Boston Red Sox injuries: Blake Swihart to take grounders at first base, third base in return from ankle injury

Blake Swihart will take ground balls at first base and third base after another ankle injury, which is making it hard for him to catch consistently.

Boston Red Sox: Dan Butler becoming real depth catcher

The Boston Red Sox catching depth heading into the year was almost non-existent. Sandy Leon came out of Spring Training as the starter, with Christian Vazquez filling the role of backup. After them, Blake Swihart was a great depth piece in Triple-A. That was it though, or at least it seemed to be. People forget about Dan […] The post Boston Red Sox: Dan Butler becoming real depth catcher appeared first on OutsidePitchMLB.

Red Sox Minor Lines: Jason Groome shines, Henry Owens does not

Red Sox Minor Lines: Jason Groome shines, Henry Owens does not

There was a little bit of everything on the farm on Tuesday. Pawtucket L 3-5 Jhonny Peralta (DH): 1-4, 1 HR, 1 R, 1 RBI, 1 K Pablo Sandoval (3B): 1-4, 1 K Steve Selsky: 0-4, 2 K Blake Swihart: 0-4, 1 K Aneury Tavarez: 0-3 Eduardo Rodriguez: 4 IP, 4 H, 4 R, 5 BB, 5 K In his second rehab start, Rodriguez got just about the same caliber of results as he did in his last one in Portland. As we said last time, though, it’s not the results that matter here. There weren’t any noticeable drop-offs in his stuff and as long as he doesn’t suffer a physical setback this will be a fine day. With...

Henry Owens walks 6 in first inning of first start after Boston Red Sox demote him from Pawtucket to Portland

Henry Owens walks 6 in first inning of first start after Boston Red Sox demote him from Pawtucket to Portland

Henry Owens is abandoning his over-the-top delivery for a three-quarters arm slot. The Boston Red Sox hope it will help him develop better control.

Red Sox Minor Lines: Jason Groome starts again

Red Sox Minor Lines: Jason Groome starts again

Jason Groome was...fine in Lowell. Pawtucket W 8-0 Steve Selsky: 0-5, 3 K Bryce Brentz: 2-4, 2 2B, 1 BB, 1 R, 1 K Blake Swihart: 2-4, 1 2B, 1 R, 1 RBI Chandler Shepherd: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 4 K Jamie Callahan: 2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 2 K It was a solid night for Swihart down in Triple-A, which isn’t something we’ve been able to say much in 2017. Part of that (though it’s tough to speculate on how big of a part) is due to a thumb injury that caused him to miss a chunk of time early in the year and is likely still affecting him. Whatever the reason, it hurts that the Red Sox...

Red Sox Minor Lines: Michael Chavis’ impressive debut

Red Sox Minor Lines: Michael Chavis’ impressive debut

Michael Chavis looks good in his first taste of Double-A. Pawtucket L 2-9 Steve Selsky: 1-4, 1 K Bryce Brentz: 1-4, 1 R, 1 K Blake Swihart: 0-4, 2 K Henry Owens: 4 IP, 3 H, 4 R, 8 BB, 3 K Austin Maddox: 1.2 IP, 4 H, 4 R, 1 BB, 2 K Noe Ramirez: 2.1 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 1 K Exhibit A on why the Red Sox felt the need to sign Doug Fister and add more to their starting pitching depth. Owens was probably the next pitcher on the depth chart, and it’s clear that he still hasn’t figured out his control. At this point it’s totally fair to question whether or not he ever will. Portland W...

Red Sox Minor Lines: A big day for Tzu-Wei Lin

Tzu-Wei Lin’s breakout year continues Pawtucket L 3-6 Rusney Castillo: 1-2 Ryan Court: 2-2, 1 HR, 2 BB, 1 R, 2 RBI Steve Selsky: 0-4, 1 K Bryce Brentz: 1-3, 1 E Blake Swihart: 1-4, 1 2B Brandon Workman: 2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 4 K Ty Buttrey: 0.1 IP, 1 H, 5 R, 4 ER, 3 BB, 0 K Chandler Shepherd: 0.2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K Wednesday was a really rough day for Buttrey, who followed the major-league team’s lead by blowing the late lead for the PawSox. The righty is struggling a bit in adjusting to life in Triple-A, but with just five appearances under his belt it’s reasonable to...

Red Sox Minor Lines: Michael Chavis is the MVP

Of the All-Star Game. Pawtucket L 0-7 Rusney Castillo: 3-4 Bryce Brentz: 1-4, 1 K Blake Swihart: 1-4 Jalen Beeks: 6.1 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 3 BB, 9 K Jamie Callahan: 1 IP, 4 H, 3 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 1 K Noe Ramirez: 1.2 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 BB, 1 K It’s yet another big day for Beeks, who has not missed a beat since getting promoted to Triple-A. This is only speculation, but it wouldn’t surprise me to learn that he’s surpassed Henry Owens on the rotation depth chart. There are still some bullpen question marks with the lefty, but he’s quieting those concerns with every start. Portland L...
