By   |  Comments Off on Tuesday Red Sox Farm Report: Top prospect Jason Groome leaves game with reported lat injury; Rafael Devers goes 3-for-4 with Portland

Here’s a look at the action in the Red Sox farm system on Monday.

TRIPLE-A PAWTUCKET RED SOX (2-3): L, 13-5, vs. Syracuse

Starter Kyle Kendrick didn’t have a good outing as he allowed nine runs on 10 hits in six innings of work to take the loss. Syracuse scored seven runs in the fifth and sixth innings combined to blow the game open.

“We’ve got to keep him stretched out because he’s been talked about as major-league depth,” manager Kevin Boles told reporters, as to why he stayed in so long.

— Blake Swihart and Alan Craig each had two hits for Pawtucket at the plate. Craig is having a good start to the season, as he’s 6-for-12 so far this year.

Don’t look now, but Red Sox outfielder Rusney Castillo isn’t useless 03.07.17 at 12:33 pm ET

Rusney Castillo

Rusney Castillo

It’s only 11 at-bats, but considering the way Rusney Castillo started camp, he and the Red Sox will take them.

Castillo was castigated for failing to run out a ground ball at the start of camp — an unforgivable lapse for a player who’s making $72.5 million despite losing his spot on the 40-man roster — but Castillo has bounced back since.

He leads the Red Sox in hitting so far this spring (.545) and is 6-for-11 with three doubles. He has hit the ball with authority in reserve appearances, and will start on Thursday when the Red Sox face the Mets in Port St. Lucie.

“He has gotten some pitches in the zone to handle,” manager John Farrell said. “He’s played well above average defense in center field. He’s starting tomorrow against the Mets. He’s come off the bench almost every game. That’s not an easy thing to do. But in his case, he’s grabbing the at-bats and the reps when they’re available to him. After the lapse on the ball just running it out, he’s been very good, as far as the attention to detail and whatever decisions he’s had to make inside the lines.”

Of course, there’s more to Castillo’s roster aspirations than performance. As we detailed during the offseason, because Castillo has been dropped from the 40-man roster, adding him back in order to activate him would cost the team almost $60,000 a day towards the luxury tax.

Farrell said Castillo should just focus on his performance.

“We recognize that he is not on the roster, so he’s got to perform his way to get back on it,” Farrell said. “If there’s anything he might perceive as restricting him, you’ve just got to outperform it.”

“It really gets pretty simple, honestly,” Farrell added. “For all that we talk about it, for any guy, it’s simple. Just go out and play. That’s easier said than done, but you go out and produce, see what happens. You could say the same about Allen Craig. Both guys are having pretty good springs. I don’t think they’re thinking about their contracts. That’s where they are.”

Monday Red Sox Farm Report: Roenis Elias, Rusney Castillo key PawSox win; Yoan Moncada homers again for Portland 08.29.16 at 9:40 am ET
By   |  Comments Off on Monday Red Sox Farm Report: Roenis Elias, Rusney Castillo key PawSox win; Yoan Moncada homers again for Portland

Here’s a look at the action in the Red Sox farm system on Sunday.

TRIPLE-A PAWTUCKET RED SOX (70-64): W, 6-0, at Syracuse (Nationals)

— Roenis Elias helped the PawSox record their 16th shutout of the season, a new team record. The southpaw tossed six scoreless innings for his team-leading 10th victory. He let up just three hits and struck out six while walking three. Elias, 28, has won three of his last four starts, and now is 10-5 with a 3.78 ERA in 20 appearances with Pawtucket.

— Rusney Castillo led the way at the plate, going 3-for-5 with a triple, a double, an RBI and two runs. He now has three multi-hit performances in his last four games. The 29-year-old outfielder is having a great August, batting .365 with five triples in 22 games this month.

— William Cuevas came in to pitch two scoreless innings after Elias left, letting up no hits and striking out one. It was the first scoreless outing for Cuevas since May 7. He is 6-7 with a 4.27 ERA in 24 appearances.

— Chris Marrero went 2-for-4 with a double, an RBI and a run scored. He now has back-to-back multi-hit games, but he has not homered since Aug. 15. He is slashing .285/.344/.501 with 23 home runs in 123 games.

Friday Red Sox Farm Report: Chris Marrero hits 22nd homer for PawSox; Rafael Devers homers twice for Salem 08.12.16 at 12:23 pm ET
By   |  Comments Off on Friday Red Sox Farm Report: Chris Marrero hits 22nd homer for PawSox; Rafael Devers homers twice for Salem

Here is a look at what happened in the Red Sox farm system on Thursday.

TRIPLE-A PAWTUCKET RED SOX (63-55): W, 6-5, vs. Durham (Rays)

— After suffering a hamstring injury in June, Chris Young began his rehab assignment in Pawtucket on Thursday afternoon. Young went 0-for-2 with a strikeout and eventually was pulled from the game in the sixth inning. Before getting hurt, Young was hitting .277/.338/.508 in 48 games in the big leagues. Young will continue his rehab appearance on Saturday by joining the PawSox in Buffalo.

— The PawSox used the long ball to propel themselves to victory. In the bottom of the eighth inning, Marco Hernandez crushed an opposite-field, two-run home run to tie the game. Henry Ramos then drew a walk, and Chris Marrero followed by hitting his 22nd home run to give Pawtucket the 6-4 lead.

[Chris Marrero] has been terrific,” manager Kevin Boles said. “He’s been our most consistent hitter.”

Marrero has a home run in each of the last two games and has scored a run in each of the past six games. The first baseman finished the contest 1-for-3 with a walk. He’s now hitting .288/.346/.516 in 110 games.

— Rusney Castillo stayed hot by going 1-for-4 with a triple and a run scored. It was Castillo’s third triple in seven games. Castillo had a chance for a multi-hit game, but he was robbed of a home run in the fifth inning. The 29-year-old Cuban is hitting a league-leading average of .407  in his last 14 games.
