Red Sox Minor Lines: Connor Seabold starts his rehab

And the DSL season gets underway.

FCL W 4-3

Brainer Bonaci, SS: 2-2, 1 2B, 3 BB, 1 R, 1 RBI

Eduardo Vaughan, RF: 0-5, 2 K

Blaze Jordan, 1B: 1-5, 1 HR, 1 R, 2 RBI, 2 K

Bryan Gonzalez, DH: 1-4, 2 K

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

Connor Seabold (SP): 2.2 IP, 1 H, 2 R, 3 BB, 7 K

Wilkelman Gonzalez: 5 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 9 K

This was a big day down on the complex, largely because of the starting pitcher. Seabold, who came over from the Phillies last summer in the Brandon Workman trade, has not been able to start this year after dealing with an elbow injury, but started his road back to Worcester here on Monday. It seems the stuff was good enough to get the best of the raw talent down in Florida, judging by both the strikeouts and lack of hits, but he’s still knocking the rust off (as he himself admitted) as far as control goes. In addition to the three walks, he threw two wild pitches and hit a batter. That said, it’s just nice to see him on the mound. Beyond Seabold, Jordan hit his first homer of his pro career, and it was a big one as it walked things off for the Sox. Bonaci also deserves a shoutout, reaching base five times at the top of this lineup. And finally, Gonzalez absolutely shoved bouncing back from a tough outing last time in which he allowed five runs over 1 13 innings. He’s not got 16 strikeouts and two walks over 10 13 innings this year.

DSL Blue W 3-1

Juan Chacon, RF: 1-2, 1 3B, 1 BB, 1 R

Armando Sierra, LF: 1-2, 1 HR, 1 R, 1 RBI

Johnfrank Salazar, SS: 1-2, 1 R, 1 RBI

Yordanny Monegro (SP): 2.2 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 3 BB, 4 K

Irving Medina (W): 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K


The DSL season got underway on Monday as well, although only one of the two Red Sox squads was able to get their game in. Chacon is the player to watch on the Blue squad. The outfielder doesn’t have as much upside as Miguel Bleis, the best player on the Red squad, who got the most money in last year’s signing period, but Chacon got the top bonus back in July of 2019 with a $900,000 bonus. He got off to a nice start here with a triple and a walk. As for the homer hitters, Sierra was a part of last summer’s signing period, getting $150,000 for a bonus, while Salazar was part of Chacon’s class, getting a $400,000 bonus. A tip of the hat to Sox Prospects for the signing information.
