Red Sox Minor Lines: Bobby Dalbec does it again

New, comments

What else is new?

Pawtucket L 10-12

Chris Owings, SS: 2-4, 1 2B, 3 RBI

Rusney Castillo, CF: 0-4, 1 BB

Sam Travis, 1B: 1-5, 1 R, 3 K, 1 E

Bryce Brentz, DH: 2-5, 1 2B, 1 R, 2 K

Jantzen Witte, 3B: 2-5, 1 HR, 2 R, 1 RBI, 1 K

Cole Sturgeon, LF: 2-5, 2 R, 2 RBI

Josh Tobias, 2B: 2-5, 2 R

Óscar Hernández, C: 4-5, 1 2B, 1 HR, 2 R, 4 RBI, 1 K

Ryan Weber: 5 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 2 BB, 5 K (92 pitches)

Tyler Thornburg: 1 IP, 1 H, 2 R, 0 BB, 3 K (21 pitches)

This was a pretty brutal loss for Pawtucket, who was leading by four heading into the ninth when Jordan Weems — a former catcher who converted to pitching a few years ago — allowed a whopping six runs in a walk-off loss. Sticking with the pitching, Tyler Thornburg is quickly approaching the end of his rehab clock, and it’s hard to imagine they would put him back on the major-league roster. So, that means they’ll either designate him for assignment or put him back on the IL to restart his clock. On a more positive note, Hernández had himself a hell of a game in his first start since being taken off the 40-man roster.

Portland W 6-3

Jarren Duran, CF: 1-5, 1 2B

C.J. Chatham, SS: 1-4, 1 R

Bobby Dalbec, DH: 1-3, 1 HR, 1 BB, 1 R, 2 RBI

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

Brett Netzer, 2B: 3-4, 1 2B, 2 R, 1 RBI

Luke Tendler, RF: 2-4, 1 2B, 1 HR, 1 R, 3 RBI

Kutter Crawford: 6 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 3 BB, 9 K (98 pitches)

Eduardo Bazardo: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 4 K (32 pitches)

What else is there to say about Dalbec’s power at this point. This homer gives him 19 on the year and five in his last six games. The pitching was the bigger story here, though, with Crawford and Bazardo combining for eight strong innings. Crawford had been struggling a bit in his first couple starts at Double-A, but he settled in very nicely here and showed off some of the swing and miss that had been prevalent in the lower minors. Bazardo, meanwhile, just continues to shove in whatever role he’s asked to serve.

Salem L 5-6

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

Ryan Fitzgerald, SS: 1-5, 1 R, 4 K

Marcus Wilson, CF: 1-3, 1 BB, 1 R, 1 K

Dylan Hardy, LF: 2-2, 1 2B, 1 BB, 2 RBI, 1 SB

I’ve....really got nothing to say about this one.

Greenville L 7-8

Cole Brannen, CF: 0-5, 1 R, 1 SB

Tyler Esplin, RF: 1-5, 1 R

Triston Casas, 1B: 1-3, 2 BB, 1 RBI, 1 K

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

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

Grant Williams, SS: 2-3, 1 BB, 1 RBI

Brayan Bello: 5 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 5 BB, 4 K (85 pitches)

The good news here is that Casas was back in the lineup for Greenville following a five-game absence, and he got through the whole game. It’s still not entirely clear what kept him out, but fortunately it wasn’t too serious. In more good news, Lozada had himself a huge game. The infielder isn’t a big-time prospect and is repeating the level, but he did perform well in short-season leagues when he first turned pro.

Lowell W 5-3

Gilberto Jimenez, CF: 2-3, 1 2B, 1 BB, 1 R, 1 RBI, 1 CS

Jaxx Groshans, C: 0-4, 1 K

Joe Davis, DH: 2-4, 2 RBI

Nicholas Northcut, 3B: 0-3, 1 BB, 1 R, 1 E

Marino Campana, LF: 1-4, 1 HR, 1 R, 2 RBI, 3 K

Nick Decker, RF: 0-3, 1 K

Antoni Flores, SS: 0-3, 1 K

Lowell won on their second consecutive walk-off hit, with Campana playing the hero this time with a two-run shot to break a tie and send the Spinners home happy. It’s Jimenez at the top of the lineup that is really standing out, though. After another big game he is hitting .386/.422/.474. On the other end of the spectrum, Flores is struggling mightily to start the year but the reports from Lowell are still positive.

GCL L 4-5

Dominic D’Alessandro, 1B: 2-4, 1 BB, 1 R

Danny Diaz, 3B: 1-4, 1 BB, 2 R, 1 RBI, 1 K

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

Jacob Herbet, DH: 3-5, 1 RBI, 2 K

Bramdon Perez, LF: 2-5, 1 K

D’Alessandro should probably head up to Lowell, if for no other reason than out of mercy for GCL pitchers.

DSL 1 L 3-8

Eduardo Lopez, CF: 3-5, 2 R, 1 SB, 1 E

Eduardo Vaughan, RF: 3-5, 1 HR, 1 R, 2 RBI, 1 K

DSL 2 W 3-2

Angeudis Santos, SS: 2-5, 1 RBI

Andres Gari, C: 2-4, 1 R

Wilmer Perez, 3B: 2-4, 1 2B, 1 R

Gregori Custodio, 1B: 2-4, 1 2B, 1 R, 1 RBI
