Red Sox Minor Lines: A clean sweep for the organization

And Michael Chavis has a nice day on rehab

Pawtucket W 5-2

C.J. Chatham, SS: 1-5, 1 2B, 3 K

Michael Chavis, 1B: 3-4, 2 2B

Josh Ockimey, 1B: 1-1, 1 HR, 1 R, 1 RBI

Rusney Castillo, RF: 1-5, 1 2B, 2 K

Bobby Dalbec, 3B: 1-5, 1 HR, 1 R, 1 RBI

Tzu-Wei Lin, 2B: 1-5, 1 HR, 1 R, 1 RBI, 2 K

Gorkys Hernández, CF: 3-4, 1 R, 1 SB

Juan Centeno, C: 2-4, 1 K

Erasmo Ramírez: 6 IP, 8 H, 2 R, 0 BB, 3 K (93 pitches)

Bobby Poyner: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 0 K (8 pitches)

Tanner Houck: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 K (13 pitches)

Travis Lakins: 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 1 K (10 pitches)

It was a good all-around game for Pawtucket, with the rehabbing Chavis highlighting the day. After a rough night in his first rehab game on Friday, he came back swinging on Saturday with a few hits including two for extra bases. As I said yesterday, he’ll likely be back earlier but there’s at least an outside chance the team just waits until September to activate him simply to avoid roster moves. The bullpen was also phenomenal in this game, and there’s a chance we see all three of these guys in September. Houck is the only questionable one on this list.

Portland W 1-0

Jarren Duran, CF: 0-3, 1 BB, 1 K

Tommy Joseph, 1B: 0-4, 3 K

Joey Curletta, DH: 1-4, 3 K

Konner Wade: 7 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 4 K (91 pitches)

Eduard Bazardo: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K (16 pitches)

We haven’t talked a whole lot about Wade, but he is clearly the story from this game. The righty has had a big year in his first season with the Red Sox organization. He was a former Rockies minor leaguer who was cut after the 2017 season and didn’t pitch in affiliated ball last year. Now with the Red Sx, he has pitched 93 13 innings this year with a 2.89 ERA, 61 strikeouts and 16 walks. Those are very good numbers, but keep in mind he’s also 27 years old.

Salem G1 W 6-5 (F/12)

Ryan Fitzgerald, SS: 2-5, 2 R, 3 K

Devlin Granberg, LF/1B: 1-5, 1 R, 2 RBI

Kole Cottam, C: 1-5, 1 HR, 1 R, 2 RBI, 2 K, 1 E

Joan Martinez: 2 IP, 0 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 4 BB, 0 K (28 pitches)

Salem G2 W 5-1

Garrett Benge, 3B: 4-5, 1 2B, 2 R, 3 RBI

Devlin Granberg, 1B: 1-4, 1 R, 1 SB

Grant Williams, 2B: 2-4, 1 R, 1 K

Enmanuel De Jesus: 7 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 7 K (92 pitches)

It’s been kind of a strange season for De Jesus, who like Wade is not really a big-time prospect. De Jesus is quite a bit younger than Wade, though, and has come up with the Red Sox. He got his first taste of Salem at the end of last season and has spent all year in the High-A rotation in 2019. It’s been very up and down, but he’s suddenly starting to strike batters out over the last month with at least seven strikeouts in three of his last four starts and in five of his last ten. Also, Cottam continues to fly a bit under the radar and hit his first homer at the level after recently being promoted.

Greenville W 7-0

Brandon Howlett, 3B: 1-4, 1 BB, 2 RBI, 1 K

Tyler Esplin, RF: 2-4, 1 HR, 1 BB, 1 R, 2 RBI, 1 K

Triston Casas, 1B: 2-4, 1 HR, 1 BB, 2 R, 1 RBI

Hunter Haworth: 7 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 3 BB, 2 K (90 pitches)

Don’t look now, but Casas is heating up to end the year. He’s now hit in eight straight games and in 11 of his last 12. Saturday’s homer did break a long slump in that department, however, with it being his first dinger since July 18. Esplin is also ending the year on fire, a nice sight after he struggled for much of the year.

Lowell W 3-2

Gilberto Jimenez, CF: 4-4, 2 SB

Antoni Flores, SS: 0-4, 1 K

Cameron Cannon, DH: 0-4

Nick Decker, RF: 0-4, 1 K

Stephen Scott, 1B: 1-4, 1 HR, 1 R, 1 RBI

Nicholas Northcut, 3B: 3-4, 1 2B, 2 R, 1 E

Chris Murphy: 3.1 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 2 BB, 2 K (61 pitches)

This was an interesting game for Lowell, with two of their season-long stars being stars again in Jimenez and Murphy. The former has just been absurd this year, now hitting .372 with an .884 OPS. This is a guy switch hitting for the first time ever, too. Murphy wasn’t quite as dominant as he’d been in previous outings, but the still got good results. This is definitely a guy to watch for next spring in Greenville. Seeing a big game from Northcut is also great, with the former highly-touted draftee having a mostly poor season in Lowell.

GCL W 10-3

Ceddanne Rafaela, 3B: 3-6, 2 R, 3 RBI, 1 K

Roldani Baldwin, DH: 3-5, 1 BB, 1 R, 1 RBI, 1 K

Dean Miller, LF: 2-4, 1 HR, 1 R, 3 RBI, 1 K

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

Matthew Lugo, SS: 0-4, 1 BB, 3 K

Bramdon Perez, RF: 2-5, 2 R, 2 K

Karson Simas, 2B: 2-5, 1 R, 1 K

Brock Bell: 2 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 2 K

Jorge Rodriguez: 5 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 0 BB, 7 K

DSL 1 W 8-0

Eddinson Paulino, SS: 2-4, 1 2B, 1 BB, 1 R, 1 RBI

Darel Belen, DH: 3-4, 1 2B, 3 R, 1 K

Albert Feliz, LF: 2-5, 1 2B, 1 R, 1 RBI, 1 K

Eduardo Lopez, CF: 2-4, 1 2B, 1 BB, 1 R, 1 RBI, 1 K

Alex Zapete, 3B: 2-4

Nixson Munoz: 5 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 5 K

DSL 2 W 8-6

Frank Astacio, 3B: 2-5, 1 RBI, 1 K, 1 E

Axel James, LF: 3-5, 1 R, 1 RBI, 1 K

Bryan Gonzalez, CF: 2-4, 1 BB, 1 RBI, 1 K

Henry Morales, RF: 3-4, 3 2B, 3 R, 4 RBI
