Red Sox Minor Lines: Two homers for Pedro Castellanos

And Jarren Duran is still heating up.

Pawtucket W 6-5

Marco Hernandez, SS: 3-4, 2 R, 1 K, 1 SB

Chris Owings, 3B: 2-4, 2 RBI, 2 K

Rusney Castillo, RF: 0-4, 1 K

Tzu-Wei Lin, 2B: 2-4, 1 2B, 1 RBI, 1 K

Ryan Brasier: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K (10 pitches)

Mike Shawaryn: 0.1 IP, 1 H, 3 R, 2 BB, 0 K (17 pitches)

Trevor Kelley: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K (10 pitches)

It’s hard, in retrospect, to complain about Sam Travis being kept on the roster in favor of Marco Hernandez right now. Granted, most of us (myself included) complained at the time but Travis has been swinging a good bad against lefties, which is why he was kept. Still, Hernandez was unfairly demoted because of the 25-man roster limit, but he hasn’t stopped hitting. As he bides his time for his next chance in the majors, he is 8-12 in his three games since being sent back to Pawtucket. Oh, and just a two-single day for Owings. Boring!

Portland L 1-4

Jarren Duran, CF: 2-4, 1 2B, 1 R, 1 K

C.J. Chatham, SS: 2-4, 1 E

Bobby Dalbec, 3B: 0-4, 2 K

Joey Curletta, 1B: 0-3, 2 K

Marcus Wilson, LF: 0-3, 3 K

Brett Netzer, 2B: 2-3, 1 K

Konner Wade: 5.2 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 0 BB, 8 K (87 pitches)

Eduard Bazardo: 1.1 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 0 BB, 0 K (35 pitches)

Duran continues to heat up after an extended slump to start his Double-A career. His overall line still doesn’t look great at .251/.310/.299, but he’s hitting much better over the last week or so. Over his last seven games Duran has five multi-hit games and at least one hit in all them. Overall he is 14-25 in that stretch, and is looking more like the Duran that burst onto the national scene early in the year with Salem.

Salem W 7-5

Nick Lovullo, 2B: 2-5, 2 R

Ryan Fitzgerald, SS: 1-3, 1 BB, 1 R

Pedro Castellanos, 1B: 2-4, 2 HR, 2 R, 5 RBI

Jhonathan Diaz: 6 IP, 9 H, 4 R, 3 ER, 0 BB, 3 K (90 pitches)

This was a big game for the Salem offense, and specifically for Castellanos. The first baseman matched the RBI total of his opponent all by himself thanks to a pair of home runs. If someone had only seen him in batting practice, by all accounts they would believe he is among the top power hitters in this system. Instead, Saturday actually doubled his season home run total. Now, part of that is playing in a killer park for hitters in Salem, but Castellanos has always had issues translating his power into games. There’s still some intrigue here, and these kind of games remind us why.

Greenville L 3-5

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

Devlin Granberg, DH: 1-3, 2 BB, 1 R, 2 K

Kole Cottam, C: 2-4, 1 BB, 2 R, 1 K

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

Tyler Dearden, LF: 3-5, 2 RBI, 2 K

Chris Machamer: 4.1 IP, 7 H, 4 R, 4 BB, 4 K (90 pitches)

This was a tough game for Machamer, who pitched well in his first three innings before giving up all of his runs in the next 1 13 frames. It’s been a big of a tough year for last year’s 16th round pick, who got off to a hot start but has been extremely inconsistent after that. In better news, Cottam has quietly put together a solid year as Greenville’s catcher. There is still work to be done defensively, but he’s hitting .257/.376/.405 in his first full season as a pro.

Lowell L 1-4

Gilberto Jimenez, CF: 1-4, 1 K

Cameron Cannon, 2B: 1-4, 1 R, 1 K

Nicholas Northcut, 3B: 0-4, 2 K

Jaxx Groshans, DH: 0-3

Nick Decker, RF: 0-3

Antoni Flores, SS: 1-3

Chris Murphy: 4 IP, 7 H, 2 R, 0 BB, 3 K (60 pitches)

It’s been a very inconsistent year for pretty much everyone in this stacked Lowell lineup, which is to be expected when you’re talking about a lineup full of teenagers and recently drafted college players. Scouting the statline exclusively is obviously always a silly idea, but it’s particularly silly in these lower levels. We’re seeing the growing pains for all of these guys, and the key will be identifying the weaknesses and seeing how they are attacked in full-season ball in 2020.

GCL L 13-14

Dominic D’Alessandro, 1B: 2-5, 1 BB, 1 R, 2 K

Fabian Andrade, LF: 2-2, 1 BB, 4 R, 1 RBI

Matthew Lugo, DH: 1-6, 2 R, 2 K

Kleiber Rodriguez, C: 3-4, 2 2B, 5 RBI

Caleb Ramsey, CF: 2-5, 1 R, 2 RBI, 2 K

DSL 1 W 15-0

Brainer Bonaci, SS: 2-4, 1 HR, 2 R, 2 RBI, 1 SB

Eduardo Vaughan, RF: 2-5, 1 BB, 2 R, 2 RBI, 1 CS

Nelfy Abreu, CF: 2-5, 2 R, 1 SB

Carlos Sanchez, 1B: 3-5, 1 2B, 1 R, 1 RBI, 1 K

Alixandri Alvarez, 2B: 4-5, 1 2B, 2 R, 4 RBI, 1 CS

Nixson Munoz: 6 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 5 K

DSL 2 L 4-5

Luis Mota, 3B; 2-6, 4 K

Denny Daza, 2B: 2-4, 2 RBI, 1 K, 1 E

Bryan Gonzalez, RF: 2-5, 1 E
