Low-A Greenville Drive
Michael Chavis (1-4, K)
Rafael Devers (1-3, 2B, RBI, K)
Javier Guerra (0-3, 3 K)
- This is a concerning performance from Guerra, who has shown huge talent this season but also had major problems with strikeouts, punching out nearly 30% of the time. He is also mired in a tough stretch which has seen his hit only .194 with 12 strikeouts in 36 at bats. Still, Guerra has shown more offensively this season than anyone expected, sporting a solid .271/.328/.471 and displaying great power for a defense-first shortstop.
Nick Longhi (1-2)
Yoan Moncada (2-4, R, SB)
Jamie Callahan (2.2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, BB, 2 K)
- Callahan has been a major disappointment since Cherington and Co. made him a second-round pick in 2012. Three years after being drafted, he is posting a meager 6.48 ERA in 15 games in Low-A. He still won’t even turn 21 for almost two more months, but he hasn’t had much success yet in his minor league career.
Michael Chavis (1-3, 2B, R)
- Chavis, last year’s first-rounder is another Greenville hitter who has struggled with strikeouts this season. He is striking out exactly a third of the time this season and that has limited his slash line to only .207/.267/.356 in his first full season. Still, it was clear that he was raw when he was drafted and, at 19 years old, there’s still plenty of time for Chavis.
