 1 HR, 2 R, 2 RBI, 1 K

Marcus Wilson, LF: 1-4, 1 BB, 2 R, 1 RBI

I’m not entirely sure how the Sea Dogs ended up with ten runs in this game despite getting “meh” performances from most of their top prospects on the roster. They did have a couple of key guys get on base multiple times including Curletta. The first baseman, who is on the 40-man after being claimed off waivers from Seattle, has been looking solid of late. Since July 5, he’s watched his OPS climb from .622 up to .713.

Salem W 4-2

Ryan Fitzgerald, SS: 1-4, 1 2B, 1 R, 1 K

Pedro Castellanos, 1B: 1-4, 1 HR, 1 R, 2 RBI

Garrett Benge, 3B: 1-3, 1 K

Jhonathan Diaz: 5.2 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 4 BB, 3 K (103 pitches)

Again, it was a fairly boring day despite picking up the win. Castellanos hitting a home run is always notable, though, because it so rarely happens. The number one improvement the first base prospect needs to make is with his in-game power. He shows big-time potential in batting practice but is never able to translate it into games. One big swing for just his second homer of the year is not going to change people’s perception of him, but hopefully it can spark something.

Greenville L 0-4

Cole Brannen, CF 0-4

Brandon Howlett, 3B: 1-4, 1 2B, 2 K, 1 E

Triston Casas, 1B: 0-4

Devlin Granberg, DH: 1-3, 1 K

Tyler Esplin, RF: 0-3

Yoan Aybar: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 4 K (26 pitches)

It was an ugly day for the Drive lineup, who managed just two hits through the entire day. One of them was an extra-base hit for Howlett, which is nice to see at least. The third base prospect continues to look much better since the first six weeks of the season or so. He did miss some time to injury, but has come back as mostly the same guy.

Lowell PPD

GCL W 4-2

Matthew Lugo, SS: 2-4, 1 R, 1 RBI, 1 K

Yoelvis Guedez: 3.1 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K (19 pitches)

DSL 1 W 6-4

Eduardo Lopez, DH: 1-3, 1 BB, 2 R, 1 SB

Darel Belen, RF: 2-3, 1 3B, 1 R, 3 RBI, 1 K, 2 SB

Brandon Rincones, 2B: 2-4, 1 3B, 1 R, 1 RBI

DSL 2 L 2-9

Angeudis Santos, SS: 0-1, 4 BB, 1 K, 1 SB, 1 E
