Double-A Portland Sea Dogs
Carlos Asuaje (2-4)
- Asuaje has been struggling lately, hitting just .211 in his last ten games, but he turns in a nice performance here. He got off to a hot start in Portland but he’s now hitting only .246/.350/.375, with his patience at the plate probably his best talent. He projects as only a utility man going forward, but that’s about as much as you can expect from an 11th round pick.
Manuel Margot (1-4, R)
Simon Mercedes (4 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, K)
Sam Travis (1-4, R, RBI, BB, K)
