Worcester SUSP

Portland W 5-4 (F/8)

Jeisson Rosario, CF: 1-4, 1 K, 1 E

Pedro Castellanos, LF: 1-4, 1 2B, 1 R

Devlin Granberg, RF: 2-4, 1 HR, 1 R, 2 RBI

Tyreque Reed, 1B: 1-4, 1 2B, 1 R, 1 K

Hudson Potts, 3B: 1-4, 1 2B, 1 R, 1 RBI, 1 K

Ronaldo Hernández, C: 1-4, 1 RBI

Brayan Bello (SP): 4.2 IP, 5 H, 4 R, 1 BB, 9 K (96 pitches)

Zach Schellenger (W): 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 2 K (17 pitches)

Joan Martinez (H): 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 2 K (27 pitches)

Zack Kelly (SV): 1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 3 K (20 pitches)

Rain was a factor all over the system on Saturday — including in the majors, as we know — and for Portland it resulted in a shortened victory. There was plenty to like at the plate, including Granberg doing it yet again (he’s got a .996 OPS on the season) and the whole lineup combining for six extra-base hits, all coming from different players. But it was the pitching that merits the most conversation here, starting with Bello. The fast-rising Red Sox prospect had electric stuff combined with good control in this one, but judging by the box score he just found too much of the plate too often. Still, all in all this was a strong outing when you take the peripherals into account. And then in the bullpen, Schellenger made his return to Portland while Martinez and Kelly put up strong showings as well to close it out. Kelly in particular deserves a shoutout, as he’s been great all year and dropped his ERA to 1.13 with the outing.

Greenville PPD

Salem L 4-8 (F/11)

Nick Yorke, DH: 1-4, 1 BB, 1 K, 2 CS

Ceddanne Rafaela, SS: 2-4, 1 2B, 1 R, 1 K, 1 E

Stephen Scott, LF: 0-3, 2 BB, 1 R, 1 K

Nicholas Northcut, 1B: 0-3, 2 BB, 1 R

Antoni Flores, 3B: 1-5, 2 RBI, 1 K

Jeremy Wu-Yelland (SP): 1.1 IP, 4 H, 2 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 3 K (43 pitches)

This was a long, tough loss for Salem, and a tough day overall for their starter in Wu-Yelland. The lefty has had a bit of a strange start to his pro career, showing some big flashes but never really being able to truly string together strong outings. In this one, he got into some of his own trouble in the first with poor command, and was also let down by his defense throughout the outing. All in all, it was one to forget. We should also mention Flores getting the start here, having been promoted from the complex for his first appearance in full-season ball.

FCL W 15-2

Brainer Bonaci, SS: 2-5, 1 HR, 1 BB, 2 R, 4 RBI, 3 K, 1 SB, 1 E

Eddinson Paulino, 3B: 2-5, 1 BB, 1 R, 2 K

Eduardo Vaughan, CF: 0-3, 1 BB, 1 R

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

Freddy Valdez, RF: 0-3, 1 BB, 2 R, 1 RBI, 1 K

Bryan Gonzalez, LF: 2-5, 2 HR, 2 R, 5 RBI, 2 K

Naysbel Marcano, C: 3-4, 1 2B, 2 R, 1 RBI

Karson Simas, 2B: 2-4, 2 BB, 1 R, 2 RBI

Connor Seabold (SP): 3 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 5 K

Juan Daniel Encarnacion (W): 5 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 6 K

There was a whole lot going on here in this blowout victory for FCL, but we have to start on the mound with Seabold. The prospect was making his second rehab appearance on the complex, and after showing strong stuff but some rust with his command the first time out, it doesn’t appear that was much of an issue this time around. He allowed just a single and a double, and he should be able to move up the ladder for his next start, even if he’s not ready to get all the way back up to Worcester. As for Encarnacion, he’s just coninuing a great start to his year. He’s now down to a 0.69 ERA over 14 innings, striking out 14 and walking only one. And then at the plate, they got two homers from Gonzalez, who is a very underrated power-hitting prospect in this system, as well as from Bonaci. The latter had some hype coming into the year, and is starting to get the bat going after a slow start to his season.

DSL Red L 5-10

Allan Castro, DH: 2-5, 1 3B, 2 R, 1 K

Enderso Lira, C: 2-5, 1 2B, 1 RBI, 1 E

Albertson Asigen, CF: 2-5, 1 2B, 2 R, 1 K

Elvys Castro, LF: 2-4, 1 RBI, 1 CS

Cesar Ruis (SP): 2 IP, 2 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 3 K

DSL Blue W 10-5

Johnfrank Salazar, SS: 1-4, 1 R, 3 RBI

Alex Zapete, 1B: 2-3, 2 BB, 2 R, 1 RBI

Miguel Rojas, C: 2-4, 1 2B, 1 R, 2 RBI

Jackson Camejo, DH: 2-2, 1 RBI, 1 CS

Yordanny Monegro (SP): 3 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 3 BB, 4 K

If you haven’t figured it out yet, these two DSL teams actually played each other in this game, which I guess I forgot is a thing that happens. But anyway, there’s not too much to take away form this one in my estimation beyond a second straight good game from Castro and the weirdness of complex baseball.
