Red Sox Minor Lines: Josh Winckowski ends his season on a high note

And Red Sox affiliates go unbeaten on the day.

Worcester W 4-3

Jarren Duran, CF: 1-4, 1 3B, 1 BB, 1 R, 2 K

Franchy Cordero, LF: 1-3, 1 2B, 2 BB, 3 RBI, 1 K

Ronaldo Hernández, DH: 0-4, 2 K

Connor Womg, C: 0-4

Jonathan Araúz, SS: 0-3, 1 BB, 1 R

Josh Winckowski (SP; W): 6 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 3 BB, 7 K (84 pitches)

Phillips Valdez (H): 0.2 IP, 0 H, 1 R, 4 BB, 1 K (30 pitches)

Zack Kelly (H): 0.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K (5 pitches)

Colten Brewer (SV): 2 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 0 BB, 0 K (23 pitches)

This was quite the way for Winckowski to end his season, which in and of itself has been a bit confusing. The righty, who spent most of the year in Portland before being called up to end his season with Worcester, showed real flashes many times throughout the year. And overall, his numbers look solid, but not really great. He finished with a 4.14 ERA in Portland, and over exactly 100 innings he struck out 88 with 30 walks. In his two starts with Worcester he allowed three runs over 12 innings, striking out 13 and walking three. He’s certainly going to be a name to watch next season no matter what, and pitching in Triple-A he should be in the depth conversation. But he needs to be more consistent, and specifically the stuff needs to play up more. He has the skills to miss more bats, and with his command (which is fine, but not spectacular) he’ll need to do that.

DSL Red W 3-2

Luis Ravelo, SS: 0-4, 1 K

Miguel Bleis, CF: 0-3, 1 BB, 1 K, 2 E

Frank Astacio, 1B: 1-1, 1 2B, 2 BB, 2 R

Miguel Rojas, C: 2-2, 1 2B, 1 BB, 2 RBI

Alvaro Mejias (SP): 2.2 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 1 BB, 2 K

DSL Blue W 5-2 (F/7)

Lyonell James, DH: 1-3, 1 R, 1 K

Alex Zapete, 1B: 2-4, 1 R, 1 RBI

Armando Sierra, RF: 1-4, 2 K

Sebastian Guerra, 3B: 1-3, 1 BB, 1 R, 3 SB

Diego Rodriguez, SS: 2-2, 1 2B, 1 BB, 1 R, 1 SB

Stiwar Adames (SP): 3 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 2 BB, 1 K

Henry Morales (W): 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K

Both DSL teams won their penultimate games of the 2020 season, though there wasn’t a ton to write home about. Astacio has been on quite the run to end the season for the Red squad. This is his second go around in the DSL, as he put up a .638 OPS in 2019, but this year he’s hitting .317/.429/.488, and that line in September is .364/.429/.545. For the Blue squad, Morales had a nice day out of the pen. After serving as a hitter in 2019 in the DSL, he’s converted to the mound this year and has a 2.78 ERA over 22 23 innings, striking out 22 but also walking 18. He’s clearly still raw, but the stuff is intriguing.
